The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Consumer Alert: Libimax

     The ingredients are listed here.

    But, oops. Nature & Health Co. forgot to mention it also contains tadalafil (Cialis), a prescription drug used to treat impotence (aka erectile dysfunction).

    According to the FDA, this product poses a threat to health because tadalafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.

    Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates and would be a highest risk of adverse reactions to this product.

    If you have Libimax in your possession, stop using it and contact your physician if you experienced any problem that may be related to taking this product.
