The Australian medical advisory body, the TGA, has issued a safety warning for illegal male sexual supplements.
Panther Power Platinum 11000 is a male sexual supplement that is illegal to advertise and sell in Australia.
The TGA said the pills pose a “serious risk to your health and should not be taken”.
After testing, the TGA found the pills contain an “undeclared substance” called sildenafil.
Sildenafil is a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction.
The TGA said sildenafil can lower a person’s blood pressure to a dangerously low level if they’re taking other prescription medication.
“Sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels,” the TGA said in a statement.
“People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease are often prescribed nitrates.”
The TGA is working with the Australian Border Force to stop any more shipments of the pills from entering Australia.
People are advised to immediately stop using Panther Power Platinum 11000 pills.
If anyone has used this drug and is concerned, they are urged to contact a health care practitioner.
