What’s the problem with X-ROCK?
April 19, 2012 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release today informing the public that XROCK INDUSTRIES is currently recalling all lot numbers of the following product because they may contain an analogue of an ingredient in an FDA-approved drug:
- X-ROCK dietary supplement – UPC 0030950792 – packaged individually in one capsule blister cards
Analytical tests conducted by the FDA concluded that this product contains hydroxythiohomosildenafil, an analogue of sildenafil, which is the active ingredient erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra.
Hydroxythiohomosildenafil is structurally similar to sildenafil, and is expected to cause the same side effects and adverse reactions. These undeclared active ingredients have been shown to have the potential to interact with nitrates found in certain prescription medications such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Additionally, both hydroxythiohomosildenafil and sildenafil may cause more moderate side effects such as headaches and flushing.
Consumers who have X-ROCK capsules included in this recall in their possession should discard them immediately or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
