Hero Instant Energy for Men Pills: TGA Health Alert Issued

A brand of “energy pills” that contain an erectile dysfunction drug should not be taken and pose a “serious” risk paganhas said the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

The TGA today issued the HERO Instant Energy for Males capsule warning.

Tests revealed that the pills contained Taladafil, also known as Cialis, which is used to treat erectile dysfunction.

However, the HERO pills do not declare the presence of taladafil, the TGA said.

The substance can interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.

People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease often take medications that contain nitrates.
