ISSUE: FDA lab analysis of Revivexxx Extra Strength was found to contain undeclared tadalafil. Tadalafil is an FDA-approved drug for the treatment of male Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making Revivexxx Extra Strength an unapproved drug. This poses a threat to consumers 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.

All lots of this product with expiration dates including and prior to August 2013 currently available on the market are being recalled.
