FDA Warning: 'Ninja Mojo,' 'Love Rider' Contain Hidden Drugs

The Food and Drug Administration says its tests have found undeclared drug ingredients in supplements marketed for the enhancement of sexual performance.

News from the FDA on an enhancement supplement:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use “Love Rider,” a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement on various websites, and in some retail stores.
FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that “Love Rider” contains tadalafil, the active ingredient in the FDA approved prescription drug Cialis, used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).  This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates, which are found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin.  This interaction may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.  Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take prescription drugs that contain nitrates. 
Consumers should stop using this product immediately and throw it away.  Consumers who have experienced any negative side effects should consult a health care professional as soon as possible. 
Health care professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.
