The Agency have been notified of the voluntary recall of all lots of Apexxx tablets by Nuway Distributors due to discovered undeclared amount of PDE-5 Inhibitor (Sildenafil) which is the active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction (ED) making the product which is marketed as a dietary supplement for male sexual enhancement an unapproved drug.

Sildenafil is not listed as ingredient on the product labels and may interact with nitrates contained in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and other nitrate contained drugs mostly consumed by patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease. This may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels that may be life threatening. Additionally, the product may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing.

NAFDAC implores the members of the public, importers, retailers and consumers to be pro-active by ensuring that these products are not purchased or consumed.
