Public Alert No. 025/2021- Alert on Recall of Poseidon Platinum 3500 by Yamtun7 Due to the Presence of Undeclared Tadalafil and Sildenafil
July 30, 2021,
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has been informed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that Yamtun7 is voluntarily recalling all lots of Poseidon Platinum 3500. The result of analysis by FDA found the product to contain undeclared tadalafil and sildenafil.
Tadalafil and sildenafil are drugs known as phosphodiesterase (PDE-5) inhibitors found in FDA approved products for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The presence of tadalafil and sildenafil in Poseidon Platinum 3500 makes it an unapproved new drug for which the safety and efficacy have not been established.
Poseidon Platinum 3500 is marketed as a dietary supplement for male sexual enhancement.
These undeclared ingredients may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.
Consumers with underlying medical issues who take Poseidon Platinum 3500 with undeclared tadalafil and sildenafil may experience serious health risks. For example, PDE-5 inhibitors may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels that may be life-threatening. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease often take nitrates.
