FDA warns consumers to avoid sexual enhancement pills

The Food and Drug Administration is warning men who take Man Up Now capsules to stop taking them immediately.  The supplement contains a variation of an active ingredient found in Viagra that can lower blood pressure to dangerous levels, the agency says.  It is marketed as an "herbal" and "all natural" sexual enhancement dietary supplements.

The FDA issued the warning after chemists analyzed Man Up Now and found it contains sulfoaildenafil, a chemical similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra.  When mixed with prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, the FDA says, Man Up Now can cause blood pressure to drop and that can lead to dizziness or light-headedness.

By Monday morning the FDA had not received any reports of problems surrounding Man Up Now.  But if you are taking the supplement and have had any problems, the FDA suggests seeing a doctor and reporting it to the FDA.

Man Up Now is distributed by Synergy Distribution, LLC and is sold online and possibly in stores, according to the FDA.  CNN contacted Synergy Distribution for comment and so far, hasn't heard back.

    According to one website, I am in the 99.75 percentile for IQ. That means I could still be a lemming. ;-)~

    The FDA and CNN just increased the sales of Man Up by 10,000%. If I was an owner of Man Up, I would be extremely happy right now...and no, I'm not going to throw in a pun here.

    Viagra causes these same side-effects in a small number of patients. So what's the difference? The FDA should require the package to give the same warning as Viagra. It's actions like these by the FDA that make consumers believe they're in the pocket of the drug companies.

    I tried a bunch of different male enhancement products and saw decent results, I started taking invigorate and it was potent, worked really fast..It wasn't like the prescription I have for levitra though, it worked differently, it felt more natural....I still take it and like it, never had any issues I found it at http://invigorateit.com

    Low libido and erectile dysfunction can affect personal relationships and cause frustration for everyone involved. However, treating sexual dysfunction can be as easy as taking herbs that help with the symptoms you are experiencing, or taking a supplement that contains the ingredients to treat several symptoms at once. Here’s how to get back under those sheets and learn to look forward to sex again.
    Women who suffer from low libido are often dealing with an underlying sexual arousal disorder. If you experience a decreased blood flow, lack of lubrication, or a delay or absence of orgasm after experiencing sexual excitement you may suffer from a low libido.

    Not sure if you knew this but your store has some problems that you might want to consider looking into.
    I spent 2-3 minutes looking around and found:

    * Your facebook page has low engagement and it is missing some important e-marketing automation tools.

    * You ecommerce store does not have a messenger widget or any plugins which means you are leaving some money on the table,
    users nowadays prefer to buy within messenger which open rate is very high compared to email.

    * People do not buy from the first impression of your store, However; with messenger sequence of messages, you can sell whatever the nich you are working on.
