One Third of FDA Approved Drugs Experience Some Kind of Recall

Jason Reese

Synopsis

  • A recent FDA analysis has concluded that the sexual enhancer drug, Rhino 69 Extreme 50000 is tainted with undeclared tadalafil. The analysis has caused the drug’s wholesaler to initiate a voluntary recall.
  • Tadalafil is an active ingredient in a FDA-approved prescription drug that is used for erectile dysfunction.
  • Some Rhino 69 consumers with underlying cardiovascular diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol or heart disease, could face fatal consequences when mixing the enhancer with regular medicines like nitrates.
  • So far, there have not been any reports of adverse events related to this recall but in 2017, the American Medical Association released a report showing that many drugs the FDA approves are involved in some kind of recall or safety event after being released to consumers.

Sexual Enhancement Drug on FDA’s Recall Watchlist

On April 18, 2018, AMA Wholesale Inc. voluntarily recalled Rhino 69 Extreme 50000 capsules at the consumer level after a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) analysis found the product to be tainted with undeclared tadalafil. Tadalafil is an active ingredient in a FDA-approved prescription drug that is used for erectile dysfunction. As of April 24, 2018, the distributor had not yet received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

According to the FDA, “consumers who take supplements for erectile dysfunction could have underlying cardiovascular disease (from diabetes, hypertension, and others). Consumers with diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol or heart disease often take nitrates; concomitant use of nitrates and PDE5 inhibitors can lead to fatal cardiovascular collapse.”

Consumers/distributors/retailers that have purchased ‘Rhino 69 Extreme 50000’ should immediately stop the consumption and the resale of the product and return the product to the place of purchase for a refund.

1/3 of FDA Approved Drugs Recalled From 2001 and 2010

About a third of the drugs the FDA approved between 2001 and 2010 were involved in some kind of safety event after reaching the market, according to a 2017 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Additional conclusions to the study found that:

  • 222 novel therapeutics had been approved.
  • There were 123 post-market safety events involving 71 products that required FDA warning or recall action.
  • 3 were withdrawn while 61 received new boxed warnings and 59 required enhanced safety communications.

To get FDA approval, the majority of the drugs with safety events were trialed in 1,000 or fewer patients.
