Health Canada has seized a male enhancement product from three Metro Vancouver stores
VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – If you use a product called “Harmony” for male sexual enhancement, you should stop using it right away and consider seeing a doctor.
Health Canada says the product, promoted as a herbal product, has far too high levels of a prescription erectile dysfunction drug and can have “potentially life-threatening” side effects.
The packaging calls itself a “virility booster” made from “100% natural extracts.” It states the product was made in Canada and “helps men achieve their best performance.”
 
A fourth retailer, Love Net Adult Boutique, voluntarily took it off of its shelves.
“Tadalafil should be used only under the supervision of a health care professional because of the risk of interactions with other medications and side effects. Prescription drugs can only be legally sold via a prescription,” Health Canada said in a statement.
It says the drug can cause “a potentially life-threatening decrease in blood pressure” for people who take any kind of nitrate drug, such as nitroglycerine. It can also increase the risk of a heart attack, stroke, chest pain, high blood pressure and abnormal heartbeat for those with existing heart problems.
Other possible side effects include headache, facial flushing, indigestion, dizziness, abnormal vision, and hearing loss.
Health Canada says if you have this product, you should stop using it right away. Call a doctor if you have concerns about your health after using the product.
You are also asked to report any issues or complaints to Health Canada.
