Man Up Pills recall by FDA over health risk. The recall from the FDA is for the male enhancement Man Up Pills by Synergy Distribution. They have been marketed as “herbal” and “all natural,” which leads consumers to believe that there is no health risk associated with them.

The recall was announced after the FDA found it the pills contained sulfoaildenafil. It is a chemical similar to sildenafil and the active ingredient in Viagra. This drug has been known to dangerously lower blood pressures.

“Man Up Now” has been sold on-line and possibly in retail stores. They came in single, double, and triple blister packs, and in six-, 12-, and 30-count capsule bottles. So far, there have not been any reported adverse events associated with the use of the product.

However, the FDA warns that products marketed as dietary supplements for male enhancement can be harmful because they contain active ingredients in FDA-approved drugs or variations of these ingredients. Consumers are being advised to consult a health care professional and safely discard the product, if they have had any negative side effects. Adverse effects should be reported by consumers and health care professionals to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either on-line, by regular mail or by fax.
