Lots of men experience erectile dysfunction (ED), particularly as they get older. Some men ignore the problem. This is the worst thing you can do. There are a wide variety of ways to treat the condition, many of them noninvasive. What’s more, ED can be a symptom of a larger, life threatening issue. Many men will refuse to have sex with their partner when experiencing ED, damaging the relationship, sometimes irreparably. Every guy experiences ED now and them. But It is important to see a doctor if the trouble persists.
The second worst thing a man can do, aside from ignoring the problem, is purchase male enhancement products over the internet. Beware of counterfeit ED products. Oftentimes no regulatory agency has evaluated these products for safety. One particular case arose in November, 2013 when the federal food and drug administration (FDA) told consumers to watch out for a product called,“ExtenZe Maximum Strength”. The FDA warned that the supplement could be particularly dangerous for those with heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol.
The FDA said “ExtenZe Maximum Strength” looked very much like a similarly named product on the market, ExtenZe. The latter is manufactured in California by Biotab Nutraceuticals Inc. The counterfeit product contained sildenafil, the FDA found. The original does not. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra. The counterfeit version can be purchased online and at certain retailers without a prescription. However, this counterfeit medication could be dangerous to certain men who are also taking nitrates–a type of medication common for heart disease and diabetes sufferers. Those on nitrates who also take sildenafil could see their blood pressure plummet to dangerous levels.
This counterfeit product can be identified by lot number 0512058 printed on the box. If you find you are taking a counterfeit product such as this, stop taking it and seek out a physician. If you are experiencing ED, it is important to get evaluated by a medical professional. There are lots of causes. The right cure should be administered for the particular cause. Also, other health considerations need to be taken into account, as we can see with this case.
