Health bosses have issued a warning over “dangerous” sex pills that can be bought online that could leave you with a prolonged erection.
You might think that prolonged is a good thing, but if you’re erect for too long it can cause lasting damage to the blood vessels in your manhood and even lead to erectile dysfunction.
On top of that, the Krazzy Rhino sex pills can also cause splitting headaches, problems with blood pressure and heart problems, the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) has warned.
The pills, which contain the same active ingredient as Viagra, can be bought on sites like Amazon and eBay in the US for around £30, promising a “night you won’t forget” that will leave your “partner begging for more”.
But they have not been approved by regulatory bodies.
Since 2007 the FDA has found more than 25 products marketed under the name Rhino that contain hidden drugs, the regulatory body warned.
Products include Platinum Rhino 25000, Krazzy Rhino 25000 and Gold Rhino 25000.
The FDA has received reports of people experiencing chest pain, severe headaches and prolonged erections after taking a Rhino product, with many needing surgical intervention or a hospital visit due to extreme drops in blood pressure.
Donald Ashley, of the FDA’s Centre for Drug Evaluation and Research, said: “Over the past few years, the FDA has been combating the retail sale of male enhancement drug products that are frequently misrepresented as dietary supplements and that contain hidden and potentially harmful active drug ingredients.
“We remain vigilant in our efforts to protect the American public from the sale of these potentially dangerous products.”
The dangerous cannot be shipped to the UK from Amazon, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be shipped through other unregulated websites.
The drugs are not only associated with damage to the penis if they’re not taken in prescribed amounts, but can interact with other medications.
For example, they may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels,The FDA said.
People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease often take nitrates.
