The pills, called Powers-X, were sold as a natural product, but the Medicines Agency says this is misleading and could be dangerous for some people.

The Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products, part of the Ministry of Health, has withdrawn a food supplement from the market because it contains the active ingredient Viagra. The product, called “Powers-X”, was found to contain sildenafil, which means it must be classified as a drug and violates regulations.

The tablets were marketed as a natural product, which the agency said “hide its true composition from the consumer and gave misleading information about its safety.”

According to the label, the so-called dietary supplement was produced by the company VITAMAC SAS in Bogotá (Colombia) and sold through @Powersexcolombia.com. Analyzes of the product revealed that it “contains the active substance sildenafil in sufficient quantity to restore, correct or modify a physiological function by pharmacological action, which confers on it the legal status of a drug. However, this substance is not mentioned on the label, which is misleading,” according to the drug agency.

In a statement, the agency also warned that the presence of sildenafil poses a risk to people who are particularly at risk of adverse reactions to PDE-5 inhibitors and that these people may turn to such products, which appear to be natural, as an alternative to prescription drugs.
