Days- long boner tablets warn­ing

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

MEN are be­ing warned about a black- mar­ket Vi­a­gra- style tablet that causes erec­tions that last for DAYS.

The du­bi­ous drug is sold un­der var­i­ous names at petrol sta­tions and cor­ner shops, usu­ally in sin­gle- dose packs.

Some of the hid­den in­gre­di­ents are sim­i­lar to those found in pre­scrip­tion erec­tile dys­func­tion pills Vi­a­gra and Cialis.

But the U. S. Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion said it’s re­ceived re­ports of men who’ve ex­pe­ri­enced chest pain, headaches and ex­tended erec­tions af­ter tak­ing the pills.

Some cases re­sulted in “sur­gi­cal in­ter­ven­tion and hos­pi­tal­i­sa­tion due to ex­treme drops in blood pres­sure,” the agency said.

The pills were sold un­der names like Rhino, Orgazen, Black Pan­ther, Libi­grow, Black Stal­lion and Black Mamba.
