The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the public to desist from consuming some 6 herbal drugs in the market because they have some secret ingredients with deadly effects.

According to the FDA, the ingredient is called Sildenafil and has the potential of treating erectile dysfunction.

In a statement, the FDA stated that patients must only use Sildenafil only when they are prescribed by a medical doctor.

The list of drugs are as follows:

1. Vigoura Capsules, manufactured by Evergreen Healthcare Ghana Ltd.

6. Time Natural Capsules manufactured by Kenoga Company Ltd.

The Public Relations Officer of FDA told Accra-based Starr FM that “If someone brings a product to FDA to register as a herbal medicine and then you go and put in something else for the product to appear in a different way outside the purpose for which it was registered then it’s a deception to the general public. We have immediately canceled the market authorization we have given these products so they have been banned.”
