Vape juice being sold online found to contain ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION medication

If you buy vape juice online, you might want to double check the ingredients.

The US Food and Drug Administration has alerted consumers about two e-liquids that contain undeclared erectile dysfunction drugs.

The vape juices, called ‘E-Cialis HelloCig E-Liquid’ and ‘E-Rimonabant HelloCig E-Liquid’, are being sold by HelloCig Electronic Technology Co.

Worryingly, they were found to contain tadalafil and sildenafil – the active ingredient in Viagra.

Aside from the obvious effect, these undeclared ingredients may also interact with with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.

People at risk include those with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease, who often take nitrates.

A spokesperson for the FDA said: “Sildenafil and tadalafil are the active pharmaceutical ingredients in FDA-approved prescription drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction.
