Australia today: Safety advisory against ViaGro

Newsroom24x7 Network

Canberra: ViaGro 500mg Male Enhancement capsules pose a serious risk to your health and should not be taken, according to a safety advisory issued in Astralia today.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested a product labelled ViaGro 500mg Male Enhancement capsules and found that:

the capsules contain the undeclared substances theophylline and caffeine.

Consumers have been advised that theophylline is a prescription only medicine in Australia and prescribed as a bronchodilator.

The supply of ViaGro 500mg Male Enhancement capsules containing undisclosed theophylline and caffeine is illegal.

ViaGro 500mg Male Enhancement capsules have not been assessed by the TGA for quality, safety or efficacy as required under Australian legislation, and the place of manufacture is not approved by the TGA.

TGA investigations have shown that a number of people in Australia may have bought the product online.

The TGA is working with the Australian Border Force (ABF) to help stop future shipments of ViaGro 500mg Male Enhancement capsules from entering Australia.

If these capsules are found at the border by the ABF they will be seized and destroyed.

The TGA is advising consumers to exercise extreme caution when purchasing medicines from unknown overseas Internet sites and has produced a short video on the risks associated with buying medicines and medical devices online.

The TGA warning says: Products purchased over the Internet may contain undisclosed and potentially harmful ingredients.
