Tadalafil and sildenafil can be employed only under the guidance by a licensed health expert, partly because they interact with the common prescription medicines referred to as Nitrates. Nitrates are typically taken by those suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease and act by causing blood vessels to expand, thereby increasing blood flow and oxygen into the heart as per StatPearls, a medical data base.

Tadalafil and sildenafil both make blood vessels dilate. If a person consumes these drugs simultaneously with nitrates their blood pressure could drop to levels that are dangerously low. Blood pressure that is extremely low can be fatal because vital organs aren’t receiving the proper amount of oxygen and blood, and the lack of oxygen can cause shock, irreparable damage to organs and death, as per The Mayo Clinic.
The four companies who were issued warning letters comprise Thirstyrun LLC MKS Enterprise LLC, Shopaax.com as well as 1am USA Incorporated dba Pleasure Products USA. The FDA claimed that these companies broke federal law by selling active chemical ingredients in products sold as food products and by not claiming that their products cure disease or enhance health. In particular, the productscomprising Etumax VIP Royal Honey for Him, Dose Vital Honey for men, Secret Miracle Royal Honey for Her, and the X-Rated Honey for Men were advertised as products for sexual enhancement.
The FDA advises consumers to consult with a medical professional before attempting any over-the-counter products targeted at sexual enhancement. Consumers are also able to refer to the FDA’s health database to determine whether a product has been identified as potentially dangerous.
Health care professionals and consumers are able to report adverse reactions to certain products by submitting a report through FDA’s MedWatch program, or through the Safety Reporting Portal
