The FDA acts (again)
It's easy to get the impression the FDA does very little to protect the American consumer. When you look back at this last year, there have been an alarming number of problems with produce causing food poisoning, there have been new warnings about household-name drugs, and several refusals by the management team to follow the scientific evidence to ban or limit the use of various medical devices and products on the market. But, in one area at least, the FDA does take its role seriously. Put another way, there is sufficient funding given to this division to allow it to carry out its duties effectively. So, when you browse around the news media in both printed form and on the internet, the FDA monitors how drugs and devices are marketed. If there is evidence the ads are not properly balanced or actually misleading, the manufacturer and distributor can be ordered to change the wording. In this, one of the key considerations is whether the public are given adequate warning of the possible side effects from taking medications. That's why, when you sit through a fifty-second commercial on television, you get the voice-over spending most of the time listing the possible problems.
One of the more controversial series of ads sells male enhancement products. This is a wonderful way of describing a range of pills, powders, liquids, lotions and creams a man may consume, splash on or rub into his penis to produce a longer, harder erection with more semen and a general improvement in the level of satisfaction achievable at orgasm. One school of thought thinks these ads come close to obscenity but, thanks to the First Amendment, the right of free speech prevails and often explicit wording is allowed to stand. In the midst of all these ads competing for your attention were those praising the merits of Stiff Nights — no doubt what this product was promising to provide. Perhaps surprisingly, all the users found this "all natural dietary supplement" to be highly effective. The manufacturer was shipping an increasing number of units all around the world as its fame spread by word-of-mouth. But the FDA was hot on their trail as lab tests came up with a list of the actual ingredients. The standout was sulfoaildenafil. This is one of the generic compounds almost identical to the brand name drug levitra. In other words, the reason for this product's amazing success was that it was mixing in a highly effective medication.
This gave the lie to its advertizing copy which claimed Stiff Nights was "all natural". Why should this matter? Well, like its branded equivalent, sulfoaildenafil reduces blood pressure. If it is taken at the same time as any other drug containing a nitrate, this can produce fainting and a coma. So, in a blaze of publicity sent around the world, Stiff Nights joins the list of some 28 other "natural" enhancement products banned by the FDA since 2004. If you see it or any other comparable male product advertized on the internet, ignore the claims. There is nothing out there that comes close to matching the effectiveness of the erectile dysfunction medications. In full-scale clinical trials, the FDA has been convinced of the safety and effectiveness of these drugs. Buy levitra and find out why this is considered the most powerful of all the erectile dysfunction drugs.
