Uganda forbids the importation and use of an erectile dysfunction medicine associated with heart issues. The usage and import of the erectile dysfunction medication L-Power Coffee, which includes tadalafil and may cause cardiac issues among other health issues, has been outlawed in Uganda.
Following laboratory testing that proved Tadalafil, a prescription medication, was added to L-Power Coffee, the nation’s National Drug Authority (NDA) issued a warning to the public Tuesday evening.
“Tadalafil is a medication for erectile dysfunction that must be used under strict instructions by a qualified medical professional because it has serious side effects,” according to NDA. These side effects include severe respiratory and cardiac issues, urinary problems, and occasionally even coma and death.
The NDA claims that the medicine was being smuggled into the nation while being disguised as a nutritious drug.
According to the pharmaceuticals agency, “NDA formally informed the importers of L-Power to take full responsibility for its destruction and recall.”
The authorities declared that it will keep looking into the drug use and prosecute anyone responsible.
The NDA stated, “We hereby direct all pharmacies, drug stores, supermarkets, online shops or any dealers in drugs and health nutritional supplements to cease with immediate effect stocking, selling, distributing or dealing in L-Power Coffee.”
