Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement Capsules

Safety advisory

10 February 2021

Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement capsules pose a serious risk to your health and should not be taken.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested a product labelled Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement capsules and found that:

  • The capsules contain the undeclared substances:
    • Sildenafil
    • Tadalafil; and
    • Dipyrone

Consumers are advised that products which contain sildenafil and tadalafil are prescription-only medicines in Australia.

Dipyrone is prohibited in Australia due to a rare life-threatening blood disorder called agranulocytosis. Dipyrone is not found in the Poisons Standard but is a derivative of Schedule 10 (S10) substance aminophenazone. Schedule 10 substances are of such a danger to health as to warrant prohibition of sale, supply and use.

The supply of Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement capsules containing sildenafil, tadalafil and dipyrone is illegal.

Resurrection Male Sexual 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.
