The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) advises that the product marketed as Chao Jimengnan 'SuperPowerful Man' tablets poses a potentially serious health risk to consumers.

TGA laboratory analysis has detected the presence of the prescription-only ingredients sulfosildenafil and tadalafil. The amounts of the prescription-only ingredients are significant and may cause severe side effects.

People who take 'SuperPowerful Man' tablets may have a drop in their blood pressure, which may cause:

These effects may be greater in those consumers taking medication for:
