The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested four samples of a product labelled VigRX Plus tablets and found that two of those samples contained the undeclared substance tadalafil. The two samples tested by the TGA that contained tadalafil are counterfeit versions of VigRX Plus tablets.
Tadalafil should only be used on the advice of a medical practitioner and requires a prescription by a medical practitioner. The taking of medicines containing tadalafil without the advice of a medical practitioner poses a significant and serious health risk.
Photos of the two products tested by TGA which contained tadalafil appear below.
VigRX Plus tablets (counterfeit or otherwise) have not been assessed by the TGA for quality, safety or efficacy.
VigRX Plus tablets (counterfeit or otherwise) are not approved for sale in Australia.
Information for consumers
Consumers should be aware there are counterfeit versions of VigRX Plus tablets available for purchase.
If you have any concerns arising from your use of this product, the TGA recommends that you stop taking it and consult your health care practitioner.
Action the TGA is taking
The TGA is working with Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) to help stop future shipments of the VigRX Plus tablets containing tadalafil or other undeclared prescription substances from entering Australia. Any such tablets found at the border by ACBPS will be seized and destroyed.
