FDA Takes a Hard Line on Vaping Viagra

The Food and Drug Administration, in October, sent a warning letter to HelloCig Electronic Technology Co. Ltd for brazenly selling e-cigarette liquids laced with erectile dysfunction drugs.

HelloCig was selling two e-cigarette liquids, one containing an ingredient active in Cialis and the other an ingredient for Viagra. Although both Cialis and Viagra are FDA-approved prescription drugs, they are not approved to be added to e-liquid, the FDA claims.

The FDA also warned that these ingredients, sildenafil and tadalafil, may interact with some prescription drugs used to treat high blood pressure or heart disease, and can lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.

“There are no e-liquid products approved to contain prescription drugs or any other medications that require a doctor’s supervision,” FDA chief Scott Gottlieb stated. “This action is part of FDA’s broader effort to regulate the safety of vaping products, and crack down on misleading claims and illegal and dangerous e-liquids that may entice youth or put consumers at risk.”
