A recent CNN Health article discussed an FDA warning against certain e-liquids used in electronic cigarettes. Apparently two e-liquids from HelloCig contain tadalafil and sildenafil, which also happen to be main ingredients in two of the biggest erectile dysfunction drugs. The FDA claims the products aren’t properly labeled as they fail to provide adequate warnings. The undeclared ingredients could react with nitrates in the drugs to lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.

The FDA says that all consumers should cease use of the products immediately and that anyone experiencing side effects should report them to the MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.
