Dec 10, 2020 – Sildenafil and trazodone The tablets were recalled by pharmaceutical distributor AvKare because the drugs were “inadvertently packaged together” when they were bottled by a third-party supplier, according to the company.

Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra, used to treat erectile dysfunction, and trazodone is used to treat major depression.

The recall concerns the 100 milligram (mg) sildenafil tablets, batch 36884 with an expiration date of 03/2022, and the trazodone 100 mg tablets, batch 36783 with an expiration date of 06/2022, CNN reported.

Unintentional consumption of sildenafil can lead to serious health risks for people with underlying medical conditions, the FDA said. The drug interacts with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (like nitroglycerin) lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels. People with Diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease often take nitrates.

During this time, mistakenly taking trazodone may cause sedation, dizziness, constipation, and Blurred vision, the FDA said.

Avkare stated that he did not know of any patients injured by the recalled products, CNN reported.
