Beware of Over the Counter Potency/Stamina Pills

By: Dr. Gary Bellman on April 8, 2013, 12:52 pm

In every health food and convenience store there are over the counter supplements that many men try. The FDA in the article below warns and cautions men against taking these unregulated substances.

Why? They may be packaged and marketed as natural supplements and have active ingredients like Viagra and Cialis which may be unsafe for some men. Before we prescribe these medications we need to make sure there are no negative interactions with a man’s other medication.

Second, these ‘natural’ supplements, especially the testosterone boosters can contain oral testosterone which can be dangerous for the liver.

You are best off seeing a urologist, (a men’s health specialist) for professional advice dealing with sexual performance, stamina, or testosterone issues.
