NAFDAC seizes various brands of aphrodisiacs in Benin

NAFDAC warned against use of un-prescribed sex stimulants.

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, seized various brands of unregistered aphrodisiacs (sex stimulant drugs) used by men from patent medicine shops, the Unit Head, NAFDAC Benin office, David West, said on Tuesday.

Mr. West said 16 offenders involved in the sales of the unwholesome products in the last four months were also sanctioned.

He said the16 offenders were involved in the sale of banned, expired and unregistered products.

“The sex stimulant drugs are unregistered and cannot be registered because the packaging and presentation is offensive and the drugs are dangerous to health.

“The drugs overwork the heart, which could result to hypertension and sudden deaths. There were also no names and addresses of where these drugs were produced,” he said.

Mr. West listed the names of the drugs to include Sexy Bunny, Man Cool, Le Sexe Cenal and Le Sexe Oral, and advised that the use of such drugs should be discontinued.

He also advised that the use of sex stimulant drugs should be with the recommendation of medical doctors.

The NAFDAC representative said that other activities carried out by the agency within the period under review include breast milk substitute advocacy and 2012 NAFDAC Consumer Safety Club (NCSC) Quiz competition.
