Health Canada is warning consumers to not use Harmony, a male sexual enhancement capsule, because it may pose serious health risks. Harmony is promoted as a herbal product for male virility. It was authorized as a natural health product, but Health Canada testing found it contains high levels of a prescription erectile dysfunction drug, tadalafil.
The product was not authorized to contain tadalafil, it was not authorized as a sexual enhancement product, and it did not list tadalafil on the product label. As a result, Health Canada has suspended the product licence for Harmony (NPN 80044321).
Tadalafil should be used only under the supervision of a health care professional because of the risk of interactions with other medications and side effects. Prescription drugs can only be legally sold via a prescription. In Canada, the maximum dosage authorized in prescription tadalafil for erectile dysfunction is 20 mg per dose. Harmony samples were found to contain approximately three times that amount per capsule.
Health Canada executed a search warrant and seized the product from three stores, and directed a fourth store to remove it from sale. The stores are:
Male & Female Harmony Adult Boutique, 1402 W. Broadway, Vancouver, B.C. (product was seized)
Male & Female Harmony Store, 1030 – 4540 No. 3 Road, Richmond, B.C. (product was seized)
Love in Love Adult Store, 4554 Kingsway, Burnaby, B.C. (also known as Male & Female Harmony Store) (product was seized)
Love Net Adult Boutique, 4687 Kingsway, Burnaby, B.C. (retailer removed the product from shelves)
