Unapproved Over The Counter Drugs Marketed for Prevention and Treatment of Sexually Transmitted Diseases

March 6, 2008

FDA advised healthcare professionals and consumers that the Agency issued Warning Letters to six U.S. companies and one foreign individual for marketing unapproved and misbranded drugs over the internet to U.S. consumers for the prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (STD's).

The products are marketed under the names Tetrasil, Genisil, Aviralex, OXi-MED, Imulux, Beta-mannan, Micronutrient, Qina, and SlicPlus.

The products claim to prevent or treat a variety of STDs, including Herpes, Chlamydia, Human Papilloma Virus, cervical dysplasia, and HIV/AIDS.

The products pose a serious health threat to unsuspecting consumers who don't know that these products are not FDA approved and have not been proven safe or effective.

Consumers who are currently using these products should stop using them immediately and consult their healthcare professional if they have experienced any adverse effects that they suspect are related to the use of these products.
