FDA chemical analysis revealed that Energy Max contains thione
analog of sildenafil, a substance with a structure similar to
sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, an FDA-approved drug
for ED. Substances like this are called analogs because they have a
structure similar to another drug and may cause similar side effects
and drug interactions.
True Man contains a thione analog of sildenafil or piperadino
vardenafil, an analog of vardenafil, the active ingredient in
Levitra, another FDA-approved prescription drug for ED. Neither the
thione analog of sildenafil nor piperadino vardenafil are components
of approved drug products.
True Man is sold in boxes containing a 10-capsule blister pack.
Energy Max is sold in boxes containing two 10-capsule blister packs.
Both products are distributed and packed by America True Man Health,
Inc., West Covina, Calif. A review of the ingredient statements for
both products revealed that neither piperadino vardenafil nor thione
analog of sildenafil are listed as an ingredient, even though one or
more of those ingredients is present in the products.
