SINGAPORE: Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has advised members of the public not to purchase or consume ‘Prime Kopi Pejuang 3 in 1’ marketed online as a natural product containing “herbal ingredients of high quality” that enhances men’s sexual health.

After receiving feedback on two cases of adverse effects seen in consumers, tests conducted on the coffee product found contrary to the advertisement claims, it is not natural or herbal and instead contains high concentration of an undeclared synthetic potent medicinal ingredient, ‘tadalafil’.

According to HSA, one consumer was admitted to the hospital emergency department after he experienced adverse effects such as body aches, chills, migraine, tightness around the jawline.

“Another consumer experienced priapism or prolonged erection of about four hours long after taking the product. Priapism is a serious condition and can lead to penile tissue damage and permanent loss of potency if not treated immediately,” it said in its website.

HSA said consumers who consume the product according to the labelled instructions for use – one sachet daily – could be overdosing on more than 10 times the usual prescribed dose of tadalafil.
