On Tuesday, ex-NBA star Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel after allegedly taking numerous illegal drugs in addition to “herbal Viagra” for long-term erection effects. The FDA warns against using tainted supplements that include botanical and herbal ingredients mixed with active ingredients found in Cialis and Viagra. So will people be arrested for providing this substance for sale to Odom? Does Odom potentially have a lawsuit against the providers? Does the FDA play a role in these supplements being sold in the free market? Matt Morgan joins Tamara Holder on Fox News “Sports Court” to discuss:

herbal viagra fda warning lamar overdose brothel las vegasThe FDA provides a litany of information for consumers. Please visit these sites to educate yourself before taking any over-the-counter “supplement.”

  • Consumer Update on ‘All Natural’ Alternatives for Erectile Dysfunction: A Risky Proposition
  • Tainted products database
  • Tainted weight loss products (includes specific products and photos of labels)
  • Tainted sexual enhancement products
  • Tainted body building products
  • Additionally, contrary to Matt Morgan’s statement on Sports Court, the FDA does regulate supplements. By law, the FDA does not have pre-market approval in the same way it does for drugs, but firms do have standards to meet and uphold.
  • Unlike drug products that must be proven safe and effective for their intended use before marketing by the FDA, there are no provisions in the law for FDA to “approve” dietary supplements for safety or effectiveness before they reach the consumer. By law (DSHEA), the manufacturer itself, is responsible for ensuring that its dietary supplement products are safe before they are marketed.
  • Under DSHEA, once the product is on the market, the FDA has the responsibility for showing that a dietary supplement is “unsafe” before it can take action to restrict the product’s use or remove the product from the marketplace.
