Viga and Viga for Women is a dietary supplement sold OTC and via the internet that marketed itself not as a prescription drug but as a dietary supplement pill. It was a dietary supplement version of Viagra, which is a drug for erectile dysfunction. Viga was supposed to be natural thus eliminating the dangerous or unpleasant side effects of the prescription drug Viagra. Viagra cannot be purchased over the counter because it is a prescription drug containing the ingredient sildenafil. However, sildenafil was illegally added to Viga. The manufacturers however (a step further into illegality), failed to include sildenafil on the product ingredient label. It is not legal for dietary supplements to contain prescription ingredients because they are not as firmly regulated and can create greater potential for serious injuries or risks in people who take the pill.
Viga manufacturers put everyone who took their pill in a great deal of risk. Viagra users are warned that taking the drug with prescription nitrates is potentially deadly because it can cause a severe drop in blood pressure. Viga, while still containing sildenafil, advertised itself as the natural alternative to Viagra that wouldn't cause these side effects, while knowing that it would. They hoped to make a profit off of those who couldn't take Viagra by lying and committing illegal acts. When they were caught, Viga recalled the drug saying that the "potential for this product to be taken by unknowing nitrate users is real, since erectile dysfunction is often a concurrent condition in patients with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, smokers, and patients with ischemic heart disease."
They knowingly and negligently caused great injury and the potential for even greater injury and should pay the price for their inhumane desire for money which overrode their obligation to obey the law and protect their patients' health and well-being. If you or a loved on has been affected by Viga, you have the right to pursue a lawsuit to be compensated financially for your pain and losses.
