Alert on Pronoton use
KUALA LUMPUR: Stop using Pronoton.
The Health Ministry issued this warning after the Drug Control Authority cancelled the product registration after a poison known as sildenafil and its variant, sildenafil analog, were detected in this product.
Sildenafil analog and sildenafil are not allowed to be formulated in a traditional product, the ministry said in a statement yesterday.
The public is advised against using traditional products containing sildenafil or its analogs without consulting a doctor.
The use of such drugs without proper diagnosis and monitoring can lead to adverse effects, including decreased blood pressure and cardiovascular-related symptoms.
Anyone in possession of Pronoton for sale is committing an offence under the Control Of Drugs and Cosmetics Regulations, 1984, and is liable to be fined up to a maximum of RM25,000 or sentenced to jail not exceeding three years, or both, for the first offence.
