Side-effects of Black ant pills range from stuffy nose, stomach aches and headaches to more severe effects such as painful erections, dizziness, shortness of breath and chest pain. These side-effects are caused primarily by sildenafil, an undeclared component of the drug, states Heal Cure.
FDA laboratory analysis has confirmed that Black ant pills contain three times the starting dosage of sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra. Sildenafil is an undeclared component of the Black Ant pills, which is known to interact adversely with other medications. For example, sildenafil interacts with nitrates present in prescriptions drugs such as nitroglycerin which is prescribed for patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and heart diseases. This drug-to-drug interaction can lower blood pressure levels to dangerous levels in these patients, says the US Food And Drug Administration.
Additionally, the presence of sildenafil, which is to be consumed strictly under prescription, Black ant pills may lead to some mild to severe side-effects such as headaches, stomach upsets, stuffy nose, memory lapse, chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath and painful erections, reports Heal Cure. The FDA has warned consumers who experience any of these side-effects to stop using the drug immediately and has advised them to consult a health care professional.
