Recently, the FDA released the results of the analysis it performed on the product, and needless to say, these results were not positive in nature. Below is the specific language used on the press release distributed by the FDA recently:
“…lab analysis by FDA of Zencore Tabs samples found the product contains potentially harmful, undeclared ingredients. FDA asserts that its chemical analysis revealed that one lot of Zencore Tabs contains aminotadalafil, an analog of tadalafil, the active ingredient of a FDA-approved drug used for Erectile Dysfunction (ED). FDA maintains Aminotadalafil is close in structure to tadalafil and is expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile. Further, FDA declares another lot of Zencore Tabs contains sildenafil, the active ingredient of another FDA-approved drug used for ED, as well as sulfosildenafil and sulfohomosildenafil, both are analogs of sildenafil. All of these undeclared chemicals pose a threat to consumers because they may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.”
In plain English, Zencore Tabs could pose a significant risk to those people who are already taking medication for such conditions as high blood pressure or heart-related problems.
Can I file a lawsuit if I have suffered damages from taking Zencore Dietary Supplement Tabs?
Possibly. While all medications have certain, anticipated side effects, a drug manufacturer has a duty to inform physicians adequately regarding the known risks associated with its drugs. If a manufacturer fails to do so, it can be held responsible to patients who are injured as the result of inadequate warnings, under a legal theory known as “product liability.” Depending upon the particular circumstances of your case, damages may include recovery for any of the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Emotional distress

You may also wish to contact an experienced Zencore lawyer to discuss your legal options. As all legal claims are subject to time limits, however, you may risk forfeiture of your right to financial compensation if you delay.
