The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested a product labelled Viagra 007 tablets and found that:

  • The tablets contain an undeclared prescription-only substance.

The supply of Viagra 007 tablets is illegal.

Viagra 007 tablets have not been assessed by the TGA for quality, safety or efficacy as required under Australian legislation, and the place of manufacture is not approved by the TGA.

TGA investigations have shown that a number of people in Australia may have bought the product online.

Information for consumers
