At least two men had taken the medicine, reports claimed with one being hospitalised and the other experienced priapism which is a serious painful and prolonged erection process and could lead to impotency if not treated.
The product was reportedly sold on the local e-commerce platform as health officials asked the online sellers to remove the products from their listings.
The man who was hospitalised reportedly suffered from pain and itching as he was given medication including antibiotics to reduce the swelling as he developed blisters on his genitals.
