The Health Ministry warned the public on Tuesday against two "male products" - V Moroccai gel claimed to increase libido and Tiv'i, a spray for delaying ejaculation. The ministry said its lab found the gel contains sildenafil citrate, the active ingredient in the prescription drug Viagra, and the spray contains the lidocaine painkiller. The products are sold in round-the-clock kiosks and online and are apparently imported from Morocco. The ministry said Monday night that they should not be used and could be dangerous to health.
