More than a dozen men in Virginia developed dangerously low blood sugar after taking a male sexual enhancement supplement laced with prescription drugs, according to a new report.

The outbreak began in August 2019, when men in Virginia started showing up to emergency rooms with symptoms of confusion, excessive sweating and shaking, along with very low blood sugar, according to the report, published Thursday (June 18) in the journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. None of the men had diabetes, but all reported taking a supplement called V8, which was sold in local convenience stores and claims to enhance male sexual performance.
