View Full Version : Man sues after energy drink results in erection

NEW YORK (AP) - A man has sued the maker of the health drink Boost Plus, claiming the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not subside and caused him to be hospitalized.

The lawsuit filed by Christopher Woods of New York said he bought the nutrition beverage made by the pharmaceutical company Novartis AG at a drugstore on June 5, 2004, and drank it.

Woods' court papers say he woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment that day for the condition, called severe priapism.

They say Woods, 29, underwent surgery for implantation of a Winter shunt, which moves blood from one area to another.

The lawsuit, filed late Monday, says Woods later had problems that required a hospital visit and penile artery embolization, a way of closing blood vessels. Closing off some blood flow prevents engorgement and lessens the likelihood of an erection.

Woods' lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, names Novartis Consumer Health Inc. as a defendant. A spokeswoman for the company, Brandi Robinson, said Tuesday the company was aware of the lawsuit but does not comment on pending litigation.

Woods' lawyer did not return telephone calls for comment Tuesday.

Novartis' Boost Plus Web site describes the drink as "a great tasting, high calorie, nutritionally complete oral supplement for people who require extra energy and protein in a limited volume," in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.

My first thought......most men would be over joyed to have his Sargent at full attention 24/7. LOL
IMO....this guy's problem has little if NOTHING to do with drinking an energy drink.

What he forgot to mention is that he used the drink to wash down half a bottle of Cialus.

OK, by day I sell medical supplies and as a hobby I sell the glass bottled soda. I sell tons of the Boost, Ensure, Resource and other "nutritional supplements" to many people and have never heard of this.

Although, 95% of my clients are over the age of 80 and a full day boner problem would be a godsend for them. But still, sounds like this guy had something wrong to begin with, and went after the first thing he could think of as an excuse. I mean, he drank the stuff at night and woke up with wood, seems a bit long (or short) for that to take effect. This guy probably could have eaten a banana the night before and claimed the next morning it must have built itself back up from inside.

BS to me.
