Question asked by


What's up with those rhino pills I see at the gas station?

Is there any scientific evidence that shows rhino sex pills work, and are they safe to use?

If something seems too good to be true, it usually is.

And this rule certainly applies to male sexual enhancement products that are sold over the counter in places like gas stations and corner convenience stores.

In this post, we'll cover rhino male enhancement pills, including what taking rhino pills does to you, rhino pills side effects, and more. 

What are Rhino Sex Pills?

Rhino sex pills are unregulated supplements that have the potential to cause some serious health issues for those who use them.

Rhino pills for men typically advertise fast results and added pleasure in the bedroom, but in reality, they're not always all that they're cracked up to be.

They often contain prescription medications like Viagra and Cialis and some other questionable ingredients.

Some examples of Rhino pills include:

  • Blue Rhino pills
  • Black rhino pills
  • Rhino 69 pills
  • Rhino 25000
  • Platinum Rhino 25000
  • Rhino 7 pills

Do Rhino Pills Work?

Due to the fact that many of these sexual supplements contain prescription-level medications, like sildenafil (Viagra), users are likely to see enhanced erections.

However, the effects will be short-lived, and studies show that the potential interactions with other undisclosed or outright dangerous ingredients can cause serious health problems.

And while these supplements claim to give you stronger and fuller erections, they appear to do so as a result of the effects of some of the ingredients, which can increase penile blood flow by raising the blood pressure, potentially to the detriment of other organs in the body.

The big draw of rhino pills isn't how effective they may or may not be, but rather their affordability and the fact that they can be purchased over the counter.

Safety and Risks of Rhino Pills

Despite the promises these supplements advertise on their packaging, they're known to have some significant side effects and may even lead to death.

The FDA has gone so far as to put out a press release highlighting some of the dangers.

Here's a look at some common side effects and safety risks:

  • Chest pain
  • Severe headaches
  • Prolonged erections that may require hospitalization and surgery to correct
  • An extreme drop in blood pressure
  • Potentially harmful reactions when taken along with other medication
  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • Damage to the heart and other organs from prolonged use

Again, all rhino pills are unregulated, and some have been found to be illegal when tested for prescription-only ingredients.

But those laws are often difficult to enforce. 

It's typically up to local law enforcement to stop the illegal supplements from hitting store shelves, which is easier said than done, considering all of the federal government's other responsibilities.

For more information on what supplements are safe and which ones are not, see the FDA's list of tainted supplement products.

Safe Alternatives to Rhino Pills

There are several FDA-approved prescription medications, such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and Stendra, for erectile dysfunction.

While you need to see a doctor to have these medications prescribed, they are clinically proven, safe, and effective.

In addition, there are legitimate supplements such as VitaFLUX for Men that are safe and effective in increasing erection strength.

VitaFLUX is an over-the-counter supplement that has been clinically studied to improve energy levels, blood circulation, and recovery and helps to increase erectile functioning.

Vitaflux also contains amino acids that have been shown in animal model studies to reduce scarring in the penis associated with Peyronie's disease.


Rhino pills typically have attention-grabbing packaging with bold claims (i.e., Rhino 69 pill) to capture the attention of men who don't want to see a doctor to treat erectile dysfunction issues.

Despite bold claims, even the strongest Rhino pill may only work for a short period of time.

Conversely, in some cases, because of the lack of regulation on the dosage, they may lead to hospitalization and surgery to treat prolonged erections.

With so many safe and proven alternatives to rhino sex pills, why risk it?
