The Health Ministry has issued a warning against five types of joint-soothing medication and 12 types of sex stimulants that are being sold illegally online, noting that they can cause negative health effects and possibly even lead to death.

A ministry statement on Tuesday said that the drugs, which are unregistered and have not undergone testing, can cause death through the perforation of the stomach or a heart attack.

The ministry said that the five types of joint pain relievers and 12 sex stimulants are being advertised daily on the Facebook page Krousar Reakreay 168.

It said that the drugs are not registered, and there is no permission to import or advertise them.

“In order to avoid losing money or suffering health issues, people should immediately stop using all these products that have been advertised through the Facebook account Krousar Reakreay 168,” the statement said.

“Users are at risk of dying from perforation of the stomach or by heart attack.”
