Man blames drink for non-stop erection

Wednesday Jun 6 10:26 AEST

A New York man has sued the maker of the health drink Boost Plus, saying the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not go away.

Christopher Woods said he bought the beverage, which is made by the Swiss-based Novartis pharmaceutical company, on June 5, 2004, and drank it.

He woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment of the condition, called severe priapism, court papers say.

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

The lawsuit said Woods later had problems that required a hospital visit and penile artery embolisation, to close off blood vessels.

Closing off some blood flow lessens the likelihood of an erection.

Novartis' Boost Plus website 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.

Woods' lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, names Novartis Consumer Health Inc as a defendant.

A spokeswoman for Novartis said the company was aware of the lawsuit but did not comment on pending litigation.
