The United States: Public Notification: Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee contains hidden drug ingredient desmethyl carbodenafil
 
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee, a product promoted and sold on various websites and in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee contains desmethyl carbodenafil. Desmethyl carbodenafil is structurally similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, an FDA-approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction (ED). This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/../ucm518588.htm

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product.
