The United States: Public Notification: Rhino 25K 15000 contains hidden drug ingredient sildenafil
 
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Rhino 25K 15000, a product promoted for sexual enhancement. This product was identified by FDA during an examination of international mail shipments.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Rhino 25K 15000 contains sildenafil, the active ingredient in the FDA-approved prescription drug Viagra, used to treat erectile dysfunction. This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. People 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/../ucm586055.htm
