The United States: Public Notification: Herb Viagra Male Sexual Stimulant contains hidden drug ingredient sildenafil

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.
