The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers to not buy or use Happy Passengers, a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement.
FDA laboratory analysis confirmed the undeclared presence of sildenafil in the supplement. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra (Pfizer), an FDA-approved drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin; this may result in lowered blood pressure to dangerous levels. Nitrates are often taken by male patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease.
Consumers should stop using this product immediately and discard it, as well as consult a healthcare professional if they have experienced any negative side effects from using the product. Happy Passengers has been sold on various websites and in retail stores.
