In my opinion much depends on the type of aphrodisiac to which you are referring. Dark chocolate is considered an aphrodisiac and according to some medical professionals in small amounts dark chocolate can be beneficial to heart health.
From a web-site I found this: "FDA's findings clash with a 5,000-year tradition of pursuing sexual betterment through use of plants, drugs and magic. Despite FDA's determination that OTC aphrodisiacs are ineffective — and sometimes even dangerous — people continue the optimistic quest for drug-induced sexual success."
The answer you are looking for probably concerns Viagra.
Viagra causes contraction of the blood vessels around the penis, allowing a normal erection in persons unable to have one.
At the same time it causes contraction of a blood vessel leading to the heart. This reduces the potential availability of oxygen to the heart. Therefore prescribing Viagra to a person with angine, or on nitroglycerin, is contraindicated.
