Is yohimbe safe?
May 25, 2004
A while back you mentioned yohimbe as a sexual stimulant. I agree! I have noticed that 25-50 mg of Viagra and a supplement called Stamina (Rx or Pro) have a wonderful effect on me: one makes me hard, the other horny. The product has 8 mg of yohimbe extract in it. I take about two a week. I have read warnings about yohimbe (liver, kidney, heart, etc.), even on The Body site. Is the amount I am taking dangerous? My health is good, overall, at this time.

Just keep a close eye on your blood pressure since yohimbe can increase it. Also, it is a stimulant, so do not take it late during the day. No one knows what the interactions are between yohimbe and protease inhibitors.
