Reviews for Yohimbine

Tuck June 30, 2020

For Sexual Dysfunction, SSRI Induced: “I suffered a prolonged medication induced erection twice in one week. They were both so painful that I had to go to the ER to have my erection surgically drained. An awful and embarrassing experience all together. Especially while 2 pretty nurses checked me in to be seen and giggled. I had recently been prescribed trazadone for sleep. One of the side effects is prolonged erection. After the operations, I had extreme difficulty maintaining an erection. I began trying natural supplements. I started with horny goat weed and had minimal results. Next I tried Yohimbine in powder form and within 30-45 mins, I noticed I was feeling horny and getting an erection. I immediately informed my wife who was all to happy to hear I was feeling normal again. The sex felt great and I climaxed powerfully. I highly recommend trying Yohimbine for ED. It definitely worked for me.”

Yohimbe (yohimbine) for Sexual Dysfunction, SSRI Induced: “As an upcoming psychiatrist and a sufferer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, I studied many ways to counteract the sexual side-effects caused by SSRI. Although this medicine is not commonly prescribed in the US, it's available in my country, and with a three times a day administration, it did increase libido and anorgasmia. Nevertheless, some side-effects are very discomforting, and include diaforesis, anxiety and hypersalivation.”

Yohimbe (yohimbine) for Erectile Dysfunction: “I was foaming out of my mouth, nearly vomiting, anxiety and physical discomfort was at its worst, I could not urinate even though I had to, I severe hunger and I was in this condition for several hours. Needless to say, I did not or could not have sex. Be aware of yohimbe. It was terrifying.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I tried yohimbine for ED and all I got was a rash, could not sleep. I was always wanting water no matter how much I drank. My lips swoll up and was covered up with a itch that drove me crazy. I had a severe break out. I did fine the first week and had a great sex drive and all but It was not worth it. I am still taking allergy med's to clear up the break out a week later.”
