My naturopath had me start this a few weeks ago and it is helping. My low blood pressure is quite severe and the Yohimbe seems to help some. Anyone else? I read that it's not for long term use, which is concerning.

@Valentijn has been reporting some success with yohimbe also. Maybe she'll chime in here. You could also search her name and yohimbe to find the threads.

I've been taking a low dose for over two months now, and it's still working great and causing no problems. I take a low dose (100mg twice per day), whereas most OTC doses are 400-500mg. I don't tolerate the high dose, but the low dose works fine, and probably avoids the issues caused by the higher doses. Liver enzymes were tested a couple weeks after starting it, and were in the middle of the normal range.

Valentijn, interesting. Thanks. Im taking Twin Lab's Yohimbe fuel...one pill twice a day. Doc wants me to go up to three pills a day....IT's 400 mg of yohimbe bark extract (standardized for 2% yohimbine (8mg per serving). i had a paradoxical reaction at first, not uncommon for me. Then it started working better. I read on the bottle it said not for long term use. Do u know what concerns there are about this? Sounds like liver issues maybe? Glad it's helping u.
