While we hear a lot about yohimbe (the herb), what about yohimbine – a drug based on the active chemical in yohimbe?

Research is very mixed, but it may be worth a try. It has affinity for a bunch of receptors that may be involved in sexual activity. However, it has been associated with significant side effects, similar to those found with yohimbe (the herb). When I tried yohimbe, I hated it. It kept me up all night and made me feel loopy.

But you can decide for yourself, as you can ask you doctor to give you a prescription.

Just in case you are interested, it has also been found to increase the volume of semen ejaculated by dogs.
