    Yohimbine: Watch out!!


    That damn thing gives me the worst headaches after a few weeks of use. I felt like my eyes were 2x bigger. Anyone else got this?

    I have only ever had one bad experience with yohimbine, and it was a pretty bad headache. Every other time I have used it I have been fine. You may want to check your blood pressure out john, I know when I got my headache from yohimbine my BP was high. I backed off for a couple weeks (it was a high stress time anyways) and when i went back to it I was fine.

    Anyone up for a trade? Got 18 packs left I think.

    Yohimbine is a very dangerous supplement. It will raise your blood pressure drastically. I would say to anyone taking it, just be careful. I think the bad outweight the good in this herb IMO.

    I hate Y, I dont put it in my body anymore as it ****s up m blood pressure and makes me feel generally awful. I know some people feel just fine on Y though, unfortunately, I'm just not one who can tolerate it.

    INteresting. I noticed with higher doses I felt kinda sick. ephedrine and Y really effect me badly with headaches and what not.

    Yohimbine will increase your blood pressue though, so that might be what caused that effect for ya. Maybe a two weeks on off approach might work???

    I love yohimbine. I've never had negative sides from it. I once took it for 2+ months straight stacked with other stims. BP was fine. No headaches. Nothing.

    Mail me all your yohimbine!

    Yeah, I dunno. I felt so bad now that I think of it. I was pretty much losing strength from one workout to another, having awful headaches.

    ... And I thought I was overtraining.. So I stopped the stims, etc.. Slept and slept (I even forced myself to sleep pretty much), and still has these. I finally was able to point what it was. Y. Well, I might try it again, but not on my contest prep.

    I get a really cracked out stim feeling from it... worse than eca back in the day... i actually reacted fine to ephedra/ephedrine.
    I also puke every time I have yohimbine and lift weights... so not being able to handle yohimbine/yohimbe really limits the fatburners I can use. I wish supplement companies would use this less since it seems common to have unpleasant sideeffects. I get the side effects with as little as 3mg or even just the yohimbe extract that they use to use.

    I should add that while Y-HCl kills me, I have zero problems with 11-OH-Y or alpha-Y.

    i bought the yohimbine bogo at NP a while back, and tried upwards to 40mg, and noticed absolutely nothing, no stimulant feeling, no increased bp/sweating/etc. No stomach problems.

    However, I tried the pSARM from Legal Gear and on an empty stomach I felt as if I were going to blow my chunks for a good 15 minutes. This happened for 3 days consecutively each morning until I realized it was probably that. Then the threads on AM came in about it.

    40mg?!?! That's ridiculous!! I took 10mg yhcl per dose. You're saying you took 16 caps at once and felt NOTHING?

    Exactly, took a couple swallows (but that's what she said).

    Don't know why, I just don't react to NP's yohimbine. I just report honest supplement feedback .

    Lucky you.

    I gained like 10 lbs of muscle fullness since I stopped. I guess it really depleted my glycogen stores.

    When i took Lipo6/Ephedrine i always always always thought it was the Yohimbine making me sick... come to find out it must have been the mixing of Ephedrine and Yohimbine

    because alone I have dosed up to 15mg in the morning on a empty stomach with no sides... except my heart wanting to pop out of my chest and ***** slap me

    I haven't checked in awhile. Since I'm 20 yrs old, I can't seem to think about checking it lol

    But I am sure my bp was sky high, I lost a lot of strength (I am gaining back quickly now that i stopped) and had terrible headaches. At the end, Advils didn't even do the trick! lol
