Side Effects of Yohimbine HCL
Interested in feedback from others who have used Yohimbine HCL. It has been a while since I have used it, but when I did, it was one ingredient of many in a preworkout supplement. After trying to figure out what was causing it, it seemed the Yohimbine HCL was making me nausea.
Is this typical of Yohimbine HCL or less of a problem when using the bulk Yohimbine HCL powder?

Actually I've had products that have had Yohimbe in it and I've also had nausea. I don't recommend anything more than 10mg. That's just me. I don't mind caffiene and whatnot, but those herbal shlt is a little too hardcore for me.

What dose did you supplement with? or what was the product?
In my experience, the first few times you take yohimbine hcl it will hit you much differently than once you have supplemented with it for a few days/week. My point being is that if you dose slightly high the first time you take it, its likeley to cause this. Try a low dose of 2-6 mg and work up from there. it should minimize effects.

I have never had a bad experience with Y-HCl. It helps out with ab fat loss when taken properly and didn't effect my BP or HR significantly.

2.5mg of yohimbine gave u ill sides? it can give some unpleasant sides if dosed a little higher for sure. for example, 15+mg's would give a huge energy boost for a while but then you crash, and get sides like shortness of breathing, nausea, and just a really strange feeling altogether, its not fun. thats just me though, u may be more susceptible at much lower doses. i dont go above 10mg per dose at most(normally only do about 5mg though), and really spread out the doses like 7-8 hours or so.

the only side I have had from it that was undesireable was a walking hard on. Other than that I love the stuff!

First time I ever took yohimbine hcl.. i popped 9mg and felt a little jittery... but that was it
perhaps it was possible that it was yohimbe? which can host many other side's due to its extraction

Yohimbe makes me jittery..almost clen-like.
Elevates my BP everytime.
I'm finding I do NOT like it for pre-WO on lifting days...that's when I feel semi-naseous and short of breath...makes me not want to push hard.
Pre-cardio is an entirely different story. It's great for that and on par with ephedrine IMO.

If it makes you feel that weird lower the dose. No biggie. It has that kick that I need, and if I need more kick then I adjust the dose. Reliability is an amazing thing..

We have a lot of experience with yohimbine-containing supplements (and for those who don't know, yohimbe and yohimbine are very different things).
Even yohimbine HCl, though, can cause unpleasant side effects at low doses for some people. Anxiety, increases in heart rate and blood pressure, etc.
So, we keep yohimbine in our fat loss topicals to avoid systemic delivery, while we substituted alpha-yohimbine for yohimbine HCl in HEAT.

I personally have bad sides from any significant dose of Yohimbe, whether standarized, raw powdered bark, or transdermal.
It elevates my blood pressure and makes me cranky as hell...sometimes it makes me have anxiety/panic problems.
Perhaps its just me, but I've heard this from some users. Hopefully you're not one of them!

Siz, have you tried any of our transdermal products with yohimbine (Lipoderm-Y, Lipoderm-Ultra)?

I did and tolerated them well....until I added too much caffiene to one bottle. I was awake for 20 hours, lol.

Yohimbe made me jittery as hell although the libido boosting effects were more pronounced.
Yohimbine HCL produces no jitters,a much cleaner energy and mood.
BOTH will keep me awake if I dose too late in the day and both elevate my BP fairly consistently.

Yes, but not as big of a boost as yohimbe. Yohimbe had me hanging low...just too cracked out to enjoy it.

Yohimbe HCL made for awesome orgasms and was a key to fat loss
when combined with Norephedrine and caffiene.
downside mania, nervousness,paranoia
I believe there is a receptor saturation point that decreases with age, at least that was my experience. I loved it for about 10 years and then just couldn't handle it anymore around my mid 30's

Starting at 2.5mg today; would it be better to take it with food to minimize the side effects?

Well, tried one cap this morning and everything seemed fine. Then tried another one around lunchtime and that was when it hit me; nausea

It seems to have a longer halflife than E or at least one of it's metabolites does. I've had the same experience..not felt too much then added some more and POW..reached critical mass before I knew it.

Probably not for fatloss. If you run that dose for a week or two, you'll build up a tolerance. I have worked my way up to 10 mg per day over the last 4 weeks...slowly. At this dose there is some fatloss for me.

I can't tolerate much ephedrine either. 25 mg per day is more than enough for me. Although I do ok on caffiene. 200-600 mg per day is usually ok though I fair better on lower amounts.
I should probably not offer advice on stims since I am a statistical anomaly. lol

I'm in too to try it, just dropped 2.5mg YHCL with some broccoli
