Forskolin Side Effect Question
Hello! I'm new to the forum, but have gotten great advice from reading the posts of others.
I am wondering if I should decrease the dosage of Forskolin I'm taking and if anyone else has dealt with a feeling of breathlessness/increased heart rate from taking Forskolin. Sometimes it just seems like I need to lay down from being out of breath when I take it, but it wears off after a few hours, then normal life resumes.
The doasge says "Standardized to 20% Forskolin, 50mg, 1 capsule @250mg.
What should I do? I really like the benefit it gave before with the fat loss, but I stopped taking it because I kept feeling out of breath and had a very high heart rate.

If I was feeling like that from a dietary supplement that I didn't have to take, I'd freakin stop lol.Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Representative

Personally never heard of side effects like that from forskolin. Are you taking it with anything else?
Your side effects sound like a stimulant related effect. Are you using a thermogenic or other stimulant-based product with the forskolin?

I get some supremely unearthly devil-hell smelling farts when I take forskolin at 75mg per day but thats it.
Most people will recommend you get a forskolin supplement standardized to a 95% extract, may be something you want to look in to.

I would also say the therm was most likely culprit.... however forskolin can elevate heart rate and cause light headedness, palpitations, etc. While rare, it can happen.

Please list all medications you are taking as well. Like others have said, I highly doubt itís the forskolin. Stop the thermo and forskolin now. If symptoms go away, introduce forskolin only.

I agree that most people don't have any issues with forskolin and it could be something else, but forskolin CAN increase heart rate. It's main mode of action is to increase cAMP which is a signaling molecule that is directly implicated in the modulation of heart rate...namely it will increase contractor force and rate from what I understand.
Other PDE inhibitors may make this worse by increasing cAMP through forskolin and then something like Viagra reducing the ability to break down camp.
It may be another supplement, a combination if things, or something that should be checked out by a doctor.
Increased heart rate and breathlessness to the point you have to pay down makes me agree with others that it is worth stopping all unnecessary supplements and reintroducing things one at a time to diagnose at the very least. A check up may also be in order.

I've had bad experiences with Forskolin, but they are not exactly like what you describe. My guess is that I have an allergic reaction, which has caused me to break out in very small hives and to feel fluish. That flu-like feeling is really dose-dependent, too. If I take a little, I feel a little crappy, and if I take a lot, I feel lousy all day.
