Cardiotoxic or Not - Stay Away
by John U
Citation:   John U. "Cardiotoxic or Not - Stay Away: An Experience with Yohimbe (exp91402)". Sep 12, 2018.

400 mg oral Yohimbe


A bit of background info on the psychoactive drugs I've used in the past, most of these multiple times: Cigarettes, Alcohol, Caffeine, Vyvanse, Adderall, Propylhexedrine, Levomethamphetamine, Ephedrine, Pseudoephedrine, DXM, DPH, Cannabis, and Yohimbe.

Whether at dosages of 200mg, 400mg, or 600mg, this 'aphrodisiac' feels like pure cardiac poison; akin to diphenhydramine in its ability to make one feel weaker and more lethargic than a typical depressant. It IS effective at making the penis firmer and thicker, but those effects are offset by the fact that it shrinks my dick overall. Moreover, ANY dose is liable to give me a feeling of mild to extreme doom. What do I mean by that? It's a series of heart palpitations that are more painful and more noticeable than ANY dose of amphetamines I've taken. I'm a runner who runs both short and long distance, and I've got a strong heart with no congenital defects. All in all, I would say that Adderall and Propylhexedrine are FAR more effective as sex-potentiators.
