I purchased a pack of pills (1250 mg/pill) containing Yohimbe extract along with Tribulus Terrestris; Epimedium Sagittum; Muira Pauma; Panax Ginseng; Catuaba bark; Damiana. The product has a lot of positive comments on the web, so I thought 'what do I got to lose?' Obviously, I wanted to boost my manhood.

I did a 'test drive' by myself. I took 2 pills after dinner, then about an hour later nothing happened. So, I took one more pill (within the recommended dosage, but considering my body weight should have not taken the 3rd pill). Exactly 45 min later, I did get the best erection I had in recent years, however, the side effect was quite terrible. The joy of having a powerful erection waned by the time I tried to go to bed. I started to feel really hot, like my body temperature was couple degrees higher; I was sweating profusely. I felt like having a mild fever. I could not fall asleep for couple hours. This symptom continued the next day/night, even though I stopped taking the pills. At work, I felt irritated and tired. My colleague asked if there was something wrong with me because I had such a serious expression. I usually have a hard time getting up early; usually, no earlier than 8 am. However, for 3 days in a row, I would get get up at 6 am. It was not a good thing, because I really enjoy sleeping. Furthermore, my right arm started to feel numb and tingly. 5 days past and I still feel numb in my hand and arm, though the sweating and hot sensation subsided. I am someone who can't even drink black coffee, so this was just too much of a stimulant for me. I plan to see a doctor for this numbness thing, hope it is temporary...
