What is yohimbine used for?
Dilating the pupils of the eye or treating erectile dysfunction due to diabetes, blood vessel problems, or psychological reasons. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Yohimbine is an alpha-blocker. It works by increasing certain chemicals in the body, which dilate the pupils of the eye. It also dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow in the penis, which helps to improve erectile function.
Do NOT use yohimbine if:
you are allergic to any ingredient in yohimbine
if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
you have heart problems, kidney problems, ulcers of the stomach or intestines, or a history of mental or mood disorders
you are taking medicines for mental or mood problems (eg, antidepressants, tranquilizers)
Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
