Horny goat weed side effects, safety, risk:
High dosages of horny goat weed may cause side effects in some people, which would include rapid heart beat, restlessness, and insomnia. Do not take horny goat weed herb if you are taking heart medicines, especially medications involved in heart rhythm control. Horny goat weed side effects are dosage dependent, that means the higher the dosage of the horny goat weed pill you take, or the more often you take it, the more likely side effects will occur.
Prescription drug and medication interactions
Q. I would like to know if the following prescription drugs would conflict with the use of horny goat weed: Lysinopril and HCTZ. Both of these drugs are being used to control high blood pressure.
A. Horny goat weed, as with almost all herbs used for sexual enhancement, has not been tested in combination with prescription medications. Therefore the interactions are not well understood. As a general rule, if your doctor approves, you can start with a quarter of a capsule for a few days and gradually increase the dosage if no side effects are noticed and stop the herb if you notice any effects that are not desirable. Each person has a different response to herbal supplements and it is not easy to predict what benefits and side effects a person will experience when taking an herbal preparation or combining it with medications.
Horny goat weed supplement questions:
Q. What is the right dosage of horny goat weed supplement?
A. Each person responds differently, but, as a general rule, one option is to try a horny goat weed supplement extract of 300 mg in the morning every other day for week and then base your future dosage on your initial repsone. The future horny goat weed dosage could be higher or lower depending on how it makes you feel.
Q. Can I take horny goat weed herb the same day as Passion Rx or other sex herbs such as tribulus terrestris?
A. We prefer not mixing horny goat weed herb in the 300 mg dosage with other sexual herbs or products since overstimulation can occur. Thus, take HGW herb by itself and not the same day as other herbs.
Q. How do I know whether horny goat weed pills, Passion Rx, or another sex herb pills will work for me?
A. There is no way to tell which herbal sexual pill or product will work in any particular person except through trial and error. Over the years we have had a lot of feedback from people using sexual enhancing herbal pills, and some people find horny goat weed pill to be effective, most people like Passion Rx with yohimbe and horny goat weed extract, many others like tongkat ali, catuaba, maca, or other herbs. It is impossible to predict which herbal sex pill will work unless you try it for a week or two.
Q. Can I take horny goat weed pill if I am on anti-depressant medications such as Prozac, Zoloft, or Paxil?
A. Prozac and the SSRI drugs such as Paxil and Zoloft interfere with sexual urge and enjoyment due to serotonin influence. Some people who take SSRI drugs wish to enhance their sexuality to make up for the loss from the drugs and hence explore herbal options such as horny goat weed extract and Passion Rx. However, it is difficult to predict a response when drugs and herbs are combined, and hence to be on the safe side, we suggest not taken the herbs and the medicines on the same day.
Q. Can horny goat weed extract and fish oil supplements be taken on the same day?
A. Yes, we don't see any conflict with these two supplements used the same day.
Q. I have just bought horny goat weed extract, maca extract, and tongkat ali extract. I want to try them together, is that safe?
A. We suggest first learning how each herb works for you by itself, and this usually takes a few days. Once you have a good understanding on horny goat weed extract is working for you, and how your body feels on maca or tongkat ali, then you will have a better understaning on the combinations. Always use a smaller amount of each herb when combining.
Q. Can this herbal product be taken immediately before breakfast or does one need to wait a half hour after taking it before eating?
A. The longer it stays in the stomach without food, more of the horny goat weed herb is likely to be absorbed, but it is a potent pill to start with, therefore not all of it needs to be absorbed to work. Hence, once you take the horny goat weed capsule in the morning, about a half hour wait works well for many people and gives time for most of the herb to be absorbed.
Q. A question before i buy horny goat weed supplement. Can horny goat weed extract be taken with Cialis, Viagra or Levitra impotence drugs at the same time. I have read up on HGW herb and am contemplating on trying it out but am afraid of bad side effects happening.
A. We prefer horny goat weed extract and other sexual improving herbs not be taken the same day as Cialis or other erectile dysfunction drugs. Often it takes a few days for aphrodisiac herbs to have their full benefits. Therefore, horny goat weed herb can be taken three or four days, and then Cialis, Viagra, or Levitra can be taken on the day of activity but the horny goat weed can be skipped the day the impotence drugs are taken. Each person is different in their response and hence have approval by your doctor.
Q. I purchased horny goat weed herb and maca herb. Is it okay to take the horny goat weed with maca herb?
A. It may be if the dosages are low. We suggest you first try them separately for a week and, if combined, take half the dosage of each.
Q. I have a question about the icarin extract. I have seen companies sell a 10 percent, 20 percent, 30, 40, 50, and even higher percent icarin. What is the ideal percentage of HGW extract?
A.This is a good question and we don't have a good answer yet. Studies comparing the various icariin extracts have not been done. A horny goat weed product is often listed on the certificate of analysis as having a total icariins content and then the percentage of icariin itself is listed.
Q. I have recently purchased some supplements from your website (Horny goat Weed, Maca, Tribulus and Catuaba). I read on a website that if you take these supplement?s any more than once a week then tolerance will kick in and stop them from working. On your labels it says take them a few times a week. Other internet sites say 5 days on 2 days off. Could you please shed just a little bit off light on this in your opinion? I just want to know I am taking these properly. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
A. There is not enough long term human research to know the benefits and risks of taking these herbs for prolonged periods, nor to know what the appropriate dosage is and how to combine them with each other, the ideal number of days to take a week, and how they interact with each other. Therefore, the most practical advice at this time is to take them the least amount of days and in the lowest dosage that provides the benefits that are sought. This would vary among individuals based on their sensitivity and tolerance, other supplements used, age, sex, use of medications, use of coffee or alcohol, overall health condition, genetics, etc. As you can see no simple answers can be given that would apply to everyone.
A phosphodiesterase (PDE) is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphodiester bonds. There are 11 families of phosphodiesterases, namely PDE1 to PDE11, the most well known by the public being PDE-5. Phosphodiesterases are responsible for the degradation of the cyclic nucleotides cAMP and cGMP. They are important regulators of signal transduction mediated by these molecules.
Phosphodiesterase inhibitors and genital blood flow
The oral PDE5 phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors have become quite popular for improving genital blood flow. Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors enhance cavernosal smooth muscle relaxation, vasodilatation and penile erection. However, phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors are not always effective. Decreased efficacy, cost, incorrect administration, lack of sexual stimulation, vascular risk factors associated with ED and vascular or neurogenic diseases are causes of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor failure.
