How safe are yohimbe supplements?

ANSWER

Yohimbe may affect medications you're taking and other supplements. It can make you bleed easier if you're taking a blood thinner, like warfarin (Coumadin). You shouldn't use yohimbe if you're taking medicine for diabetes, or if you have kidney, liver, or heart problems. Avoid it if you have seizures or a mental illness, including ADHD.
