Pygeum was very effective for me, but almost killed me. Read on: the symptom for which I took pygeum, BPH and decreased urinary flow, was effectively treated within a week of taking the herb. I also noticed other pleasant side effects, such as increased libido, increased semen volume, and rapid recovery after sex. Unfortunately, pygeum also was the cause of occasional rapid heart rate that took me...

EFECTO PELIGROSO SOBRE EL CORAZÓN. La principal manifestación de BPH en mi caso, es la micción nocturna, hasta 4 veces sin drogas. Esto mejoró con Serenoa Repens 329 mg solamente, bajando a una o dos. Cambié por Serenoa Repens 160 mg + Pygeum Africanum 50 mg, un comprimido por día, y en 2 días desapareció la micción nocturna totalmente, y también desminuyó la diurna, me pareció demasiado. Pero al...

I've taken 1000mg morning and evening and found it effective. Taking more was counterproductive.

I was taking Saw Palmetto but did not find it very helpful for BPH symptoms. I found Pygeum much better. On long trips I could actually hold my urge to urinate and was no longer getting up in the middle of the night. A side benefit is seminal volume increased slightly and pre-ejaculate increased quit a bit. I have read some negative affects in other reviews about Pygeum causing heart palpitations and I must admit, when I started taking it, it did feel like I just drank a 6-shot latte'. But was that for real or just me convincing myself I felt it. Not sure. I'm still taking Pygeum and it's been 6 months now and my BPH symptoms have improved substantially.

Was taking 320mg of Saw Palmetto and 200mg of Pygeum for 6 months, saw minimal results. I have stopped taking Saw Palmetto and increased Pygeum to 500mg along with 50mg of Zinc and saw very positive results within 5 days. I now sleep through the night and can go 6-8 hours during the day without having to urinate. The "I have to pee NOW" urge has subsided drastically. I have also noticed an increase in my libido and seminal fluid, especially my pre-ejaculate fluid.
