Yohimbine Dosage - How Much Should I Take?

Taking the correct yohimbine dosage is important. This will ensure that it is effective and that you won't experience much side effects.

But I need to make something very clear. Yohimbine is not the same as taking the bark extract yohimbe. Many people confuse the two names. Here are the facts.

The herb yohimbe contains in it the active ingredient yohimbine. Yohimbine is the chemical that helps treat erectile dysfunction and to boost libido. It is a prescription medication sold in Canada and the United States.

Typically, when you buy yohimbe extract, it contains around 2% of yohimbine. Always buy standardized extract so that you know exact how much yohimbine you are getting in each pill.

Dosage of Yohimbine

We know the recommended dosage of yohimbine because it is a prescription drug that has go through many research studies. The typical dosage of the ingredient yohimbine used in research study is between 15 to 30 mg once a day.

So if a product comes as a capsule of 451 mg of yohimbe bark, look at the standardize amount of yohimbine inside. Continuing with this example, it states that it has 2% yohimbine alkaloid = 9 mg. That means each capsule gives you 9 mg of yohimbine.

451 mg of yohimbe bark
standardized to 2% yohimbine (9 mg)
Amount of yohimbine (mg)
1 capsule 9
2 capsules 18
3 capsules 27

So a safe dosage, based on clinical research studies done on yohimbine would be to take 1 to 3 capsules once daily.

Always start with the lowest dose possible. It the able pill was in a tablet format, you can even cut the tablet in half and take 4.5 mg of yohimbine to start. For best effect, take the pill at least 1 hour prior to sexual activity.

Consult with your healthcare provider if you need more information. Also see our full review on Yohimbe.
