Active ingredient in epimedium is "icariin" which works much the same way as the pde-5 inhibitors (viagra, levitra, (vardenafil) cialis) but much weaker.

Horny Goat Weed: A "horny goat" who smokes "weed" (marijuana)is a combination of words that usually women use to describe their significant other.

My male fiance has had no sexual desire since starting on 10mg of Lexapro and 150mg of wellbutrin (bupropion). Would horny goat weed or tongkat ali help at all?

Reduced sexual desir: I agree with dr. Wartenburg on the need to be careful with herbs here in the us, and speaking with your husband's physician before adding any of these. There are no interactions between horny goat weed, tongkat ali (actually eurycoma longifolia), lexapro, and wellbutrin (bupropion).

Do any of the following products by gnc, - arginmax, or horny goat weed, yohimbe, or panax ginseng- contain amphetamines, and methamphetamine s?

They can't: The answer is categorically "no way, no how! " to paraphrase the wizard of oz. The explanation is simple, anything with amphetamine in it would have to be a prescription drug and could not be purchased over-the-counter. On the other hand, anything containing methamphetamine and sold over-the-counter gets you 10-20 years in every state of the union last time I checked (unlike marijuana). ...Read more

Is any of those sexual stimulants like horny goat weed or extenze good for you. Basically any if the ones you find in gas station?

No, not good for you: Some forms of horny goat weed (one of the many ingredients in extenze) are unsafe in high doses & prolonged use. People have suffered respiratory arrest and muscle spasms. It can also prolong the qt interval in your heart rhythm -- which could lead to heart attack (not a good result). The extenze product has over 20 ingredients, but more is not better.
