In brief: Pros & cons

Somewhat effective, more natural but less powerful than viagra/cialis, high potential for side effects & interactions.
Can raise bp, cause tremor, nausea or even paranoia. Maoi (monoamine oxidase inhibitor) class of med which interacts with many other rx & otc meds & even foods (tyramine: aged cheeses, red wine, liver) if using, discuss all prescriptions with dr. To avoid possible bad interactions.

In brief: Here are some ...

While the sexual deficit is still marginal - at the early stage of ED, the use of yohimbine may have some effect to improve erection, but always think about its side effects such as anxiety, agitation, GI-upsets, hypertension, tachycardia, etc.
So, beware and I would recommend its use.
