Effective in a man and woman
November 25 2016
Review, for a male and female
After years of research, renowned doctor Ray Sahelian, M.D., best selling author of Natural Sex Boosters book, has formulated a sexual enhancement product that has a significant sexual enhancement effect on men and women.
Benefits, how it helps
Passion Rx improves genital sensation, sexual stamina; increases sexual drive or libido; promotes sexual thoughts; and improves blood flow, leading to a more engorged penis. Both men and women notice better orgasms and climaxes. It supports and maintains many aspects of the human sexual experience. Passion Rx has been available to the consumer since 2004, and has now become one of the bestselling herbal sexual improvement products on the market.
Ingredients in Passion Rx:
Some of the potent herbal extracts and ingredients include ashwagandha, catuaba, cnidium, herba cistanches, horny goat weed, maca, muira puama, passion flower, LJ100, suma extract, tongkat ali, yohimbe bark extract, berberine extract, and Tribulus Terrestris Extract.
You can try the herbal formula by itself or some people like to try individual sex boosting herbs alone.
Buy Passion Rx Yohimbe at Physician Formulas website. It not only helps those who have low sex drive or the ability to perform, but it also enhances sexual enjoyment in those who have a normal libido.
Additional ingredients in this formula
Tongkat Ali is a small tree found in the jungles throughout Malaysia and Southeat Asia. Studies show that Tongkat Ali produces a dose-dependent increase in mounting frequency of treated animals and could be of help in treating Male Impotence.
Tribulus, also called “puncture vine,” is a plant long used around the world for the treatment of various ailments. Tribulus may work by relaxing smooth muscles and increasing blood flow into the corpus cavernosa. The relaxant effect observed is probably due to the increase in the release of nitric oxide from the endothelium and nerve endings.
Yohimbe is the name of the bark of a tall evergreen tree in western Africa known as Pausinystalia yohimbe. Yohimbe acts through the nervous system to increase blood flow to the genital region through antagonism of alpha 2-adrenoceptors. The amount of yohimbe in this product has been intentionally kept low to minimize any potential side effects (about half or a third of other products on the market). Individuals with heart conditions, a tendency for heart irregularities, or high blood pressure should consult their physician who may recommend that dosage be kept to one capsule only. Yohimbe should be used carefully in those who take anti-depressants (particularly MAO inhibitors), stimulant drugs, or cardiac drugs.
Amounts of the ingredients
Q. How many milligrams of yohimbine alkaloids are in the formula?
A. Passion Rx is a proprietary blend. Dr. Sahelian formulated this product. Since he is very well known as an expert formulator, many companies try to copy his formulas and thus the dosages are in a form of a proprietary blend which is allowed by the FDA.
Suggested use, how to take, how often:
Passion Rx can be used in a low dose (this is the better option), or it can be used in a higher dose for a quicker effect. Herbs work slower than drugs. Passion Rx is designed to work slower with a minimum of side effects as opposed to drugs that work quick but have serious consequences. Most users feel aroused and ready for action by the second or third day, or even a week or two for the maximum effects to be noticed.
Use by seniors, the elderly
We prefer those over the age of 70 not take Passion Rx or other sexual herbs since they have a tendency to stimulate heart contraction and cause rapid heart beat. If you are over the age of 70 and are healthy and your doctor approves, you may use half of the recommended dosage and only take the herbs every other day.
Birth control pills
I just ordered Passion Rx, but wanted to make sure there is no problem taking it while on the birth control pill Tri-cyclen Lo.
Passion Rx has been sold since 2004 and we have not had any problems reported to us from women who are on birth control pills or Tri-Cyclen Lo.
Cardiovascular issues, heart problems or medicines
We do not advise those with heart or blood pressure problems to take herbal sex enhancers since most of them make the heart beat faster and we try to avoid any potential of side effects if we can. Do not take Passion Rx if you have moderate or severe hypertension. Do not take Passion Rx if you have a heart condition or taking heart pills.
Dietary supplements used in combination
Can a person take vitamin C, vitamin E, fish oil, magnesium, calcium, glucosamine and chondroitin the same time.
The vitamins, minerals and nutrients you mention are generally safe supplements and this sex booster can be taken the same day but your doctor has to make the final decision.
High blood pressure, hypertension, blood pressure medications
The one herb in Passion Rx that may temporarily effect blood pressure is yohimbe. The effects of yohimbe last only a few hours, and we purposely put a third or a quarter of the yohimbe bark present in other products in order to minimize any potential side effects, yet still get some of the benefits from it. Clinically we have not found any significant elevation of blood pressure with with one capsule. We have not tested 2 or 3 capsules, but the majority of people notice the beneficial effects of with one capsule or even half. Even if this small amount of yohimbe influences blood pressure, the effects would be minimal and only last a few hours. To be extra cautious, those with hypertension could take the slow libido approach and use one-half of a capsule over a period of three or four days, and do so under medical supervision. We have many users of Passion Rx who are on different medicines including diuretics, beta blockers, and ACE inhibitors. Under medical supervision, hypertensives are able to use Passion Rx in low doses without difficulty.
I am now taking Amlodipine for high blood pressure, is it safe to use Passion Rx and this medication and in cases of hypertension?
Passion Rx is safe for those with mild high blood pressure who are not taking medications, but we do not have feedback regarding the combination of Passion Rx with various blood pressure medications. If your doctor approves, we suggest using only a third of a capsule 2 days on, one day off. This will take much longer to work but could reduce the side effect profile.
Menopause, hot flashes
Will this product help those in menopause treat hot flashes?
We do not think it is helpful to treat hot flashes.
I am a 59 yr old lady with multiple sclerosis. Will Passion Rx help me out?
We are not in a position to make specific recommendations since that is the role of your physician. All we can say is that many doctors recommend it to their patients with various conditions, but use a low dose of half of a capsule two days on, two days off. This approach takes longer to work but minimizes any side effects or interactions with medicines or various medical conditions.
Parkinson’s disease and mucuna herb
I have Parkinson’s disease and I am taking mucuna pruriens. I also take Cialis occasionally. None of those have caused any problems. My doctor knows nothing about natural medicine.
We suggest first learning how the formula works for you by itself without interference from other supplements or medicines. We don’t suggest combining Passion Rx the same day as Cialis, Viagra, or Levitra. It may be possible to combine lower dosages of the mucuna and the formula.
Pregnancy and nursing mothers
I am a nursing mother. Is it safe for me to take this product?
We don’t have any studies to indicate whether it is safe or unsafe. This is a good question and we don’t have an answer at this time.
Prostate problems and medications used for PBH
Passion Rx can be used by those with mild BPH, but those with severe BPH should probably avoid the use.
I take Hytrin and Flowmax for an enlarged prostate and want to know if Passion RX is OK to take with these drugs.
It would not be possible to give a blanket statement that any product for sexual enhancement, whether pharmaceutical or herbal is completely safe, or has no interactions with medicines. They all carry a risk. Much of this risk is dose dependent, that is, the higher the dose of the sexual enhancement product, the higher the risk for side effects. We do not suspect the herbs in Passion Rx would interfere with Hytrin and Flomax but we cannot be certain about this. We have not come across side effects of any significance when a very low dose approach is used.
Does this product increase or decrease the risk for prostate cancer?
This is difficult to say since some herbs may help the prostate gland while little human research is available with most of the herbs in terms of their influence on prostate health. We suspect it could be helpful in reducing the risk, but we are not sure.
SSRI medications, prescription antidepressants
You advise “Do not take Passion Rx the same day with Prozac or other antidepressants. Does the advice above (i.e., not to co-mix with anti-depressants), also apply to 5-HTP or tryptophan?
Many pharmaceutical antidepressants influence serotonin levels which dampen sex drive. 5-HTP converts into serotonin and reduces sexual enjoyment and libido, hence it is counterproductive to take a libido booster such as Passion Rx while dampening the effects with 5-HTP or a SSRI drug. Other natural antidepressants, such as SAM-e can have a very stimulating effect on energy and, if combined with Passion Rx, could cause insomnia and too much energy. A small amount of SAM-e, such as half a tablet of 200 mg, could be taken on the off days when not using the aphrodisiac formula. Passion Rx is normally only used 2 or 3 days a week which allows other herbs or supplements to be taken on the off days. Another option is St. John’s wort which does not inhibit sexuality. Sometimes the best way to find out is to use low dosages and learn by trial and error with medical guidance.
Testosterone level influence
I am taking 500 mg /day of Niacin (nichotinic acid type). I am trying to increase my testosterone level. Does Passion-Rx Yohimbe help to achieve this?
We have not done blood studies to determine whether this herbal male enhancement product increases levels of testosterone but the vast majority of users notice enhancement of sexuality. It is a good idea to begin with low dosages when combining medications or supplements.
Weight loss pills and issues
I am a first time viewer of your website and have learned quite a lot from reading about some of your products. I would like to start using Passion Rx, but am concerned about taking this with other products for weight loss called Lipo 6 or Hydroxycut. I am an avid exercise enthusiast who wants to shed off excess fat; this is why I am going to take either Lipo 6 or Hydroxycut, but I also want to spruce up my libido with Passion Rx. Can I take both products at the same time?
We don’t suggest using Lipo 6 or Hydroxycut together with Passion Rx. They are potent and side effects could occur including restlessness, high body temperature, increased pulse rate, insomnia, etc. The libido formula is potent and we suggest using it by itself, and you may even wish to take half a capsule every other day and have a gradual improvement in sexuality over a period of a week with fewer side effects.
A friend of mine loves Passion Rx product but I want to know if it is okay to take it daily and if it can cause weight loss or gain.
There are several options: every other day, every third day, 2 days on then 2 or more days off. It need not be taken daily, in fact it works better when you take days off. It does not seem to affect weight gain or loss.
I am a female who started taking Passion Rx with Yohimbe and was beginning to enjoy the effects of it. My doctor just prescribed Wellbutrin to me. I noticed that you recommend not taking it on the same day you take an anti-depressant. Given anti-depressants are taken daily. Can you let me know if there is any problem with taking both?
Some people have no problems taking both, but we try to be cautious in our recommendations since there are occasions where some individuals are not able to tolerate combinations. If your doctor approves you can use half a capsule just to make sure untoward reactions do not occur.
Passion Rx testimonials
I am 48 and have noticed a decline in sexual arousal and performance over the past few years. I had never taken natural herbal sexual enhancers before and I was quite skeptical. But a friend of mine who had been a Passion Rx user recommended it to me. I took a Passion Rx capsule 2 days in a row and towards the end of the second day I started to notice that I was having more frequent sexual thoughts. I did not take a capsule the third day and the sexual urge was still growing and it seemed my sensation was enhanced. I took one capsule again before breakfast on the fourth day and towards mid to late afternoon that’s when I realized that my sexual passion had returned full force. That evening my erection was stronger and more persistent than I can remember in several years. I only took half a capsule on the fifth day because I did not want to be even more aroused that I was. The sexual enhancement persisted two more days even though I did not take any further pills.
A. Most people notice the benefits on the third or fourth day. Some sooner, others may take a few more days to realize the full sexual benefits. Thanks for the feedback.
I have been skeptical of herbal formulas for sexual pleasure but my cousin convinced me that Passion Rx was worthwhile. The first day I noticed more energy and alertness with better vision and more sexual thoughts, but it was the afternoon of the second day when I realized I was getting turned on easily and couldn’t keep thinking about being intimate with someone. That evening I had an amazing sexual relation with my husband and it seemed when he touched me in private parts the feeling was more sensitive than I remember in more than 5 years. I didn’t take Passion Rx the next day and still felt aroused and even the day after. It seems I only need to take Passion Rx 2 days a week and that carries more for several days afterwards. It’s a bargain.
It was delivered to me in India. I am quite happy with this product and must tell you its quite effective. Do you suggest any other supplement to go with it to make more effective in terms of frequency and lasting of erection?
Some people may find additional benefit from fish oil capsules and Prostate Power Rx used on the days when the Passion Rx is not being used.
I want to tell you a testimonial that Passion Rx has worked for me. Finally, a product that does what it says it can. I have tried other similar products that were suppose to address erection problems. I have tried Passion Rx, and in two weeks, I have experienced positive results. Thank you for your product.
I have been taking Passion Rx for a little over a year and have been very satisfied with the results. I take it on an every other day schedule and take Prostate Power Rx on off’ days. This has worked well for me in the past. However, the last couple of times that I was intimate I was unable to sustain an erection. I’m just wondering if you have any suggestions?
Perhaps tolerance has developed. Take one month off completely from all sexual herbs and try again, and take at least a week off each month. You may also consider another version of Passion Rx, with yohimbe. Tolerance can develop to some sexual herbs.
I found your excellent website by chance and as a matter of fact have been a regular visitor for the very valuable information it offers. I also started ordering from Physician Formulas shortly after and have been very satisfied with the quality of the products. I have tried your Passion Rx without Yohimbe, and it worked perfectly since the first pill. However, it seems that I have probably developed some kind of tolerance for it, since it stopped working for me after going through half a bottle (I took 1 pill every other day as prescribed). Thank you very much again for the excellent products and information, and my best wishes for a prosperous and ever growing business.
Thank you. We have found with Passion Rx, and most herbs used for sexual improvement purposes, that they work better when a person takes a break.
Best way to take this sexual herbal pill, on empty stomach
Q. I bought Passion Rx with Yohimbe recently and have been taking 1 tablet each morning on an empty stomach a few minutes before breakfast and noticed no affect whatsoever. I decided to take 2 tablets and again no reaction. I am a 46 year old male in good shape and exercise every day. I was wanting a little “kick” from this product. I am rather disappointed with this product as I really believed in it after reading various Q and A’s on your website. Your marketing of Passion Rx also seems positive, so you can understand that I feel rather let down. (Sorry about the pun!) Can you offer any comment?
A. Please follow these suggestions and let us know in 2 weeks:
Take 3 days off from all supplements, including multivits, hopefully you are not on any prescription medications
Take a Passion Rx capsule at least 40 minutes, maybe an hour, before breakfast, empty the contents in a glass of water with a tiny amount of alcohol.
avoid coffee, or just drink decaf
use the Passion Rx 2 days on, 2 days off, taking days off makes the passion rx works better
you may use one or two fish oil capsules a day
eat cold water fish such as salmon or halibut at least 2 times a week
Q. Response – Taking it on an empty stomach an hour before breakfast without other supplements seems to have made the difference, I noticed more sensation the first day and great erection and libido and sensation the second day. Wow it really works now.
Q. I needed help in the erectile dysfunction department and I bought a book ‘ Natural Sex Boosters ‘ and at the same time I got Passion Rx Yohimbe and Tongkat Ali. I tried Viagra and Cialis and they were horrible. I just wondered if you might have any suggestions. I am 73 and in good health and I have never taken any medications.
A. The way these products are used make a huge difference in how they work. The main points about Passion Rx and sexual herbs are to take them on an empty stomach in the morning and no more than 2 days in a row. Also, Passion Rx and tongkat ali should not be used the same day. Taking days off actually makes the herbs work better. The body gets used to it if taken all the time. Herbs are different than drugs in that they are most effective on the second day or third day, not the very first evening of taking it. We suggest taking at least 4 days off from these herbs and then retrying as suggested.
Mixing with protein shake
Q. I was wondering if the capsules can be opened and mixed with a protein or juice shake. Will this damage the ingredients before entering the body?
A. Passion Rx works better when used on an empty stomach first thing in the morning at least 30 minutes before breakfast taken with water or juice.
Does Passion Rx use lead to penis enlargement?
See penis enlargement for more information.
Q. I am writing because I so respect your expertise, experience, judgment and intuition about things. In the past I have taken Passion Power. Last spring I was diagnosed with prostate cancer (slow-growing, early-stage, and localized), for which I was just treated with brachytherapy, i.e. implantation of radioactive seeds, which will be active in me for the next six months. My question is whether I could take Passion Power during this period when I am receiving this radiation internally. I am feeling that the Passion Power may hep restore my sexual functioning. On the other hand, I know that there’s a controversy in the literature about whether one should take anti-oxidants during radiation therapy, on the grounds that they may protect cancer cells against the destructive effects of radiation,so my dcotor told me to take as supplements just a multi-vitamin pill that covers the recommended daily allowance, but not any higher doses of anti-oxidants. In any case, I would appreciate any thoughts you have about the advisability of taking Passion Power capsules, since I would if I could. If you have recommendations for any bother products that bear on my condition, please let me know.
A. If your doctor agrees, the use of Passion Rx 2 days a week or alternatively Prostate Power Rx 2 days a week or a combination of the two not more than 2 or 3 days a week may be acceptable.
Q. Are there any issues taking Passion Rx after a vasectomy? Seems like it would be sending your body mixed signals.
A. We are not aware of any problems with the use of Passion Rx after a vasectomy. A vasectomy is for the purpose of preventing pregnancy, and not to inhibit sexual drive or intimacy.
Q. I would like to know if Passion Rx helps in getting a better erection?
A. Many people find regular use leads to a better erection. Most often the benefits are seen not within an hour such as Viagra, but after a few days of use.
Q. If one is currently doing some Androgel therapy, should one terminate the Androgel therapy while trying Passion Rx? I did ask my doctor about herbal supplements such as Passion Rx but he said he was not in a position to make
a recommendation re. herbs and herbal treatment at the same time with the Androgel.
A. Passion Rx is potent, therefore we prefer not using any hormones or strong supplements the same day as Passion Rx use. In the long run, most people only need to take Passion Rx 2 or 3 days a week, hence the other hormones and supplements can be taken during the days the Passion Rx is not being used. Unless the Androgel is absolutely necessary, it is best to stay off it during the Passion Rx use. This may be a good thing, too, since sometimes hormones are taken in a higher dose than necessary or more often than they need to.
Q. I have been using ViaGrowth III for the past 2 months and I haven’t seen any improvement in my erection. I feel tempted by Passion RX. I would like to know how does Passion RX ingredients compare with those of ViaGrowth III and if Passion RX can do a better job.
A. We are not familiar with ViaGrowth III product and since we have not done any testing side by side with this product, we can’t say how Passion Rx compares to it. However, we can say that Passion Rx with yohimbe is our most re-ordered libido product.
Q. I’m interested in trying Passion RX both with and without Yohimbe, so I bought each of them them separately. How much Yohimbe would be similar to the dose that is in Passion RX, so I can see how I do on the combination therapy? I bought the brand of Yohimbe that is on the web site this site refers to.
A. The amount of yohimbe in Passion Rx with yohimbe is a proprietary secret. However, we do not suggest taking any additional yohimbe on the day that you take a Passion Rx with yohimbe capsule. As to the stand alone yohimbe product, we would suggest at first using only a third of a pill since high doses can cause side effects. Always have at least 2 days a week where you are not taking any of these products.
Q. I am planning to try Passion Rx product, but I have an important question to ask before I begin: I understand that the Yohimbe ingredient in Passion Rx has a time-limited effect in the body and therefore would be of limited effectiveness for someone who takes Passion Rx in the morning and then has sex in the evening. Furthermore, Passion Rx product appears to have a couple of other ingredients (such as Horny Goat Weed) which have both a longer term effect of multiple days PLUS a powerful short term effect of several hours. So if I understand this correctly, the best effect would be if one took the Passion Rx approximately 90 minutes before sex. But how does this fit with the idea of taking a regular dose every morning (with occasional days off)? Do you have any experience with this question? For example, if I typically have sex 1 – 2 times per week, then could I: (a) Take the Passion Rx regularly and then take an extra dose a little while before having sex? or (b) Take the Passion Rx regularly and then take an additional short-acting dose of Horney Goat Weed plus Yohimbe (small dose) a little while before sex?
A. You ask good questions. Surprisingly, and somehow, the combination of herbs in Passion Rx with yohimbe allows it to be taken in the morning, but the effects last all day and into the next day. The second dose the following day enhances the overall sexual enhancement in case the dose the first day was not enough. Therefore, one need not take an additional Passion Rx capsule before sexual intimacy. If you plan to have sex on Saturday, you could take a Passion Rx pill on Friday morning and then another one of Saturday morning. Even if you skip on Sunday, you will still notice the aftereffects of sexual enhancement.
Q. Is it safe to take dhea on days you are not taking Passion Rx.
A. DHEA has a tendency to speed heart rate and may cause heart palpitations in high doses. Sexual herbs also have the potential to speed hear rate, and in high doses may also cause palpitations. Therefore, it is preferable to keep the dhea doses very low, such as 1 to 3 mg, and only if not taking Passion Rx that day and also if you have no heart problems.
Q. We have had two male patients, including my naturopathic colleague, report heightened breast sensitivity while using Passion Rx. It has been very uncomfortable for both men, and symptoms ameliorated when discontinuing the use of Passion RX. I have wondered whether herbs that stimulate both male and female sexuality in Passion RX may in fact be promoting estrogen in the male. I will add that both of these men have tested on the lower side of normal testosterone levels and are in their mid-40s.
A. Passion Rx has more than a dozen herbs and it is very difficult to know which of these herbs, or the combinations, enhance sensitivity. Actually, increased genital sensation is one of the positive attributes of Passion Rx. Users love the increased pleasure from the genital sensitivity. We consider breast sensitivity as part of the overall sexual enjoyment since breasts and nipples are part of the sexual experience. However, the sensitivity of the nipples can be reduced by reducing the dosage of the Passion Rx or taking it less frequently. We are not sure which hormones or other factors are being enhanced or released by the use of Passion Rx.
Q. I am a 59 year old male and am taking the Passion Rx with yohimbe with good results. However, my blood pressure is elevated slightly. In the past it has been perfect. Can the passion rx cause a person’s blood pressure to elevate? Maybe this is just coincidence.
A. Yes, it is possible that Passion Rx with yohimbe could elevate blood pressure. However, many people find that using one capsule two or three times a week is quite adequate, hence it does not have to be taken daily. In fact, most people find that 2 times a week is sufficient.
Q. As a loyal customer, I periodically use the Passion Rx without Yohimbe formula a couple of times a week (1 cap every couple of days or so – approximately every other month. What I am experiencing is a higher level of libido and a shorter period of performance time. It’s like the libido assumes control and then in a very short period thereafter I experience pre-mature ejaculation. I am not asking for your advice but I am wondering if there is a natural product available that would/could increase erectile staying power. At 63 years young, married 44yrs, and a physically fit Tai Chi Instructor … this shouldn’t be happening. What is available that might be of help in maintaining an erection for more than 2 -3 minutes?
A. It’s interesting that different people respond differently to herbal products, particularly those involved with sexual improvement. Other options to consider include Passion Rx with yohimbe, Prostate Power Rx, catuaba, tribulus terrestris, and CDP-choline. It’s impossible to foretell which one will work best for you in terms of erectile function.
Q. i have been using Passion Rx with yohimbe product and got good result for some time. i find my pressure has gone up and i am scary to use the product. Do suggest any other supplement to overcome the problem. My age is 45 and my problem is some times the sex is very very good but sometimes it fails and i feel bad.
A. We suggest opening the capsule and using 3/4 of the amount, and only 2 or 3 days a week, not every day. The blood pressure increase depends on the dose, so the less you take the less the rise in pressure. Please let us know how this works. We also have Prostate Power Rx which works well and Passion Rx without yohimbe.
Q. I’m 76. Viagra no longer works for me. I take the following prescriptions: Lisinopril, 10mg, 2X daily, Metoprolol, 50mg, 1X daily, Terazosin, 10mg, 1X daily, Proscar, 5mg, 1X daily, Lovastatin, 40mg, 1X daily. Can I safely take Passion Rx? If your response is to talk to my doctor about it, what do I tell him?
A. We can’t recommend Passion Rx to those who are taking several medications for cardiovascular conditions since herbal sex products can raise blood pressure and increase heart rate.
Testosterone effect or influence, prostate cancer
Q. I am very interested in using Passion Rx to boost a sagging sexual desire, but my doctor has concerns about it possibly increasing testosterone. I have been treated by external radiation for early prostate cancer. During the next nine months, until we are certain that it is gone, testosterone is not good for me since it aids prostate cancer growth. So far my searches do not indicate that any of the herbs create additional testosterone.
A. Passion Rx is a blend of several herbs in low dosages. We have not done any studies with blood work to determine what kind of hormonal influence, or testosterone influence, this product has when used daily. However, Passion Rx need not be used daily, even 2 days a week is enough. We can’t say one way or the other how Passion Rx influences prostate health. We don’t suspect occasional use has any effect on the prostate but we can’t say 100 percent with certainty.
Birth control pills, BCP
Q. Will passion Rx decrease the effects of birth control pills? I am taking ortho-tri cyclen.
A. We have not tested Passion Rx together with birth control pills so we don’t exactly know what would happen. Our best guess is that Passion Rx will not interfere with the effect of the birth control pill.
Q. How much yohimbine does Passion Rx with yohimbe contain?
A. Passion Rx with yohimbe is a proprietary blend and the FDA allows companies not to have to list the amounts and percentages as a way of indirect patent protection so that other companies do not copy and sell the same product.
Q. I am 60 years old and am currently on high blood pressure medicine and gabapentin for restless leg syndrome, nueropathy of some sort. My question is this, can i take a third of a pill [passion x] once or twice a week. I know this is probably a difficult question, but i ask it anyway. I am not over weight, exercise regularly and in not bad health.
Thanks for asking, but it is a difficult answer since if we say yes we could be put in a position of responsibility. We can only refer you to your doctor who needs to make these decisions for you and take responsibility.
Q. My wife is 40 years old with two young children (3 and 5ys). I am 60 yrs. She has a low interest in sex and I have a strong desire. But when she participates ( 2-3 X month) she has one or two orgasms per night. But she never takes the initiative and claims she is not very interested. . She wants to increase her sexual appetite. And arousal. And has agreed to take a herbal formulation that does not keep her up at night . Her sound sleep and tiredness has been a issue. We were initially attracted to Passion Rx but were concerned with the side effects of keeping her up at night. We chose to use Hot Plants and she has taken it for three weeks without any effect. We also augmented it with a tincture from Paris that included damiana and Muira puama for two weeks . The combined formulations have had no effect. WE are both quite surprised. Any thoughts? WE are happy to revisit Passion Rx if we can prevent the effect on sleep!
A. It is impossible to predict which herb or combination would work in any particular person and in what dosage. Most of the sex herb can cause insomnia when used in high amounts. One option is to use half of a capsule of Passion Rx or Passion Rx with yohimbe every other day or try other options such as CDP-choline, lj100, or other options listed in Natural Sex Boosters.
Q. Can you tell me weather Passion Rx is helpful for premature ejaculation and for maintaining a harder and longer erection.
A. Many people notice a longer and harder erection within several days. As to premature ejaculation, we have not had much feedback whether it has a significant effect one way or the other.
Q. Will Passion Rx cause blindness or any type of vision problem.
A. No. In fact, Passion Rx without yohimbe actually improves vision.
Q. I am interested in using Passion Rx. Please explain the rationale for including trimethylglycine in the formula,
A. Passion Rx is formulated by Dr. Ray Sahelian. He is the author of Natural Sex Boosters. He apparently believes that this substance is helpful for sexual purposes.
Q. I’m 47 years old male in great health my blood panel is all in the normal range, I have mild impotence, i wake up every night with a full erection but quiet often i have trouble achieving a full erection when needed, I’ve tried Levitra it didn’t really work that well, plus flushing side effect, I even tried Tri-Mix injectable which works but the in inconvenience and sometime 4 to 6hrs priapism I dont like, I want to try passion Rx with yohimbe how much and how long should I take it?
A. Herbs are often helpful for erectile dysfunction, but it is difficult to predict how often and what dosage will work in any particular person. One option, if your doctor approves, is to start at one capsule every other day for a week. If the benefits are not enough, then the it can be increased to one capsule 2 days on, one day off. Sometimes one formula or herb works for one person but not for another. However, with enough trial and effort, most people find herbs are quite helpful. Keep in mind that herbs take longer than drugs so one has to be patient.
I have read the ingredients in this product and I have seen the same ingredients in other formulas or just slightly different than Passion Rx. Now what makes this product work so well, and other products that I have tried, not work so well. The ingredients you have in this product have been around for a long time. If the ingredients are that potent wouldn’t customers try more of this product than Viagra? I am just trying to figure out what so special about this Passion Rx product.
A. There are many factors that influence the effectiveness of a sexual enhancing product. The ingredients, whether they are just the powders or concentrated extracts, the amounts of the ingredients, the quality of the raw material, etc. Also, the product may not work well if the dosages are too high or too low. Viagra works rather quickly and many people want a quick effect and prefer a drug. Viagra only works for erection enhancement, not for sensation or libido. Passion Rx works in a more comprehensive manner and supports many aspects of the sexual response, but it does not work in an hour like Viagra. Normally it takes a few days for the full benefits to be noticed.
Q. I ran across your website regarding Passion Rx, I have been a diabetic for about 20 years and have been having problems with impotence for about 6 years. I’m on Insulin, two types (Novolog and Lantus) about 20 – 30mg on each depending on my blood glucose reading at that time. I am also taking multi-vitamins, B-vitamin complex 100 plus since I have recently been diagnosed with pheripheral neuropathy I am also taking two pain killers (hydrocodone and gabapentin), plus I am also taking R-ALA to help the healing process on my nerves, about 300-600mg per day. I was taking a special B vitamin (B1 and B12 extract) from WSN but didn’t notice any improvements after 1 month, maybe I should have stayed longer, I don’t know. Anyhow, if I take a slow approach with Passion Rx product, do you think it would do any good ? I would consult my doctor (Kaiser) but they are so negative with any alternative medicines, they just want to keep me on drugs and I don’t like taking drugs, I would rather try healing my diabetes with diet and exercise and supplements, this seems to be helping me control my blood glucose levels much easier and the R-ALA seems to be helping with my neuropathy, although it’s a slow process.
A. It is not easy to predict the effectiveness or to predict the interactions between Passion Rx or other herbal aphrodisiac products and the various medications available used for diabetes and pain. Plus, there can be interactions between these aphrodisiac herbs and R ALA and other supplements.
Q. Many thanks for the impressive extent of your great (medically factual and caring) information and yet, the reason I’ve decided to write is because I’ve still got a question on Passion Rx product. Although I’ve read most (if not all) of this item’s background, I’ve found just one reference to the reality of ‘vaginal dryness’ (mentioned along with depression and/or living with children in clinical research section) and nowhere did I see Dr. Sahelian’s commentary on whether the Passion Rx herbs would address this issue? In other words, if such herbal enhancement of libido can be successfully achieved in a (in my case, postmenopausal) woman, would such biochemical activity also incite the healthier (adequate) production of vaginal mucosa? I do not use pharmaceutical drugs and for sake of one bio-similar/identical hormone, I do use an every-other-day formulation of T3/T4.
A. We have had reports from women regarding increasing lubrication within a week or two of using Passion Rx, but we don’t have double blind studies to prove scientifically whether this occurs. We suggest starting slow at half a capsule every other day and please discuss with your doctor since you are on thyroid medications.
Is it fine to take Passion Rx with a glass of water with apple cider vinegar-organic or with a glass of soymilk-plain?
The capsule can be taken with an ounce or two of either liquid, and then a half hour later more of the liquids can be drank.
Viagra works very well to improve erections in men within an hour of use and the effects last up to 12 hours. Viagra is quite effective in causing erections, however it does not have much of an effect on other aspects of sexuality such as libido or sensation. On the other hand, Passion Rx, having only natural herbs, works slower over a period of 1 to 3 days. Plus, Passion Rx works in men and women, whereas Viagra is only indicated for men.
The best results are noticed on the second and third days of use. Not only does Passion Rx improve erections (not as immediately as Viagra, though), but it also enhances sex drive, interest, sensation, and stamina. Women and men love the effects. The overall sexual experience with Passion Rx is much more pleasant and natural than Viagra alone. Plus, Passion Rx doesn’t have the side effects that Viagra has which include nausea, headache, runny nose, blurred vision, sometimes serious side effects such as chest pain, and there have even been reports of fatalities from Viagra. The most common side effects from Passion Rx are mostly increased body temperature and insomnia when more than 1 capsule is ingested.I have had seed implants and focused beam radiation for prostate cancer almost three years ago. I have tried Viagra, Cialis and Levetra and none have the desired effect. Penal Injections have worked and I can achieve erections and orgasm with the injections. Would taking PassionRX have a better effect the pills and with less bother than the injections?
It is not possible for us to predict in any one person whether any supplement would have the desired effect. If your doctor approves, it is certainly worthwhile to try the Passion Rx with Yohimbe taken 2 days on, one or two days off, for a period of 2 to 3 weeks.I’ve noticed that you use the terms “support” when you talk about what Passion does. If Passion improves erections and libido, why not just say that it enhances instead of “supports”?
As much as possible, we try to abide by FDA guidelines. The FDA does not want companies to make claims on products, but will accept words such as “supports” and “maintains.”
I am on Beta Blockers. Viagra is NO NO for people on this medication. How about your product passionrx? MB, Bangkok, Thailand
A. As far as we know, Passion Rx should not interfere with Beta Blockers, especially if you are cautious and limit Passion Rx to half a capsule a day.
I am taking medication for hypertension and have had a heart attack, with little damage so I was told. The medicine produced ED to the point that Viagra didn’t help. Should I use your product while on these meds?
Only you and your doctor can decide if Passion Rx is appropriate for you. We have some doctors who are recommending 1/4 (one-quarter) or 1/3 (one-third) of a capsule 2 days on, 2 days off which often provides a gradual sexual enhancement with hardly any side effects. However this low dose and slow approach takes longer (a week or two) to provide benefits than higher doses which work within a few hours or a day. The capsules can be opened easily and a quarter or a third emptied in a glass with an ounce or two of juice.
I’ve had a myeloproliferative disease (a rare blood cancer) that’s now in remission. Is it ok for me to use Passion Rx?
We get many questions from those interested in Passion Rx who have a variety of medical conditions. As you may realize, it would take forever to test Passion Rx in people who have all kinds of medical conditions since there are thousands of medical diseases. Plus, each person with a medical condition is biochemically different from another individual with the same condition. For these reasons, we recommend discussing with you physician before using Passion Rx.
However, we can make general statements that could help your doctor in recommending this product. It appears thus far that Passion Rx is safe to use when limited to 1/4 or 1/2 a capsule a day for 2 days on, 2 days off in most everyone except those who have a weak heart, or are medically frail.
I’m taking Prozac. Could I take Passion Rx together with the Prozac?
The answer would be similar to the above question. it would take forever to test Passion Rx in people who are taking medicines or other supplements since there are thousands of drugs and supplement and herbal products. Plus, each person taking a medicine is biochemically different from another individual taking the same medicine. For these reasons, we recommend discussing with you physician before using Passion Rx.
However, we can make general statements that could help your doctor in recommending this product. It appears thus far that Passion Rx is safe to use when limited to 1/4 or 1/2 of a capsule a day for 2 days on, 2 days off in most everyone except those who are on high doses of anti-depressants, anti-hypertensive medicines, anti-seizure medicines, stimulants, chemotherapy drugs, etc.
I am 26 years old and i have ED and I want to try passion Rx. i do not have kids yet. Is this sex promoting product going to affect my chances of having kids in any way (decrease / increase)? Will it reduce or increase sperm count or motility etc?
We have not done studies to determine the influence of this product on sperm count or motility, or determined whether it influences fertility. The feedback that we have had thus far is that this product is an excellent sexual stimulant that increases sex drive, pleasure, and performance.
I have been using Passion Rx since the first formula was released many years ago even before Physician Formulas was founded. Great product!! I want to share my current experience with you. Recently, I have been taking one-half of either plain or yohimbe Passion Rx alternately for two days in a row. On the third day I take one half capsule of a product called Finally on Demand which I purchased at Walmart. I only do this once a week. Without fail, amazing results are received in one hour and last for at least 24 hours. This stuff is much better than Calais which never did much for me. Some users of this Finally on Demand product report very bad headaches and stomach acid which is the same as for Viagra. Probably because I only take one-half of a capsule, I have not had any side effects except the stomach acid which Maalox takes care of. Its almost like this stuff has some unlisted ingredient(s) in it. Many of these are unknown to me. I am 66, good health, 6’3″ and 190lbs. Most , if not all, of my problem is that my wife has little interest after hysterectomy and being removed from hormones unless I do everything myself. If I do, then it is good for both of us. She can’t take Passion Rx because any type of herbs, no matter what they are, hurt her stomach almost immediately. I thought that you might be interested in researching these ingredients. One might come up with a new formula which I would be very interested in. I trust you implicitly and would certainly purchase from you. In any case, I will continue to order Passion Rx which I am sure has a great deal to do with my current success. The listed ingredients are: White willow bark Bombyx Mori Ginger Root Cordyceps Extract Epimedium Extract Oyster Charcoal Green Coffee Bean Extract Vinpocetine 2DG Safron Crocus Wolfberry.
I have PassionRx with Yohimbe. Since then, my doctor has started me on Androgel for low testosterone levels. Can I still take the herbal formula as I have been satisfied with its results?
This is a decision you and your doctor need to make since each person is different in their results and how they respond to interactions between herbal products and medications, hormones. Perhaps the necessary dosage and frequency of use of the herbal formula may be less as a result of the use of Androgel.
How potent is your product? There are a lot of these types of products on the market – have you compared your formula with other formulas on the market? If so what was the results and have you tried your product and what was the results. The reason i ask is that i have tried products in the past – only to be disappointed of the results. I think if there was truly a product that worked overwhelmingly – men would be buying it in record numbers and friends of mine would talking about it.
The Enzyte commercial about millions of bottles sold – Does Enzyte really work?
We have not compared this product to others, there are no such studies done. We have no idea whether other products work, but we do know Passion Rx with Yohimbe is one of the most popular sexual enhancing products on the market and we have a high rate of reorder.
