    I will get 100 tabs of yohimbine HCl, 5 mg each, in a few days or so, and consider starting low at 5 mg. Now I want to get the most out of it and wonders how others prefer to take it. Eat it, snort it? And also what dose is considered an average dose? I have heard 5-10 mg is a good dose, but he has also heard a lot of people having bad experiences with small doses, and how small they were is not known to SWIM.

    I don't know about yohimbe tablets, but he has had yohimbe powdered bark several times and he wanted to give a few good advices:
    1. More does NOT make you feel better! [two teaspoons were enough to give him eyes like saucers for +/- 6 hours (if he still remembers right:smoking:), horny like hell, but here it comes, first couple of hours dizzy, bouncing headache, and his stomach felt like a carnival attraction (nauseous like puking wasn't far away). After the side effects were gone it was fun (note:doing yohimbe together with someone of the opposite sex[if that is wat interrests you;)] makes you're day complete). Compare with viagra only completely different:cool:.
    2. Do not UNDERESTIMATE the MAO-blocking effect(also blocks serotin and dopamine). Cheese, chocolate and wine wil even make you sick(headache/nauseous)and speed & mdma can be fatal if taken when the MAO-blocking effect is still active.
    I used mushrooms frequently, lsa trips, salvia smoking and on a few occasions datura[he appreciated her effects]. Never went bad(hallucinating too hard to accept by someones mind).
    SWIM did mushrooms the day after yohimbe ignorant as he then still was, he ran in the woods to hide in the bushes near the train tracks, so no one could find him (peacefull:(), with the intention of calming down. Three hours he sat there until the effects started to wore off. The only discription he had was: like two train were constantley crossing trough his head and al the passengers said/asked things to him, like every second 5 or so. Five hours after the noticeable effects left him he still had a feeling through out his bones as if they (can't find the correct word, hope this will make it clear : like a campfire, when the flames are gone the wood is still ....).
    However it is very usefull in combo with dmt:D.
    So enjoy, but be carefull..

    50 mgs of yohimbine, or 50 mgs of yohimbe bark?
    I guess it would be much easier to accidently have to much bark than the yohimbine HCl salt.
    Btw: I read on erowid that yohimbine is a very mild MAO, maybe milder than the bark, but I am not sure.

    it was 50 mgs of yohimbine, I haven't got a clue how much was in the bark. SWIM normaly doesn't do MAO-blockers, therefore I do not know what to expect from a good MAO-blocker. It was the lack of interrest for information on this substance (maybe a little bit because SWIM happend to be in the neighborhood and low cost).
    Furthermore I do not know which substances are also present in rootbark that could have any influence.

    Ok, thank you. Most recommendations i have gotten says that 5-20 mg of yohimbine is a very good dose, so it should be allright!

    I find that 10mg is the best dose for oral, while 2.5-5mg can be a good dose for insuffulation. I think that Yohimbine HCL is a good snort, and I would often take 5mg orally, then snort 2.5mg. Insuffulating a low dose can also prolong an oral dose, if SWIM snorts as the original dose is just beginning to tapper off.
