Online Sex Supplements Associated With Serious Psychoactive Effects

Medscape (5/6, Brauser) reports that according to the findings of a review presented at the American Psychiatric Association’s annual meeting, “ingredients in sexual enhancement products advertised and sold online are associated with several serious psychoactive effects.” The review of 108 Internet “sites and other online resources showed that the most common of these products contained the active ingredients yohimbine, maca, ginkgo biloba, and/or horny goat weed,” all of which were tied “to the induction of anxiety, panic, mood changes, hallucinations, and/or addictive behaviors.”
