I took some supplements containing caffeine and yohimbe extract

This answer was rated:

I took some supplements containing caffeine and yohimbe extract and believe that I am reacting badly to them. My heart is pounding and I feel like I can't sit still. I also feel like I am going to throw up. Should I seek medical attention or will the effects wear off soon?

You can eat food as tolerated--no problem there.
