I have an overactive sex drive. I am hypersexual. To combat

Customer Question

I have an overactive sex drive. I am hypersexual. To combat this problem, I have been drinking mint-flavored tea and taking a supplement called chasteberry. I am a 26-year-old man. I'm currently taking 500mg per day.
What I wanted to know is, is taking this supplement chasteberry, otherwise known as vitex agnus-castus, safe? I know that this is usually used for women's menstruation related problems. So Are there any short-term or long-term negative side-effects of vitex agnus-castus for men?
