Hello and welcome,

There are some anecdotal evidences that Vimax has helped some men. But there are no scientific evidences (randomized double blind controlled trials); so it is difficult to say anything about their efficacy.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.


I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

I don't understand this? randomized double blind controlled trials
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 5 years ago.
Randomized double blind controlled trials are done to gather scientific evidence of efficacy of drugs. In this placebo (no medication) and drug are compared of the effects. The group of patients do not know who gets the pills and who gets placebo. The effects are registered by the doctors who are unrelated to the study so there is no bias in the results.

So it is harmless for me to try them out as they are like herbal - you do know about these tablets that I have in front of me that it makes your body growing stronger and muscle in a few weeks?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 5 years ago.
Ingredients of Vimax are following; Dodder seed (seman Cuscutae) Epimedium Sagittatum 4:1 Ext (bark) Ginkgo Biloba Panax Ginseng (root) Tribulus Terestris Powder Saw Palmetto Pwd Hawthorne Berry (Fructus Crataegi) Inosine Anhydrous Avena Sativa Ext 10:1 (Oat Straw Ext) Cayenne Pepper (Fruit) Pwd Other Ingredients: Magnesium Stearate.

When one take so many herbs together there can be some side effects. This may help in getting strong muscles.
