I take lexapro and vyvanse daily and occasionally adderall…

Customer Question
Hi, i take lexapro...

Hi, i take lexapro and vyvanse daily and occasionally adderall for higher intensity focused activities. The lexapro makes it very difficult to have sexual climax and reduces sexual interest. Can I take the natural herb supplement Horny Goat Weed safely? Is there any danger if alcohol is involved? Thanks.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

By the way i am a 24 year old healthy male. yes i am prescribed all those things (not horny goat weed), so i see a psychiatrist

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

I take zyrtec for allergies

Hello I'm Dr Chip

There should be no problem with your taking the Horney Goat Weed--it won't interact with your medications and mixing alcohol with it is safe

Please let me know if you need any more information

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
