    thoughts on my experience with horny goat weed w/maca, ginseng, vitex

    so i am looking for any input or thoughts on my experience i had when i tried a natural libido boosting stack.

    i began taking the above products about 2 weeks prior to a fall vacation to the carribbean. and i continued it during the entire two weeks we were there. i found a dramatic increase in libido and mood after taking these for about 10 days. which are two areas that i need improvement in. i was very, very happy with the effects i seemed to get from it.
    the problem started about a week after we got home. i had stopped taking them all at once when we returned home from the trip. in all honesty, i had one of the most severe bouts of depression i have ever experienced. no joke. extreme temper, sex drive completely dissappeared, felt very unstable mentally, and was just majorly deppressed about everything. it was a real crash.
    these feelings lasted for about a month before i started feeling like a normal human being.

    now i honestly did not know what effects if any i would get from taking these products. i had hoped for at least a better libido so my girlfriend and i could could enjoy our time alone as much as possible. but i had read a lot of people saying that these things really don`t help much, its all placebo effect, etc etc. but it did help me quite a bit. the effects were substantial.

    my concern is what happened after stopping. that is certainly not what i expected. and i have never read anything that would even hint at the possibility.

    so if anyone has any helpful comments, please send them my way.

    thx

    btw.....my dosing was as follows:

    Now horny goat weed - 750mg w/150mg maca each - took 2 at brkfst and 2 at supper
    Now panax ginseng - 520mg each - took 2 at lunch
    herbal select vitex plus - 100mg extract w/350mg powder each - took 2 about an hour before bed

    You will probably get better responses in the supplement section.

    Before attributing these effects to the supps I would think your surroundings and such had more of an effect. After all when vacationing we're usually less stressed, enjoying ourselves, and just overall feeling good. When we get back from vacation and get back to the real world it can be a depressing situation especially if you don't enjoy your work or other conditions of your daily life.

    Not to mention that some people end up exhausted from vacation depending on where you are what your schedule of planned activities are like. Side note, I have never taken any of the above mentioned.

    Now that you are back home, I would try another cycle. Like jlczl said - it can be very depressing getting back into the real world after spending time in an exotic location, no responsibilities,etc. My wife and I go to Cancun a couple times a year and I am ALWAYS depressed for a week or so after getting back into the real world. Many people refer to the feeling as CWS - Cancun Withdrawal Syndrome.

    OTOH - I have never tried those supps so maybe the after effect is legit?

    Of course you realize your avatar picture is a violation of two separate forum rules, do you not? It is not a picture of you, as you agreed it would be when you uploaded it, and it also violates the no nudity provisions in the T.O.S.

    all very good points and i think it is natural for this to be considered the most likely reason.
    however, we are lucky enough to be able to travel south at least once a year and i have been doing it a long time. so i would have to say it was def not from "vacation withdrawl". lol
    thx for the input

    again, another good observation. to be honest your description of a vacation is my usual typr. we usually try to do too much in too little time. it can be stressful.
    but this trip we basically sat on our asses for 2 weeks (other than the awsome scuba diving).

    thx though

    been there. doc said all was fine. i only wish i had been given a copy of the test results to see for myself. in fact, now that i think about it, maybe i will ask him for that. i was tested quite a while ago though.
    too bad i did not go see him during the time i felt so bad. maybe the test would have shown something of interest.
    thx
