Yohimbinum | Materia Medica by John Henry Clarke

Johimbin. A crystalline alkaloid obtained from the bark of the Yohimbeha, or Yumbehoa tree, of the Cameroons. N. O. Rubiaceae (?). C23H32N2O4, or C22H30N204. Trituration.

Clinical : Diuresis. Heart, palpitation of. Impotence. Priapism.

Characteristics : The natives of West Africa discovered a potent aphrodisiac in the bark of the Yohimbeha tree, and from this an active principle, YOHIMBINUM, has been isolated and tested in Europe (Therapist, December 15, 1900). It is a powerful stimulant of the genital function in males. In animals it causes increased liveliness and cheerfulness, hyperaemia of the conjunctiva, heat and redness of the ears, and of the nose also in dogs. Lambreghts (J. Belge d’H., viii. 188) relates the case of a young man, 28, “thin, anaemic, nervous, and partially impotent,” who took a 5-mgr. tablet one morning, another in the evening, and a third the following, morning. The symptoms of the Schema are his, and they were so severe that he discontinued the drug in spite of a certain amelioration of the sexual neurasthenia. YOHIMBINUM set up symptoms of fever, disordered the digestion, caused agitation and tremors, and increased the action of the heart. Eulenburg (Deut. Wed. Woch., April 25, 1901, quoted B. M. J.) used YOHIMBINUM in 10-drop doses of a 1 per cent. solution, and in 5-mgr. tablets, “in cases of neurasthenic impotence with excellent results.” YOHIMBINUM should be a homoeopathic remedy in priapism and congestive states of the sexual organs.
