Generic name: Yohimbine hydrochloride
Brand names: Yohimex, Yocon

Why is Yocon prescribed?

Yocon is used in the treatment of male impotence. The drug is thought to work by stimulating the release of norepinephrine, one of the body's natural chemical regulators. This results in increased blood flow to the penis.

Most important fact about Yocon

Yocon does not work for all men. Your doctor will determine if Yocon can be prescribed for you.

How should you take Yocon?

Take Yocon exactly as prescribed.

--If you miss a dose...

Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2 doses at the same time.

--Storage instructions...

Keep Yocon in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of the reach of children. Store it at room temperature, away from moist places and direct light.

What side effects may occur?

Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Yocon.

  • More common side effects may include:
    Decreased urination, dizziness, flushing, headache, increase in blood pressure, increased heart rate, increased motor activity, irritability, nausea, nervousness, tremor

Why should Yocon not be prescribed?

Yocon should not be used if you have kidney disease, or if you are sensitive to or have ever had an allergic reaction to yohimbine. Make sure your doctor is aware of any drug reactions you have experienced.

Special warnings about Yocon

Yocon is generally not recommended for use by children, the elderly, or men with heart and kidney disease who also have a history of stomach or duodenal ulcer. The drug is also not recommended for men being treated for a psychiatric disorder.

Possible food and drug interactions when taking Yocon

It is important that you consult with your doctor before taking Yocon with drugs for depression such as Elavil or other drugs that change mood.
