Year of formulation
When did Passion Rx become available to the public?
   This all natural sexual enhancer, which comes in 2 separate forms, with and without yohimbe, was introduced in 2004 and has been reformulated at least once a year in order to improve its effectiveness while reducing its side effects. Since then it has become a very popular herbal libido formula without a prescription. The expert herbalist who put the ingredients together and tested them is world renowned nutritionist and medical doctor Ray Sahelian, M.D., you can communicate with him on his public figure Facebook page.

Where can this product be purchased?
   Passion Rx is available on line at several websites, Physician Formulas, iHerb, Amazon, and it can also be found in some health food stores across the United States but not at GNC stores.

This natural aphrodisiac formula enhances sexual desire, enjoyment, sex drive, pleasure, stamina, and sexual performance in men and women. Many men notice stronger and longer lasting erections.

Speed of onset, how quickly do you notice the benefits?
Passion Rx is not like Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. It does not work in an hour or two. The benefits accumulate over time. Therefore, this product is not the type of pill that you take an hour before intimacy. It takes a day or two to just begin noticing the benefits, you can take the third day off, and then resume the fourth day. Most people begin to notice the sexual enhancement on the fourth or fifth days but for others it may take a week or two. Once you notice the enhancement, then we suggest you reduce the frequency of use to every other day, then every third day.

Hi, How long does it take to see results am on day two and I felt a little more today than yesterday. I will skip day three and take one day 4.Thanks for your help I appreciate it, would combining the horny goat weed with Rx help boost my libido?
    Take day 3 off, then try again day 4 and 5 and you will really notice the enhancement. We don't suggest taking it together with epimedium herbal extract since this formula is potent by itself.

With or without Yohimbe?
There are two versions, with and without Yohimbe Bark extract. Some people prefer Passion Rx, others prefer the one with Yohimbe, and still others like to alternate between the two passion pills since they are different formulations and work in different ways to enhance sexuality.

Ingredients include:
Ashwagandha, Acetylcarnitine, Catuaba, Cnidium, Choline, Cistanches deserticola, Coleus Forskohlii, Daidzein, Damiana, DMAE, Dodder seed, Horny Goat Weed, Jujube, maca extract, Mucuna Pruriens, Muira Puama, Passion Flower, Suma, Rehmannia, Rhodiola rosea, shilajit, trimethylglycine, tongkat ali powder (eurycoma longifolia jack) and tribulus terrestris extract.

Passion Rx with Yohimbe ingredients are:
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera root), Catuaba bark extract, Barberry extract (Berberis vulgaris), Cnidium monnieri extract, Herba Cistanche extract (Cistanches deserticola), Cynomorium songaricum known in China as Suo Yang, Horny Goat Weed extract (Epimedium grandiflorum), Maca root extract (Lepidium meyenii), Muira Puama (Ptychopetalum olacoides), Mucuna Pruriens extract also known as cowhage, Passion Flower extract (Passiflora incarnata), Tongkat Ali extract LJ100, Tribulus Terrestris extract and Yohimbe bark extract.

I need to know if it contains dairy or gluten.
    It does not contain dairy or gluten or soy residues.

I would like to know the amounts or mgs of each ingredient in Passion Rx sex pill.
    Thanks for asking but this is a proprietary blend. The FDA allows companies to list the ingredients but allows by choice to not list the amounts since they understand that if amounts are listed other companies can copy a successful formula.

There is no strict dosage guideline since some individuals may get a benefit from a third of a capsule every other day whereas others may need a full capsule or more. We suggest you take at least a day off every 2 days. Once the benefits begin, the dosage and frequency of use can be decreased.

I recently purchased Passion RX with Yohimbe that arrived to my mailbox. And I observed on the label that men over 60 should start with half a pill. Why is that? And I also want to know if being over 60, which is my case, if it's possible and under what conditions to take the normal dose as suggested on the label instead the half capsule. I know that what you say it's just your opinion and that I am responsible of following the suggested use. But let me know your position.
    In general older people are more sensitive to the side effects of medications and supplements, therefore it is a safe approach to take less. You can open the caps by pulling on each side and empty the contents in water or juice on an empty stomach in the morning, 2 days on, 1 day off. If after a few days you do not notice a benefit, and no side effects, you can take a full pill if your doctor approves.

Can you please tell me if there is any risk of physiological dependency?
     We are not aware of any risk of being dependent on this herbal formula. We suggest people take a full week off each month.

Long term use
If you plan to use it for many months or years, we recommend that you limit your use to 2 or 3 capsules a week and to take a week off per month.

Adverse effects, risks, caution
Side effects are possible with Passion Rx, just as they are possible with every aphrodisiac herb or prescription impotence medications. The most common side effect is increased energy and alertness which can last into late evening. If you take Passion Rx too many days in a row without a break it could start affecting your sleep.
   Aphrodisiac herbs have a tendency to increase heart rate. If you have heart disease or have a sensitive heart, you could notice that your heart rate is faster. If you take more than a capsule repeatedly for a few days you could even notice heart palpitations. For this reason we suggest using no more than a capsule and taking a day off every other day or every third day. Use less over time. Initially it may take a few days for this product to become effective, but once it is in your system, it works faster next time you take it.

Interactions with dietary supplements
Passion Rx is a potent product and we suggest, as a general guideline, to not take it the same day as herbs, hormones, or supplements that stimulate or enhance metabolism. There are thousands of single herbs, vitamins, and nutrients and countless natural formulas on the market and we can't be specific with each of them. Discuss with your health care provider if you have any health condition or taking other nutritional supplements before you use this natural sex enhancer.
   Passion Rx is potent enough and we suggest you not take the following formulas, herbs and supplements the same day.

Antioxidants: Alpha lipoic acid.

Amino acids: Phenylalanine and Tyrosine.

Aphrodisiac herbs and adaptogens: These include catuaba, ginseng, horny goat weed extract, maca, muira puama, rhodiola, tongkat ali, tribulus terrestris and yohimbe. LJ100 is an extract of tongkat ali and is quite potent, so we don't suggest taking LJ100 the same day as this herbal aphrodisiac formula.

Arginine - thus far there does not appear to be any untoward reactions when less than 4 grams of arginine a day is used the same day.

Eyesight Rx. The combination could cause insomnia. Eyesight Rx, in high doses, can cause shallow sleep, so can the libido product.

Fertilaid - Hello, my wife and I are in our thirties. I was wondering if I can mix Passion Rx with Fertilaid. I am looking to increase my sex drive along with my sperm count. My wife and I have one child and it has taken several years to get pregnant again and this baby unfortunately was a miscarriage. We were both tested ok to try the artificial insemination but failed to conceive.
   We are not familiar with Fertilaid and have not seen published studies with this product to know whether it is effective. Passion Rx has ingredients, such as maca, that are known to have an influence on fertility. We suggest not taking the products the same day. In the long run, Passion Rx is only used 2 days a week.

Ginkgo biloba.
I just recently purchased Passion Rx. Is it safe to consume Ginko Biloba along with it? I also wanted to know that if i take the capsules 2 days on 1 day off would it be safe to take Mind Power Rx on the day that i dont take the sex enhancer? I feel like i wont get the full effects of Mind Power Rx if i do it that way.
   We suggest not taking ginkgo biloba or other mind formulas the same day as the libido booster. One can take these supplements on the days when the sexual enhancer is not being used.

Hormones: DHEA and pregnenolone, together with Passion Rx, could cause overstimulation, insomnia, and rapid heart beat.

Mind and mood enhancers: These include acetyl carnitine, DMAE, galantamine, huperzine A, ginkgo biloba, Mind Power Rx, SAM-e, and trimethylglycine. You can alternate taking one capsule of Mind Power Rx on a separate day than one capsule of the passion formula.

Multivitamins: Some multivitamins are weak and may be fine to take with Passion Rx, others are strong and should be not be taken the same day. MultiVit Rx is potent and best used on a day when a Passion Rx pill is not taken. In the long run the natural libido pills are usually 2 or 3 days a weak and Mulitvit Rx can be used the other days.

Prostate Power Rx - We suggest you alternate between Prostate Power Rx and Passion Rx. You can take the sexual enhancer two or three times a week while taking the prostate pills 3 or 4 times a week but not on the same day.

Tongkat ali and LJ100. You can take one of these the first day, Passion Rx the next day, and then take the third day off, and repeat the cylce.

Interactions with prescription medications
This male and female enhancer is very potent and may interact with prescription medications. This is a complicated issue since there are thousands of pharmaceutical drugs prescribed by doctors, and some patients take several medications a day. Discuss with your doctor if you have any health condition or taking any prescription medications before you use Passion Rx.

ADHD drugs and stimulants should not be taken the same day as this sexual enhancing pill.

Birth control pills - Begin with a half a capsule of Passion Rx two days on, one day off. If you do not notice any side effects, then you can take a full capsule of Passion Rx two days on, one day off, or every other day. Once the benefits begin, you can take this product less frequently.

Beta blockers - Examples include: acebutolol, atenolol, bisoprolol, esmolol, labetalol, metoprolol, pcarvedilol, ropranolol, and nebivolol. These medications, in general, can cause impotence or erectile dysfunction. Some men may search for an herbal formula to counter the erection preventing side effects of these prescription drugs. It is possible that Passion Rx could counteract these side effects. If the beta blocker is being used to prevent a heart arrhythmia, we do not suggest using herbal sexual enhancers since most of them, in high dosages, could induce heart rhythm disturbances. If the beta blocker is being used to treat mild blood pressure, then it should be okay to use Passion Rx two days a week.

Blood pressure medications - If you are taking a blood pressure medication due to moderate or high blood pressure, we don't suggest using Passion Rx. However, if you are taking a blood pressure medication in a low dosage since you have mild hypertension, the herbal formula may work out fine. Just monitor your blood pressure regularly.

Diabetes medications - If a person has a mild case of diabetes and is on low dosages of metformin or insulin, then there should not be a problem, but if the blood sugar is poorly controlled then it may be best not to use this herbal formula.

Heart medications - Those who have heart disease should be aware that many herbs used for sexual enhancement can raise heart rate since they are stimulants. Therefore, anyone with heart disease or taking heart medications should be cautious. If your doctor believes your heart condition is mild and stable, he or she may advise you take half a capsule of Passion Rx every other day. If your heart condition is moderate to severe, we do not suggest taking this product or other herbs used for sexual enhancement that stimulate the heart.

Impotence or erectile dysfunction drugs such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra - We don't suggest taking the natural libido enhancer and Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra the same day. However, since the aftereffects of Passion Rx last 2 or 3 days, if your doctor approves you can take a capsule of Passion Rx two mornings in a row and then on the third day not take Passion Rx but take an erectile dysfunction drug, perhaps a lower dose than you normally would take (such as half your normal dose). There are many variations of this, but the bottom line is not to take them the same day. The generic names of these erectile dysfunction drugs are sildenafil citrate, sold as Viagra, tadalafil (Cialis) and vardenafil sold as Levitra.

SSRI antidepressants such as Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil. Sexual side effects often occur with the use of SSRI antidepressant drugs such as citalopram Celexa, escitalopram Lexapro, fluoxetine Prozac, paroxetine Paxil, Pexeva, and sertraline Zoloft. It is difficult to predict the interaction of Passion Rx with medications used for depression since there are more than a dozen common antidepressants that are prescribed and people use them in different dosages. For instance, one person may take Prozac at 10 mg whereas another person may take a 40 mg dosage a day.
     As a general rule, we suggest you discuss with your doctor regarding taking this natural herbal formula along with your SSRI medication. He or she may suggest you take half a capsule every other day for a week. If no problems occur, the dosage can be increased. Keep in mind that SSRI drugs increase serotonin effect in the brain and this neurotransmitter can reduce libido, urge and sensation. Therefore any herbal formula you take to enhance sexual health will have to fight back against the suppression by the SSRI drugs.

Thyroid medications - If you take Synthroid or other forms of thyroid medications, we suggest you be careful since sexual enhancing herbs can stimulate the heart and so can thyroid medications. Use a lower dosage of Passion Rx and have approval by your physician.

Your web site talked about cautions involving thyroid problems when using Passion RX, but it did not specify whether hypo- or hyperthyroid problems are the issue - or both. My wife is taking 75 micrograms of Synthroid, which we understand is a small dosage. Our concern is that her doctor may not have a strong knowledge of herbal remedies, and/or she may have a bias against them that could preclude a fair recommendation, so we want to be as knowledgeable about this as we can. What does Passion RX do with respect to the thyroid, and would a 75 microgram dosage of Synthroid tend to indicate increased caution in combination with the sexual enhancing formula, or is the issue with an over-active thyroid? If the herbal product is used, what side effects could be noticed when taken with Synthroid?
   These are no simple answers since many factors are involved besides medications when a supplement is added. Passion Rx can increase heart rate and cause overall stimulation, and if a person is overtreated with Synthroid, that is if the dosage is high for that person, there could be a fast heart rate developing. One option is to begin with a third of a dosage and monitor carefully for heart rate or feelings of being restless or overly stimulated.

Shipping overseas, Europe, Asia
I wanted to know if you had any reliable UK suppliers as ordering from US can take time and has customs costs too. The website www.have dot is selling your product Passion Rx, I would like to know if it is a reliable website to order from?
    It appears to be a reliable web site for ordering to those who live in the UK, England, Ireland, Scotland, and perhaps other European countries.

I would like to know where I can buy Passion Rx in Australia, as I am very interested and would like to buy a few bottles. Purchasing of this product in the US is possible but the shipping cost is almost half of the total cost.
    Shipping cost is 12 dollars by international mail and 35 dollars by global express. We are not aware of stores in Australia that sell this product.

I recently purchased Passion Rx and Prostate Power Rx and am happy with the results. I make frequent business trips to Argentina and other Latin American countries and would like to take these products with me. Are you aware of any problems taking these products into other countries with customs etc. Grateful for any information or insight you may be able to provide.
    We are not sure since customs may change their guidelines and it depends on the customs agent looking through the bag, but we think there should not be a problem taking about a dozen or so bottles, maybe more, in luggage.

I was wondering how much time will take to ship to Madrid, Spain?
    It usually takes about a week to ship to countries in Europe. 

Inquiries from customers
I am a woman who's almost 37 years old and had a hysterectomy at age 34. I have noticed that I do not have a sex drive any more at all. I am married but I rarely get horny anymore and when I do have sex it is extremely dry now and it used to be the total opposite. Am I too young to take Passion Rx? Will it benefit a woman of my age at all?
     It is not possible for anyone to accurately predict who will benefit from the use of a dietary supplement just as it is not possible for a doctor to know if the drug he or she prescribes to a patient will be effective. If your health care provider approves, you can certainly try this natural aphrodisiac to see if it helps your libido, sexual pleasure, lubrication, and sensation.

Does Passion Rx treat or cure erectile dysfunction or impotence?
    ED is caused by a number of conditions including poor blood flow to the penis, hormone dysfunction, lack of adequate nitric oxide production, atherosclerosis of the vessels in the groin, and neural dysfunction. This product can be helpful in treating or curing ED or impotence in many users, but not all.

I am contemplating taking Passion Rx but the sole ingredient of Yohimbe has got me on edge. I was wondering if I wanted to take one supplement to increase my libido and testosterone in my body, and I was choosing between Tongkat ali and a Catuaba bark and Muira Puama extract combination, which one would you go with?
    It's impossible to predict which herb or combination will be effective for any one person. The only way to know is through trial and error.

Will there be any side effects if I smoke marijuana and hashis? Maybe like 2 or 3 cigars daily? Also, let's say I have a strange program. I work night and I go to bed at 5-6 in the morning and get up 2-3 in the afternoon, how should I take pills? Can I take before going to sleep?
    We have not had enough feedback from users of marijuana or other mind altering substances to know how this sexual formula interacts with them but we would suggest caution and use of low doses and approval by your health care provider. It may be a good idea to take the sexual improving product as soon as you get up since taking it before bed could influence your sleep patterns.

Testimonials and feedback
My husband gave me a few Passion Rx capsules. I've always been skeptical of herbal aphrodisiacs. So I took one in the morning, didn't notice much that day. The next morning I took another capsule. That afternoon I was cleaning my house when my thoughts went south and I became aroused. My husband was still at work, so I had to make myself happy. The sensation was more pleasurable that I can remember in decades. Lorraine, 46.

I've noticed frequent morning erections since I've been on this libido product but if I take it too often I have shallow sleep. Lou, 55.

I've never had a libido my whole life. I've had several boyfriends and now I'm married for a second time. I got Passion Rx in the mail and was excited to try it the next morning. I know your website says to start in low dosages, but I was too eager to get a result. By the way, I haven't had periods for 3 months. Anyway, I took two capsules the next morning and within a few hours, I swear, I had a libido. I can't believe it. Marlene, 52.

At first it took me 4 days to notice the sexual enhancement, predominantly in increased sensation, more sexual thoughts, and more sexual drive. But now I notice the same effects within a few hours after taking Passion. Kathleen, 34

You should tell your customers that Passion Rx really kicks in at its best the fourth day. I gave a few capsules to a friend and that's what he noticed, too. David, 51

My husband is 55 and he's diabetic, and I'm 52 in good health. He's been having problems with impotence for several years and we hardly are intimate anymore. He asked his doctor if he could take Passion Rx and the doctor approved. He took one pill two days in a row, and I did, too. As suggested we took the third day off and resumed on the fourth day. We became our old selves again during the days of courtship many years ago; touching each other all day and kissing. Passion Rx is true to it's name. My husband is now able to have longer-lasting erections, enough to make me happy! Sally, 52.

I took one pill in the morning as recommended on the bottle. I can't say I felt anything. The next day I thought of taking two pills but decided to be conservative and try one pill again. I thought I noticed being more interested in sex by midday, but wasn't sure. That evening, while watching TV, I started getting a spontaneous erection, and feeling more horny than I've been in months. It does work as the doctor says. Jim, age 51

I read with great interest about your product and the way this can increase dopamine and improve sexual desire (libido). I have done a surgery -- which includes cutting of T2 and T3 ganglions. This has reduced energy level and also reduced libido. This sympathectomy surgery i think reduces dopamine and that's maybe the reason also for my decreased libido. My question to you: Will Passion Rx help to increase sexual drive after a nerve surgery and damage of the sympaticus tone? Is there any other product or treatments you can recommend based on a damage of ganglion T2 and T3. Is there any restriction to send Passion Rx to Norway? Do you have any online site I can order this natural product or other products you find useful to treat my condition?
    We have not had any feedback from users of sexual products in cases of such a surgery, so we don't know what product, if any, will work. Customs in Norway is difficult to send products from US, but you can find Passion Rx maybe in a UK online store.
        I did find a UK online store that sell this natural herbal sex formula. What a product! It is 12 years since i had the surgery that decreased my energy and libido drive. Passion RX is the first product I have ever tried that has given a significant improvement in energy and libido. The libido is not the same as before the surgery, BUT I can say that it is significant better. This is for me great! Thank you. Is there other product you offer, that can be taken together with this formula to further improve energy? I also wonder if I can take Passion RX on long term basis? Like I do now (3 to 4 pills a week).
            For long term use we suggest taking one or two capsules each week. There are many natural products that increase energy including CoQ10, carnitine, B complex vitamins, certain multivitamins such as MultiVit Rx, and others. Different people respond differently to such supplements.
