Maca side effects, safety, risk, caution:
Maca side effects on high doses include overstimulation and insomnia. We suggest taking a week off each month from the use of a maca supplement. Maca side effects may be enhanced or increased when used along with other herbs or supplements that have a stimulating nature such as SAM-e, tongkat ali, horny goat weed, tribulus, ginseng, and others. See the latest information on Maca side effects and adverse reactions.

Maca supplement combination with aphrodisiac herbal product
Q. Can a maca supplement be taken the same day as Passion Rx?
A. We prefer them to be taken on separate days since they are both potent.

Q. Is it okay to take maca with other sex herbs such as muira puama, catuaba, mucuna pruriens, horny goat weed, tribulus or tongkat ali?
A. It is preferable to first learn how each herb influences you by itself. It normally takes a week or two of a trial with each herb to have some understanding on how it works. Once you know how each herb works for you, then you could consider combining maca with another herb, but keep the dosages low since there can be a feeling of excess stimulation and problems with sleep, insomnia, if many herbal products are combined at full dosage. 

Regular daily use
Q. Is it okay to take it every day?
A. We prefer users take a break from maca and other herbs. Sometimes taking it, or other herbs, for too many days or weeks in a row can lead to anxiety, overstimulation, irritability, rapid heart rate, and insomnia. Take 2 days off a week and a full week off each month.

Other products sold online or at GNC, Walgreens, and health food stores
Q.
I have come across web sites that sell Royal Maca or Peruvian Maca. It sounds impressive. Are these products better than the maca product that you have?
A. Whether it is embellished by the terms Royal or Peruvian or any other adjective or name, it is still the same plant. Our maca raw material comes from Peru and is of very high grade.

Contraceptive use, birth control pills
Q. I would like to take maca herb, but am afraid it may weaken the effect of my oral contraceptive pill. Will this herb interfere with the potency of my birth control pill?
A. We have not seen any studies regarding the influence of maca herb on the effect of birth control pills. We suspect there would not be much if any of an influence but until studies are done we can't be sure.

Combining with prescription medications used for depression, SSRI meds
Q. I am a psychiatrist and some of my patients have SSRI induced sexual dysfunction. Is it okay for them to take a maca pill along with their prescription antidepressants?
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) include:
Citalopram (Celexa)
Escitalopram (Lexapro, Cipralex)
Paroxetine (Paxil, Seroxat)
Fluoxetine (Prozac)
Fluvoxamine (Luvox)
A. We do not suggest taking the meds and the herb the same day, but once the antidepressants are stopped, if the sexual dysfunction continues, whether male or female, maca herb supplementation can begin.
