Latest experiment wih Yohimbe

I'll post my background at the bottom. If this information is too graphic, say so,

I took 1000mg of Yohimbe at 6:00 am on an empty stomach. At 7:00am I was able to achieve a maximum erection for me which is about 85% of what I had before I had ED problems. I was able to orgasm and maintained the erection for another 5 minutes. An hour later I was able to get about an 80% erection. The side effects were a jittery like over caffeinated feeling that lasted about 4 hours.

Background: 67 years old about 50 pounds over my ideal weight and taking low dosage high blood pressure medication. I know Yohimbe is not a good idea, but have no family history of heart problems. I have tried levitra and cialis which isn't effective as my experiment. My normal regimen is 6000mg of horny goat weed a day and that produces about a 70% erection and might be acceptable for intercourse. I have no side effects. The last two times my wife and I made love was less than a year and more than 4 months ago. I was able to pleasure her manually and was able to orgasm after a very short time with a minimal erection. I was taking no ED meds or herbs.
My wife greatly prefers intercourse and me not being able to provide it was disappointing to her. The only way I can get her to want to try again is if I can demonstrate to her that I can have a decent erection and then only if she is in the mood. Not having an erection
is a huge turn off for her and so she is very unlikely to consider sex.

Plan A should be to lose the 50 pounds and be able to hopefully get off the blood pressure meds. That will be difficult because I have a problem with my feet (not diabetic) that limits the amount of walking I can do. I don't have the time for swimming and dieting alone doesn't work well without exercise. I have stationary bike, but due to other physical problems I don't sleep well and am tired. I'm going to push through it and get on the bike. This will improve my health and hopefully my erection.
