Yohimbine - Taurine - Competitively Inhibitive?


All - I read...somewhere...that both yohimbine and taurine compete for the same receptor, so they shouldn't be taken together. Is that true? If that is true, how can they both be included in daily nutrition? I take a little taurine upon awakening and at later points throughout the day. I generally do not take yohimbine (so I never really thought about it) but am taking it now to extend a lean-out.

Any advice appreciated.


I don’t believe that’s correct.

Perhaps the person saying that confused the alpha2 glycine receptor with the alpha2 adrenergic receptor.


Thanks for your reply. I tried to look again for the cite, but couldn’t find it. Though you provided more detail in your single sentence than what I had read.
