Extenze Side Effects

All drugs have side effects of some kind or the other. And there are Extenze side effects too, which you must be aware of if you are using the product or are going to.
Extenze forms a part of the treatment of sexual disorders such as erectile dysfunction, and is used to improve low sex drive. It is a herbal supplement. Its manufacturers tout that the drug also helps in penis enlargement. The effects of this drug, as what has been claimed by the makers, are permanent. It is not meant to be used multiple times, but only when it is needed. However, the safety of this enhancer is questioned by the Food and Drug Administration, and is therefore, regarded as a product that is undefined in safety.

Negative Effects of Extenze on Health
  • Sleep disorder seems to be one common side effect. Prolonged use of the drug makes it difficult for the user to fall asleep or probably, staying asleep. This side effect may trigger a secondary set of symptoms. This might comprise fatigue, increased irritability for no apparent reason, trouble in concentrating and forgetfulness. The user might feel sleepy during odd hours, like watching TV or reading, etc.
  • Among the severe side effects of Extenze which may surface, are those which are associated with the cardiovascular health of the person. The ingredients used in the drug may cause the heart to work more so as to increase the blood flow throughout the body, which is required to cause an erection. So, prolonged use may increase heart rate (palpitations), and this might be harmful for people with high blood pressure. Stroke, heart diseases, heart attacks, etc., could also result from its use.
  • Respiratory problems have also been reported by users after using Extenze; common being breathing difficulty, accompanied by lightheadedness, dizziness and even fainting.
  • Using Extenze may result in making the user moodier than what he normally might be. This is known as a cognitive impairment effect on the user. Apart from this, he may get anxious for no apparent reason, and may be abnormally irritable and angry.
  • One prominent side effect could be an allergic reaction in the body. This may manifest itself in the form of difficult breathing, swollen face, and swelling of mouth. Some men may have difficulty in swallowing food, and tightness in the chest area too.
Apart from the side effects mentioned above, some people have even reported...
  • Blurred vision
  • Skin rash
  • Hives
  • Tinnitus
  • Abnormal weight loss
  • Coldness and numbness in the limbs
  • Diarrhea
  • Tingling
  • Migraines
  • Problems urinating
  • Frequent urination
  • Abnormal agitation
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Burning ears
So these are the side effects which you might have to encounter once you begin using Extenze. These side effects may be worse in people who are already suffering from other chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases, etc. Also, it is recommended not to use the drug in conjunction with other supplements otherwise the results may be worse. If you go through reviews on the Internet, you would find most people have given a thumbs-down to the use of this product. However, there are some websites which vouch for the efficacy of the supplement, and offers assurance that it does not cause any of the side effects mentioned above. But the fact that no drug is 100% side-effect free cannot be denied. And the same can be said about Extenze. Moreover, as mentioned already it is not FDA approved. So do not get carried away by commercials which advertise the efficacy of this herbal supplement, and weigh its benefits and possible risks before investing on it. And the best way to do that is consulting a qualified medical expert, who can also help you manage any sexual disorders you may be suffering from. Remember, when it comes to drugs, it is always wise to err on the side of caution. Take care!
