, was an angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitor.
ACE inhibitors (such as Capoten, Vasotec, Prinivil, Zestril, Monopril
, Altace, Accupril, Aceon, Mavic and Univasc) are less effective when combined with yohimbine, as are beta-blockers (such as Tenormin, Kerlone, Corego, Trandate, Lopressor, Toprol XL, Corgard, Levatol and Inderal).
