Is "Vitex agnus castus" safe for young males?

Patient : Hi My question is about Vitex agnus castus I am 19 years old male and I take it in dosages 90mg and 180mg but not every day. The purpose of taking it is to lower libido The herb seems to work for me very well. Now I can concentrate on learning for my university I am not taking any prescription medicine. I take only AtoZ vitamin and mineral complex and Omega 3 acids. Rarely I use guarana pills or vinpocetine 5mg for mind boost. Lately I do not sleep well so I take also 150to300mg valerian. I ran out of 5 HTP that I use to take before bed time 50to100mg. I am absolutely healthy. What sides effects can the Vitex agnus castus cause for me? Is there any negative interaction between the herb and mentioned supplements? Thank you for your response Robert
