Have been having stuffy nose/ sinus congestion problems that seem to get worse an hour or two after I take my Flomax and let up a bit after about 24 hours pass. Stuffy nose is listed as a side effect but the statistics are not real decisive. Am wondering if other folks are having the same/ similar experiences.

It's unfortunate that no one has responded ... none of the reviews mention anything about having stuff nose problems. But as you say it is a known side effect so can happen. If it is really bothersome please discuss with your doctor.
They probably won't be able to give you any medication to counteract the problem as decongestant medicines may aggravate the prostate problem.

Recently my doc put me on Flomax. I took it only 3 days. Had very stuffy and dry nose leading a small nose bleed. Also sinus congestion and pressure over the eyes. Reported this to doc who switched me to Proscar. So far no bad side effects from Proscar. From research, I think Flomax works faster than Proscar. But Flomax is not an option for me. Hope my experience helps you.

I have been experiencing very stuffy nose sinus since starting on flomax, also started Lipitor at the same time. However, not sure if there is a connect - maybe - the stuffiness is severe - it shut off all air intake thru the nose, then breathing thru my mouth quickly develops into dry mouth. Have used sinus rinse using the bottle w/ large spout, that in conjunction w/ nasal spray works sometimes. Seems to happen when i lie down
