I think the doctors don't realize how long I'm taking this. They keep renewing the prescription. I started to take it for help urinating but I didn't think it was a lifelong drug. Please give me a ball park of the usual treatment time. Thanks alot.

I didn't quite understand this BPH until I came by this site and started looking through the web some time back.
I don't know if anyone has heard of the Nymox trial but I decided to have this procedure done instead of taking pills. I have been in it for 2 months now and it really helped for relief so far.
I am wondering if anyone else has tried it with good results?

I was told it will be lifelong, as well as my newest, 6 months ago, medication of Avodart-also forever;I am 67. The 2 together are a dynamite combo, more effective than either singularly, and this I read is common. I'll have them forever, and I take the Flomax 0.4 mg 2 times a day. I do not like that, but, I guess I'll get used to it. I often forget my a.m. dose, and I do not notice the difference.
