Uroxatral (alfuzosin): Sometimes it works well and other times it doesn't seem to work at all. Very confusing!

I have been on Alfuzosin 4 months now. I had increasing difficulty peeing for several years, and it got to the point where I had a serious prostatitis, probably from lack of flow. After several months of antibiotics to clear the prostatitis I can pee about 70% better. I take the medicine at dinner time every day. I notice a very slight dizziness sometimes when getting up. I notice a very slight feeling of tiredness all the time. I can have orgasms just fine, no problem with erection either. No diminish in ejaculate I can detect. I feel I am at the point in life where I cannot pee without some kind of assistance, and this medicine seems to be a pretty good option. I will be continuing with it, probably for the long term.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): I use Flomax for a least 5 years, side effects were awful. Started Uroxatral one year ago and my life change 100%. This is an excellent medication.

I love this. No retrograde ejaculation and my flow is much improved. I have to take it twice daily, though to get the desired results. No side effects noticed until I went on a weight loss regimen and my blood pressure dropped significantly, but once medications were reduced, the dizziness on standing up too quickly disappeared. Highly recommended!

Been on finesteride, and alfuzosin for 2 months, not impressed yet. Still up at night about three times, sex drive very low, seen Doc about severe pain in one Testicle but that has settled down, but still very bad shoulder pain, also tired, so will try for a little while longer then back to GP. See what other options I got.

51 years old, I was on Rapaflo 8mg for about a year until insurance informed me they would not cover it anymore, and offered four generic alternatives. Researched all four, found Alfuzosin reviews least objectionable , so asked urologist for prescription. Daily 10mg dose works just as well on urinary symptoms, does not cause dry orgasm. Slight headache and tiredness first day, both gone now. No other side effects. Happy so far with this medicine.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): Uroxatral helped my benign prostatic hyperplasia symptoms, but it made me extremely tired.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): Switched to Uroxatral after being on Flomax for a couple months. While Flomax addressed Benign Prostate Hyperplasia issues very well, it had horrendous effect on my sexual function. Could no longer ejaculate at all, and could no longer reach orgasm. Within a few days of being on Uroxatral, those issues are gone and in some ways are better than before being on either medicine. Uroxatral is handling the BPH issues just fine.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): Started on Uroxatral as a replacement for generic Flomax. Pain while urinating, urgency and frequency of urination all increased, along with a lot of difficulty getting started and trying to keep going. On top of that, I experienced rather bad constipation, to boot. All of the above cleared up after going back to terazosin.

I can urinate strongly if I take it regularly, everyday without fail. But once I stopped for 2 days, it will be painful around my bladder area. I have been on this medicine for more than 2 years, and my Doctor says I have to be on this drug for at least 5 years!

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): It works well if you can stand the side effects; weakness in limbs, dry mouth/throat, constant sore throat that feels like strep and constant thirst. I had to quit and return to Flomax as it just makes me dizzy.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): Uroxatral seems to work very well. Erections are sometimes difficult but a small dose of Viagra seems to take care of that problem, when it becomes a problem.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): It worked well with the first dose, but the sinus headache, rubbery limb feeling, and upper respiratory scratchiness make it not worth taking.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): I have now used Uroxatral six months. At first, when taking Uroxatral, I would easily tire and experienced stomach pain much of the day. Now, it seems my body has adjusted to the medicine and I am not as likely to become tired. I still have stomach discomfort but not as severe. One thing I have noticed which concerns me is the fact the Uroxatral seems to wear off easily and the frequency to use the bathroom has not really disappeared. Overall, the drug seems to work well.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): Although I experienced immediate relief (able to urinate freely), I have experienced low stomach pain almost constantly. I also tire much easier since starting Uroxatral.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): I used this product but felt tired and feel it also affects my sexual function, that was not an issue before use.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): This made me tired and lethargic. I became so tired I didn%u2019t even want to have sex. Not to popular with the wife. My symptoms of having to urinate all the time did not go away. I work for a living and being tired all day does not cut it.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): It took a few days for me to feel any noticable difference. Once it worked its way into the system, it acted as described and provided relief with almost no side affects. The one thing I can not stress more is to make sure it is taken consistently (same time every day) for maximum effect and relief.

Uroxatral (alfuzosin): Uroxatral was about as effective for me as Flomax with fewer side effects. It makes me very tired, and lightheaded sometimes, but with non of the stuffiness that I had with Flomax which was a big plus. I'm not rating it higher because it didn't do much for my BPH pain although urinary flow was much improved. Herbal supplements of quercetin, and beta sitosteral still work the best for me.
