Didn't work very well and made my throat very dry.

It simply didn't work, didn't have any impact on my having to wake up 2-3 times every night to urinate. Doctor discontinued it to try something else.

At the age of 60 I can now drive without looking for a toilet every half an hour. Some side a effects but what the hell got my life back wish I had known about Flomax years ago.

My Doctor put me on Flomax. I took it for 2 days and don't like it. I dream all night and still get up and pee 3 times during night, also my heart rate went up. Not for me.

It helps but there are times I just do not have time to get to a bathroom. I am 69 and have trouble getting a erection. I do not know if the drug is part of the cause.

I stopped my 4-5 time nightly peeing down to 2-3 but I get dizzy standing sometimes and always when outside in the heat playing golf. Never let myself get dehydrated and now drink electrolyte mixture. Does not interfere with outdoor exercise or biking (don't get dizzy).

I am a woman taking flomax for severe urinary retention. Flomax works wonderfully, although it did not start to work for me until I had taken it for about 3 weeks. Initially there was some mild drowsiness and dizziness, which has mostly subsided. Make sure you talk to your doctor about getting on a bathroom schedule so you can eventually stop taking this. I was going 15 to 20 x/day and not able to empty below 200 ccs. This combination has gotten me down to going only 6 or 7 x/day, and completely empty.
