Reviews for Flomax to treat Overactive Bladder
"After 4 years of taking Trospium doctor tried me on Flomax. Not only did it not work I expereinced terrible side effects including racing heart for 3 hours each day, sweating, heavy legs, stomach upset, lightheadness and shaking. Also went from not having to get up at all during the night to needing to get up and urinate 2-3 times each night. Now going back on the trospium"

"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."
