Does flomax cause increased heart rate?


uplandco 9 Feb 2017

I am an Ultrasound Specialist.
I was prescribed Flomax for prostate enlargement. After I took it I had a severe headache and my heart rate has increased 20 to 30 bests. How long will this effect last?

You need to seek medical advice & ask him/her to prescribe meds which perhaps suit your system.

Take care, be safe & well, do keep me informed, please.
