Just stated taking flomax and am having dizzy spells. Should I persevere with this drug? Flomax has reduced urgency to urinate and empties bladder.
Yes, you should persevere especially as they are relieving your symptoms.
Flomax can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting; alcohol, hot weather, exercise, or fever may increase these effects. To prevent them, sit up or stand slowly, especially in the morning. Sit or lie down at the first sign of any of these effects.
These effects may subside with time as your body adjusts to the Flomax. Talk with your doctor if the dizzy spells become bothersome.
