Reviews for Flomax

Anonymous March 9, 2021

“67 year old male. Thought I had a UTI, prescribed Cipro by GP. After 4-5 days of use no improvement of symptoms. History of kidney stones 25 years ago; current symptoms were not similar. Went to Urologist. History of BPH. It WAS a kidney stone which I passed after taking Flomax for 4 days. Now I have been asymptomatic for weeks. Urologist originally wanted to perform cystoscopy, CAT scan etc.I cancelled all for now with a 'wait and see" approach. The less prescription drugs you take and tests the better...IF you can avoid them. I take Losartan 50mg As a result when on Flomax my BP was erratic. Tachycardia, palpations etc. So beware, I am quite sure that the Flomax brought these episodes on. I take my BP with a sphygmomanometer and stethoscope in addition to a home device daily 2X/day. So Flomax...for me it was great for clearing the kidney stone, for that I would recommend it highly.”

“I have been taking 14mg Prazosin per day (one/2mg tablet spread out throughout the day taking it 3tabs 3tabs 2tabs of Prazosin and 1 x 5mg Flomax) with a great deal of success with urgency/dribble factor and waking up (rarely). Due to taking my last 2 tablets at bedtime (= 4 mg Prazosin) I usually have a slow urination and within the first hour of taking my one Flomax and 3 Prazosin (=6 mg), I am great for the whole 16 /- hours of the day.”

“Worked great at getting me to pee normally and had the bonus of giving me good erections without Viagra. The down side is no orgasm! That's a deal breaker for me. I stopped taking it..”

“It works but it affects my ejaculation during sex. I've been taking it for a while. It depends on how old you are for that not to matter.”
