One week later and urinary flow is unaffected. Ejaculate amount is significantly increased.
I'm going to contact my urologist to try a medication that he mentioned that might shrink my prostate. I usually avoid any medication except BP because they can have side effects.
I have non diabetic peripheral neuropathy and went through the entire course of increasing dosage without any benefit, but it was worth trying. I have good prescription coverage so I'll take a chance on the prostate meds.View Thread
I've been taking it for a few years. It might be helping a little bit. My urologist said when he first prescribed that there wouldn't be a problem going off it. It might be providing some benefit. My amount of ejaculate has decreased, but my sexual response is not very good probably because of age and BP medication. I might stop taking it for a few weeks and see if there is any effect. The only time I made it through the night without getting up was when I did the free 30 day trial of daily Cialis. One of the side effects was retrograde ejaculation, which I didn't like.
My regular regimen is a prostate support supplement and pygeum. There is a medication that according to my urologist might shrink my prostate and I will consider taking it.
With or without Flomax, I still need to get up to urinate a couple times a night but generally can get back to sleep relatively quickly.View Thread
