    Flomax side effects

    I have my PSA tested probably 2x a year and its always close or within normal. I do have to get up to use the bathroom SEVERAL (5 or 6) times a night.

    I tried Flomax (Tamsulosin) a couple of years ago and it didnt seem to make any difference so I eventually discontinued it and still didnt notice any change.

    Ive tried several of the OTC over the years and made no difference.

    I started flomax again a couple weeks ago but this time I started taking it 2x a day, .4mg This time it seemed to help. first 3 nights didnt get up more than 1x and pretty much the same the other 2 nights.

    Now the problem. I didnt put 2+2 together before but this time it was obvious. I dont get quite as much wood as I was or not as hard but it works fine and worse it takes FOREVER or I dont cum at all. Its very difficult to finish.

    I remember having the same problem before for quite a while but wasn't sure why. Now its pretty obvious. Any suggestions besides doping back down to 1x a day or stopping it completely? Im guessing even at 1x a day I will have the same problem because I did before and at 1x a day it didnt seem to help with the nightly bathroom trips.

    I don't have this issue with Flomax, but I am at the 1 a day dose. I've been on for about 3 years, and other than the "ghost load" issue for the first two weeks when I started, haven't had any odd sides. Lowered BP some, helped with "voiding the bladder", but no real negatives.

    I did try coming off at one point and had to pee more, so went back on. I have to infer that it works as intended for me.

    Unrelated to Flomax, I did add a topical product called dermacrine that brought the wood back to 18 year old levels. Man, the Beast woke me up one night all angry and like pissed off �� Just something to maybe look into...

    Well the ghost load is my main issue so maybe I should try to tough it out and see if it gets back to normal.

    For me it took a couple of weeks.

    That is some freaky stuff they don't always prepare you for!

    Get a bladder scan, I would bet you are retaining 350-350ml urine. Never get a Turp, Never. Green lazer light therapy is far better.

    My p.s.a. levels were normal also
    Yet my doctor prescribed me flomax to relax the muscles in the groin, either the bladder or the actually prostate itself

    *I never understood why if my psa level was normal evidencing a normal-sized healthy prostate, then why did I have to urinate like you often 5-7 x per day or more, with weak urine flow and a drip.. ??

    I mean does not that evidence that my prostate is normal in size and it's not pressing down or impeding my urethra?

    Sure when we're on the juice or even just bodybuilding naturally, many of us prefer drinking a gallon of water per day, i.e. to for 1 thing, to ease the joints from heavy lifting,

    but I never understood that

    Maybe it's anxiety or maybe the weakining of the muscles, due to age, of the shaft that makes a person not totally relieve this piss all the way out

    (by the way, I experience the same g load sides and that was something that really seemed counterproductive, but after using it for a while it goes away on its own and I didn't notice much of a difference on flomax, just the regular once a day dose of i think, let me look 0.4 mgs per day)

    Healthy aging sometimes involves use of a medical penis pump (not the novelty kind)....maybe use of that and jelq exercises can strengthen the walls of the sex organ so that not only does the ejaculate shoot out at 18 year old levels, but also so does the urine flow

    Anybody have any thoughts on this?

    I stopped taking the flowmax 2x a day and back down 1x a day and haven't had the ghost load recently but still doesn't feel quite normal and still been getting up a few times a night/day (I work nights) but hopefully that will get better soon.

    No need for a medical pump. Ill just tell my wife to kick it up a notch lol. She is only 24 and still likes to practice.
