rapaflo in the body tissue
How long does it take for your body to resume back to normal after taking rapaflo 8mg for 2 years? I have quit taking the drug and would like to know how long does it take for your body to filter out this drug. Thank you for your time. Jim ## Hello, Jim! How are you?

Rapaflo
I started taking Rapaflo several weeks ago. I have had what I thought was sinus congestion and sore throat. I called my general doctor for antibiotics and only got worse. Throat very sore. I am going off the med for a few days to see if the sore throat and stuffy nose improves. I will see my urologist soon and we will discuss. Also, I do have only one kidney that is not healthy so I'm thinking he should not have prescribed Rapaflo based on what I read here.
