Rapaflo causing severe stuffy nose
I just started using Rapaflo and my nose is almost completely closed off. I can't sleep. Does this side effect wear off after a few days ## Yes--suddenly very soon after taking rapaflo in the evening my nose becomes very congested and I have trouble breathing and sleeping. I am also severely constipated. Not good! ## Most side effects take several weeks to wear off, as your body gets used to a medication. If it's that troublesome that you're losing sleep, you may want to talk to your doctor about something you can use to alleviate this symptom. You can learn more Rapaflo details here. Has anyone else experienced this odd side effect?

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.
