Flomax Overview

Tamsulosin, sold under the trade name Alna ® / Flomax ®, is a medication used to treat symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), help with the passage of kidney stones,[2] and for urinary retention along with other measures. Tamsulosin, and other medications in the class called alpha blockers, work by relaxing bladder neck muscles and muscle fibers in the prostate itself and make it easier to urinate.[3] It is an α1a adrenergic receptor antagonist. Tamsulosin was develope...

Seeking advice. I suffer from stomach pain after taking Flomax.

Occasionally I forget to take FloMax with food. Usually a severe stomach ache results. Do others have the same problem? ## Yes, that can be a side effect, when you take this medication on an empty stomach, according to FDA reports. You may also experience dizziness, headache, and flatulence. Overall, it would be best to make sure that you take it with food. Even a small snack may help. Are you on any other medications?

for kidney stone

Some say my Kidney Stone is to big to pass and some say I can. My Kidney Stone is 1.1cm and they put me on Flomax. This is my first one and I heard it's very painful. Can I pass this and will it help to drink lemon juice ?? ## Hi Sherry - sorry to hear about your kidney stone, that does not sound like fun at all :( I can't say whether you will be able to pass it and I'd have to defer to what your primary doctor thinks since they know your medical history. With that said, I think you must have been prescribed Flomax to help with your urination. Lemon juice is anecdotally reported to help prevent kidney stones from forming and enlarging because of the citrate in it - but I don't know if it will help to actually shrink your existing kidney stone. If you are being told it...

himaplasia interactions with flomax
Post a Reply
Can I use flomax with himaplasia? Himaplasia gives better results than flomax.. Urine flow is much stronger, no night visits to the bathroom, no dribbling or hesitation, bladder fully emptied, no burning sensation when urinating.... I don't want to stop taking it with a chronic need. I only started two days ago with himapasia and it has been wonderful and smooth feeling.

Flomax, Oxybutinin, Finasteride

I have been prescribed Flomax, Oxybutinin and Finasteride once a day for an enlarged prostate. Can I take all at the same time and when is the best time of the day to take them? ## There is no particular best time of day to take them, but the FDA does warn that the Oxybutynin may cause dizziness and drowsiness as side effects, so some people prefer to take it at night, to avoid experiencing such issues during the day. It is usually okay to take them all together, unless your doctor or pharmacist instructs otherwise. As to the Flomax, it should be taken approximately half an hour after the same meal each day to ensure steady absorption. Is there anything else I can help with?

Flomax,Tamsulosin, and my 22 yrs of history of bph.
2 Replies RSS
OK guys, gals, ladies, and, gentlemen. I have been taking Flomax, starting in 1996, or since it's release, and at that time, depended on samples from my primary care doctor, because, at that time flomax was 100$ for 30 capsules. Then, when my insurance started paying, the generic Tamsulosin was released, and to date I have remained on this medication for bph, and prior to 1996 Hytrin was prescribed, which also worked for me. For 22 years I have had to take something for bph and I'm now 60 yrs old. OK, I said all that to say on this. For 20 yrs I've taken FLOMAX 0.4 MG Capsules, and never had any side effects, but on 1 or 2 occasions, I ran out and was off for maybe a week before I could not urinate, and had immense pain trying, and desperately was ready to rob a pharmacy to ...

Would you get heart palpitations and or pvc if you start skipping taking your alpha blockers like flomax for instance?my husband uses it for his enlarged prostate ## Hello, Terry! How is your husband doing? Those can be side effects of this medication, as reported by the FDA and, if he's skipping doses, it would be normal for them to keep recurring from when he does take a dose. He may also experience nausea, dizziness, hypotension and vertigo. What dosage does he take? And how many doses in a row does he usually skip? Has his doctor been informed?

flomax and side effects
1 Reply RSS
After suffering from acute urinary retention a Fowley catheter was inserted in the emergency room after which i saw my urologist who immediately prescribed Flomax while keeping the catheter in place for five days. After removing of the catheter, urine flow started right away and I have had zero problems since while on Flomax. After seeing the litany of complaints about Flomax I can only say I have experienced zero side effects but noticed and enhanced libido and no retrograde emissions. I think this drug is great and a noticeable benefit is a significant reduction in blood pressure ## I am so glad that it's working so well for you! That's awesome! And it definitely has to be better than the catheter!! The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness...
