Comment:
By accident (forgetting to take it for 2 weeks), i discovered it had been causing my gynocomastia (my severe itching of breasts stopped). Also my fatigue. Huge renewal of energy. The timing of onset of gynocomastic and taking rapaflo (silodosin) was exactly perfect for causation.

Comment:
During the winter, I began the experiences of a weak stream, hard start in urination and dribbling.

Comment:
Slept through the night from the first dosage . No ejaculate from day me. No thank you. Tied tamsolusin. With the same results. Have also tried cialis. Wonder drug. No side effects, very effective; however only 8 pills a month are covered by insurance, so the out of pocket cost is over $200 a month . I will keep trying alternatives until I find one with no side effects.

Comment:
I am 68 and still sexually active. Took Rapaflo for 2 days and there was no ejaculate at orgasm. Continued taking it for 4 more days with no noticible difference in urine frequency or force. Took myself off it after a second lousy sexual experience. Besides no ejaculate, not much feeling either.
