    Comment:
    I was switched from Alfuzosin to Rapaflo because if I did not evacuate the badder frequently, it was extremely difficult to initiate a grin stream.

    I currently take Rapaflow along with Fineresteride. I'm still waking 4-6 times each night to urinate. not only that, but I Have retrograde ejaculations during sex. I've been prescribed Cialis (tadalafil) for ED. When I have Taken a 20mg Cialis, either I won't have a need to urinate during the night, or I might be awakened once to urinate.
