After taking Tamsulosin for 3 days I had to quit it. I am a diabetic (type 2) and in 3 days of taking this med my glucose jumped 90 points! Nothing else in my health regime changed, so I know it was this med. Since stopping my blood levels dropped down to normal.

Have been taking one month. Slight headach at frist but not now. SIGNIFICANT sexual downside. No erections since taking the drug. Seems to be taking a long time to do any good. Will continue for one more month.

I was able to urinate easily after 2 days. Ejaculations went into the bladder at first then after 2 weeks some ejaculation thru the penis was possible although still somewhat restricted. Dizziness is moderate and you should be ready for it. Never experienced passing out, just light headedness. All pain experienced during urination is gone and after 1 month I am adding Saw Palmetto to my daily vi ... Show Full Comment
