I started taking 2mg a day about a year ago. It started out ok, but then it's effectivness seemed to wane. Dosage was increased to 4mg at my one year checkup and results were much improved. No more urgency, weak stream, etc. BUT, and here's my problem, after about 3 months, sympthoms are all back. It seems like I build up an immunity to it. No side effects at all.

Comment:
2mg at bedtime since July 2007. It has pretty much eliminated the night-time urge to urinate anda the stream is usually pretty steady sometimes a bit weak. I've seen no real improvement in BP which has stayed around 140/85. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night feeling as if blood is pounding through my body. Anyone else experiencing this? It's a little scary but with a few de ... Show Full Comment
