    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?

    Has helped with enlarged prostate, but not sure what is causing rash, burning muscles & skin from neck down to back and around chest and stomach. Very Very painful,with small bumps. Wondering if anyone else may have these symptoms. Have been taking this med for around 3 years or so, any feedback from others out there?
