Rx says it can take 30 days to be effective. On it for two weeks now and have the stuffy, wet/dry nose and a nose bleed for the first time in decades. Urgency and nighttime frequency is relieved, but stuffy nose, burning eyes, tiredness and dry/inhibited ejaculation are bothersome. Will check with Doctor after a full 30 days.

I'm back on Avodart and it works but not as good as Flomax.
