    Used Flomax several years. It interupted my sleep in the middlen of the night. It also negatively effected my sex life.....erection, libido, and duration and intensity of orgasm and ejaculation. Changed to Cardura. Sleep and sex is much better. It did take several weeks to get past unpleasant side effects of Cardura. Main side effect is tiredness in lower legs. But now I am fine with it.

I used to get up 3 or 4 times a night. Now I might get up once a night. My urine flow has also increased, and I can hold it longer. My sexual desire has definitely decreased, a definite decrease in semen, al ... Show Full Comment

    After a week it has helped the frequency, flow and urgencies. But have no ejaculate with a fairly decent orgasm, now that is really weird. I read someone else's comment in here that said it would come back after getting off Flomax. I'm going to have to try that and see what happens because its just a little too much to handle right now. Except for that one thing, I'm pretty satisfied w ... Show Full Comment
