    Improvement in flow modest, if any. Increase in nasal mucous. Difficulty in sleeping, no more than 3 - 4 hours per night. Frequent urgent bowel movements. I am doubtful about continuing use.

    got insomnia for the first time in my life (age 62) after 5 weeks on this and reverse ejaculation as an added bonus. In return, got a very small increase in hesitancy and flow. Been off it two weeks now and still can't sleep without a pill. Anybody else had the insomnia effect ? How long did it take to go away?? Thanks.

    urination has barely started to slow down after 5 days, but ejaculate his totally disappeared and my scrotum is a little bit swollen and uncomfortable. I'll be checking in with my urologist tomorrow (2/4/2008)

    Comment:
    The drug yielded a marked improvement in flow rate almost immediately. However, the side effect of extreme nasal congestion offset its positive aspects. I stopped using Flomax after eight days.
