Have taken Flomax for about 5-6 years.Initially Flomax was effective in regulating urine flow and reducing frequency of urination. However it has become less and less effective in last six months. Now seems to be almost completely ineffective

Comment:
My urinary flow has improved a little. Less frequency. However, within the first day of taking the drug, my ejaculation produces zero semen. This is very discouraging and I immediatley got off the drug. The side effect is not permanent.
