It was suggested by my MD to replace 10 mg of Lisinopril and .4 mg of Tamsulosin daily. It is also considerably less expensive tham Tamsulosin.

I am 81 and have used 2 mg. generic Hytrin for over two years with excellent results. From three times, I now get up only once at night. I take it about an hour before bed so that any dizzyness is mitigated before dawn. Have had no trouble getting an erection and ejaculating.

Well the drug worked it cut down my trips to the bathroom. But the side effects almost killed me. I had terrible chest discomfort, throat was tightened hard to breath and swallow,,I was tired all the time would fall pass out at the computer. It was no fun. I am now waiting for the doctor to give me something else to take. It is still not out of my system and I have some side effects, I was scared ... Show Full Comment

Taking 2mg dose before bed time for 4 months has somewhat improved urination symptoms (frequency, urgency) and dropped my blood pressure from borderline hypertensive to low normal. No other side-effects after the first two days (some dizziness after first two doses).

Comment:
Taking this has relieved my constant urination. Once back on it (after stopping it) urination became normal. I stopped it when I started Avodart. Dr. failed to tell me to continue on the Hytrin.) So I was running to the bathroom (literally) all day and nite. Gee.....wonder why the doctor forgot to tell me to stay on the Hytrin with the Avodart?
