Switched to Uroxatral from Flomax. All my BPH symptons have returned. The Uroxatral has been completely ineffective for me. I had been taking Flomax for more than a year. Flomax virtually destroyed my sex life...NO Semen, NO ejaculation, NO orgasm...NOTHING! period...LIFE IS TOO SHORT!...I am ceasing using these meds and will just have to handle the BPH symptoms

Comment:
58 year old male, five years plus of use, definitely improves flow, however, will reduce semen at ejaculation, resulting in a less satisfying orgasm. At 58, I may have to decide whether I want to pee like a 12 year old, or have sex.

Comment:
Switched to Uroxatral after being on Flomax for a couple months. While Flomax addressed the BPH issues well, it had a horrendous effect on my sexual function. Could no longer ejaculate at all, and could no longer reach any orgasm. Within a few days of being on Uroxatral, those issues were gone, and in some ways were better than before I was on either drug.

Comment:
Not experiencing retrograde ejaculation on this medication but urine flow seems even worse and I have a pain inside the tip of my penis and bilateral pains in inguinal canals. Perhaps still from the cystoscopy last week! Very fatigued on this med. More ejaculate but it is clearer and less milky in color! May stop med soon.
