    My doctor recommended I take this stuff, along with Avodart for enlarged prostate treatment. After 2 days I stopped taking them and will never go back. Severe dizziness, sinus congestion, insomnia, no sex drive were among many side affects experienced. All things considered I will just live with frequent urination at night. Anything is better than having to cope with the side affects.

    I was switched from Alfuzosin to Rapaflo because if I did not evacuate the badder frequently, it was extremely difficult to initiate a grin stream. This, plus still frequent trips to urinate in the middle of the night. Rapaflo took care of those issues, but then I was having retrograde ejaculations (semen flows back into the bladder as opposed to the normal way), also known as "dry ejaculatio ... Show Full Comment
