Started on flomax but didn't like side effects. Take 5mg Cialis in the morning and Alfuzosin after evening meal. Works great for BPH and minor ED. No side effects so far. No dizziness. Much better urine flow and erections. Also changed to a low oxalate diet and am drinking more fluids because I also had problem with bladder stones. So far so good.

As soon as I take Xatral XL my heart starts to beat fast, I had short of breath and even in very low effort my heart starts to beat 150-160 or more bpm. All symptoms disappear on the day I do not take this pill.

I have used various types of this drug and seen no result and disturbing side affects. Took Tamsulosin HCL and did not see much results. Been taking this Alfuzosin drug for several months and doesn't seem to do much. Go to bathroom 4 or 5 times a night. Usually, after a disturbing dream and wake and have to pee. Doctor has increased to 20 mg and did this one night and woke up next morning sluggish with no energy level. Could be interaction with Ambien and blood pressure pills, but, I think I am going to return to taking one per night and just deal with the 4 or 5 nightly visits to the bathroom. No solution to this problem it appears or than surgery and I don't think I like that idea.

About 15 years ago, I was prescribed finasteride, but the side effects scared me, so the pharmacist gave me a prescription for Tamulosin, but I had retrograde ejaculation. I treated myself successfully with Saw Palmetto 85% standardized extracts 2 times a day for a number of years but, eventually, the problem worsened. I did some research on PubMed and I found out that Alfuzosin does not produce retrograde ejaculation. My doctor had not heard of it and was very impressed. He prescribed it for me. It is excellent. I take one and in a couple of hours and for the remainder of the day, it's like pulling the drain plug: complete voiding. The severity of my problem increases and decreases, so I only use Alfuzosin on a prn (as needed) basis and the rest of the time I use Saw Palmetto.

Tried flomax and rapaflow both with unpleasant side effects, the main one being retrograde ejaculation. Was on the fence about this one and so far had severe stomach aches and dizziness/lightheadedness like I was going to pass out when standing up. This medication is too hard on me.

I've taken this for about 2 yrs. At times I stop taking it, to see what happens. Quite frankly, I seem to get up LESS @ night when I don/t take it.
