 4  BPH pre and post TURP Occasional light head, different bowel movement, Overall not a lot of side effects Helped urine flow prior to TURP surgery To the point that I almost canceled the TURP surgery but I decided to go forward with the surgery and not depend on Flomax the rest of my life. I know Flomax is not for everyone, but it certainly worked for me M 78 45 days

 4  Urinary Retention This drug significantly increases my urine stream. The only negative effects are hypotension, once my BP was 90/75, increased heart rate over 100, and blurring of vision at times This drug works to improve urinary flow, however it causes significant hypotension, at least with me and increased heart rate. Low blood pressure is a side effect stated in the prescribing information and you should watch it. M 45 3 years

 1  extreme problems urinating nausea, as if motion sick, dizziness, weakness, groggy, depressed, brain fog took Flomax for about a week. Symptoms came on slowly but then, after about four days, I was constantly nauseated every time I stood up, tired to the point of disability, groggy, constantly dizzy. However, my difficulty urinating completely disappeared. I'm contacting my doctor to let him know I can't take the side effects. M 68 7 days

 3  Enlarged prostate Sinus pressure, facial pain, jaw and ear ache, pain behind my eye which actually woke me and prevented me sleeping. Blurred vision. Became lightheaded and dizzy with a pounding heart when going from sitting to standing. This would interfere too much with my daily life to put up with. Only had for 1 day so I don't know if these effects subside with continued use, but the pain is too significant to persevere and find out. I believe it works, as my urinary flow rate increased slightly after just the first dose, but honestly, for me, I'm not sure it's worth the trade off to be in excruciating pain from the side effects, but able to pee normally. I may return to it but for now it's too intense. M 31 1 days

 4  Kidney stone Reduced ejaculation. I was hospitalised with a blocked urethra due to kidney stone and infection. the pain was severe. My urine flow was a dribble and very frequent.The sudden urge to go pee was terrible.since taking flomax I can hold my urine as normal, its no exaggeration to say it has transformed my life. a bonus is that it helped open my urinary tract and I passed the kidney stone without having to have surgery M 57 30 days
 4  BPH 20 hours after taking first tablet I started to get some annoying pain in my teeth and funny taste in my mouth. Took a second pill but the pain continued to develop through the evening. By the time I went to bed I was in a lot of pain in my teeth (upper right side), had a real nasty metal taste in my mouth, and had developed an agonising headache - felt as if somebody was driving a knife in behind my right eye. Did manage to fall asleep, but woke up one hour later, still in agony. Was pretty close to heading to the hospital just in case there was something serious going on, but google searched and found this page. Settled my nerves a little bit after reading other peoples experience. So I popped a couple of high strength Ibuprofen and managed to fall asleep. Woke up in the morning feeling a lot better, still some niggling throbs, but getting better. Guess it's just my body getting used to the medication. Was to the point that I was wondering if there was something seriously w It has started to solve my difficulty with urination so will continue the treatment. There is a list of other possible side effects that I have yet to see if they become an issue. M 56 1 days

 1  BPH Runny nose, back pain, side pain, tiredness so tired and weak I can't do my gym workout. Hypotension. At first I had great erections but dry orgasms followed by loss of interest in sex. Breathing problems where I was short of breath.Confusion on thought process to manage my own patients. I discontinued the medication and was fine in 2 days. Also insomnia with minimal feet swelling. Too many other side effects to list which are unknown by my own urologist. Talk to your family doctor, the medicine slowed me down to a point where it caused problems with my activities of daily living. However it did help with the urine stream. M 61 14 days

Jesus, are there actually people out there who can take this horrid sh*t? I'm 6'1", healthy, active and strong. This stuff crippled me with a single dose.

FLOMAX  (TAMSULOSIN HYDROCHLORIDE):  Tamsulosin is used by men to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH). It does not shrink the prostate, but it works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and the bladder. This helps to relieve symptoms of BPH such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, weak stream, and the need to urinate often or urgently (including during the middle of the night). Tamsulosin belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha blockers. Do not use this medication to treat high blood pressure.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
