Too Soon To Tell
Just began taking this. No distinctive side effects as yet, although I got a stuffy nose after my first dose.
Too Soon To Tell
Supposed to enlarge the canal for easier passage.
Reduced the urgency a little bit. Increased the leakage after urinating. Caused insomnia.
No difference in leaking, urgency.
Side effects.
The Flomax did at one time work for me. Now it doesnt work. My brother had the same results and now he has cancer not only in his prostate but throughout his body. Hid prognosis is 4 months. What do yall think are my chances that I end up like my brother?
