Flomax Pruritus Causes and Reviews


What is itching?

Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin. Sometimes it can feel like pain, but it is different. Often, you feel itchy in one area in your body, but sometimes you may feel itching all over. Along with the itching, you may also have a rash or hives.

What causes itching?

Itching is a symptom of many health conditions. Some common causes are

  • Allergic reactions to food, insect bites, pollen, and medicines
  • Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin
  • Irritating chemicals, cosmetics, and other substances
  • Parasites such as pinworms, scabies, head and body lice
  • Pregnancy
  • Liver, kidney, or thyroid diseases
  • Certain cancers or cancer treatments
  • Diseases that can affect the nervous system, such as diabetes and shingles
What are the treatments for itching?

Most itching is not serious. To feel better, you could try

  • Applying cold compresses
  • Using moisturizing lotions
  • Taking lukewarm or oatmeal baths
  • Using over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines
  • Avoiding scratching, wearing irritating fabrics, and exposure to high heat and humidity

Contact your health care provider if your itching is severe, does not go away after a few weeks, or does not have an apparent cause. You may need other treatments, such as medicines or light therapy. If you have an underlying disease that is causing the itching, treating that disease may help.


Flomax Pruritus Reviews

Wed, 19 Mar 2014

Interesting comments. Just started this med today. Evidently I have a lot of med negative reactions. Took Minipress for a month then was hauled to ER via ambo. Hope this one ill work with as few side effects as possible.

Was put on Flomax a couple of years ago, experienced swollen breast and painful nipples. Was taken off Flomax and symptoms went away. Recently, I was put back on it and when objection was raised, I was told Flomax did not cause the breast issue. After taking it again, my nipples were so sore you could not touch them. Even clothing touching them hurt. Was taken back off Flomax and symptoms went away again. Saw a urologist today and he said Flomax doesn't cause breast issues and my wife put him in his place. Doctor's lie, don't listen and don't want to be told anything, they are brain washed. Don't take Flomax, it is horrible.

I am 87 years old and have been taking 0,4 mg of Flomaxtra daily for over 6 months. Befiore that I was taking first doxazosin, then terazosin but was changed by my urologist to tamsulosin. I cannot complain of severe side effects, mainly slight dizziness at times and blocked nose (I have suffered from nasal catarrh all my life). I live in Ghana and am unable to get generic forms of tamsulosin and Flomaxtra is quite expensive here. I work daily in an office using a computer and do not feel fatigue any more than is normal for my age.

Been on Flomaxtra for 2 months with the following affects. Urinary flow improved immediately but ejaculations ceased totally. Known as retro ejaculation. Penis became inflammed around the head and under the foreskin, Posthitis? but goes away when tablet stopped.
Bit worried about long term outlook so am adjusting dose downwards myself. GP knows less about this product than my research has shown. Also been put on Pradaxa which is still on trial so maybe an interaction going on. Best to monitor oneself, less chance of being killed off my the medics.
