Flomax Syncope Causes and Reviews


Fainting is a temporary loss of consciousness. If you're about to faint, you'll feel dizzy, lightheaded, or nauseous. Your field of vision may "white out" or "black out." Your skin may be cold and clammy. You lose muscle control at the same time, and may fall down.

Fainting usually happens when your blood pressure drops suddenly, causing a decrease in blood flow to your brain. It is more common in older people. Some causes of fainting include

  • Heat or dehydration
  • Emotional distress
  • Standing up too quickly
  • Certain medicines
  • Drop in blood sugar
  • Heart problems

When someone faints, make sure that the airway is clear and check for breathing. The person should stay lying down for 10-15 minutes. Most people recover completely. Fainting is usually nothing to worry about, but it can sometimes be a sign of a serious problem. If you faint, it's important to see your health care provider and find out why it happened.

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.

Fri, 30 Dec 2011

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.
