Flomax Urinary Retention Causes and Reviews


The bladder is a hollow organ in your lower abdomen that stores urine. Many conditions can affect your bladder. Some common ones are

  • Cystitis - inflammation of the bladder, often from an infection
  • Urinary incontinence - loss of bladder control
  • Overactive bladder - a condition in which the bladder squeezes urine out at the wrong time
  • Interstitial cystitis - a chronic problem that causes bladder pain and frequent, urgent urination
  • Bladder cancer

Doctors diagnose bladder diseases using different tests. These include urine tests, x-rays, and an examination of the bladder wall with a scope called a cystoscope. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. It may include medicines and, in severe cases, surgery.

Flomax Urinary Retention 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.

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.
