Flomax Urinary Tract Infection Causes and Reviews


The urinary system is the body's drainage system for removing wastes and extra water. It includes two kidneys, two ureters, a bladder, and a urethra. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the second most common type of infection in the body.

You may have a UTI if you notice

  • Pain or burning when you urinate
  • Fever, tiredness, or shakiness
  • An urge to urinate often
  • Pressure in your lower belly
  • Urine that smells bad or looks cloudy or reddish
  • Pain in your back or side below the ribs

People of any age or sex can get UTIs. But about four times as many women get UTIs as men. You're also at higher risk if you have diabetes, need a tube to drain your bladder, or have a spinal cord injury.

If you think you have a UTI it is important to see your doctor. Your doctor can tell if you have a UTI with a urine test. Treatment is with antibiotics.

Flomax Urinary Tract Infection 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.
