That is fine: Another key for prostate health is to be able to empty your bladder or urinates whenever you feel you need to. This will allow the least amount of pressure on your prostate. The medication you're taking is one of many different medications and it can be used with the other ones if your symptoms are not controlled well

Yes: It is advisable at your age to get yearly digital prostate exam and check PSA. Flomax (tamsulosin) at 0.4 mg dose may help relieve symptoms of dribbling and may help in the urine flow.
