Same groups: You listed alpha blocker(flomax or tamsulosin),5-alpha reductase inhibitor(finasteride,dutasteride or avodart),combination of both groups(Jalyn)and PDE5 inhibitor(cialis).Any other drugs I give you will be in those groups.If none has helped you,talk to your urologist about TUR prostate or other surgical options.TUR is the "gold standard" with which other surgical options are compared.Good luck.

Nowadays, PVP (photoselective vaporization of the prostate) has been taking over TURP for most of patiients due to "no" risk for major bleeding and water overabsorption during the procedure, no more limitation to the gland volume in experienced hands, and more than 90% of patients going home on the same day of surgery, etc. So, PVP is a great option today.
