Possible: I need to ask, why would a 30 yo need flomax (tamsulosin)? It does have side effects. Being dizzy is most common. Check with the doc who prescribed it.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Flomax causes usually the opposite ..Flomax helps one to empty the bladder so you don't have to go often.............Agree with Dr Fletcher,check with your presciber Dr ROY
