Can I Take Flonase If I Have Bph
After successfully using Tamsulosin for years (BPH), its nasal congestion is no longer well controlled by Flonase. What are my alternatives?
ENT: Since alpha blocker drugs like tamsulosin cause nasal congestion by vasodilation (as opposed to the vasoconstriction of a decongestant) I can see no reason why nasal steroids would be particularly helpful with congestion solely due to this medication. I suggest you see an ENT or allergy physician for evaluation. ...Read more
BPH is abbrev of benign prostate hyperplasia, which is a general, confusing, clinical term for men's trouble to void although it is a pathological term to describe microscopic increase in number & size of glandular cells in the prostate, starting as early as age 30. For better use, LUTS is proposed to replace BPH. More? Go to ...Read more
Just a day or two: Alph blockers like Flomax work very quickly to improve urinary symptoms. Most patients see a abenefit within a few days, but there are some patients who may have improvement after just one dose. Rapaflo and uroxatral (alfuzosin) have both been shown to work within hours. If the sypmtoms do not improve within a week or two, then a different course of treatment or re-evaluation should be considered. ...Read more

With early onset BPH in a 50+ male, with inability to empty bladder in one shot, is it reccomended to take the meds w/side affects or manage?
Been taking flotral for BPH. How long should I take and any side effects I should watch out for? I am 39yr olf male..
Here are some...: By spelling, I assume glottal is same as Flomx - tamsulosin in the US, which can relax the smooth muscles of bladder opening- urinary sphincter. If working/helping, you would need to take it "forever", but still not curing- only modifying. Over time, the undesirable aging effect will exceed what floral can do for you. However, the pace of progress may widely vary among individuals. More? Ask doc. ...Read more

Is it possible to reverse BPH permanently, as I have tried with no success, don't take meds because of impotence they cause me? MANY THANX
BPH treatment: It is unlikely that the problems associated with BPH, the enlargement of the prostate, will change without medication. BPH is common and occurs as men age. Speak with your doctor about possible treatment options, many of these medications do not cause impotence in every patient and maybe you could benefit from a different medication than you have tried. ...Read more
May I take 1 rapaflo (silodosin) 8mg capsule and 2 tamsulosin 4mg capsule daily without real health concerns? That dosage seems to work well for my bph.
BPH: Rapaflo (silodosin) works by relaxing the bladder neck and internal sphincter but it is a vasodilator. Cialis works by increasing blood flow to the erectile chambers of the penis but is also a vasodilator. Sometimes the combination can cause excessive dizziness. As for testosterone, it is known to promote prostatic growth. Unless your levels are significantly diminished, taking t may be counter-productive. ...Read more
Was on. 4mg flomax (tamsulosin) for bph. Stopping flomax (tamsulosin) and have started. 320mg/day of saw palmetto. Is there any best time of day to take the 1 dose?
BPH & Urine: I often recommend, given that all else is fine in the examination and testing, that my patients start with the herb saw palmetto. If one notices symptom improvement within the first seven days then we stay on the herb for 90 days straight. If there is no improvement I then prescribe one of several medications. If this does not help then I send my patients to the urologist. ...Read more

Medication (s) to take for BPH other than Flomax, (tamsulosin) Jalyn, Finasteride, Cialis and Avdart. Please advise.
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. ...Read more

Yes: Afrin typically should not be used for more than 5 or so consecutive days. Tolerance develops at that point and congestion can worsen. There are studies that suggest nasal steroid blocks development of tolerance, so some patients can actually tolerate Afrin longer. Ask your physician about this before extending use of Afrin and always consult physician before using either of these. Good luck! ...Read more
