Going from flomax (tamsulosin) to finest nutrition extra strength. 4x prostate. It has 320mg saw palmetto, zinc, pygem, b-6. It says 1 a day. Can I take 2 if needed?

Going from flomax (tamsulosin) to finest nutrition extra strength. 4x prostate. It has 320mg saw palmetto, zinc, pygem, b-6. It says 1 a day. Can I take 2 if needed?

Waste of money: There is no good data on any of the expensive special mixes of "herbs and spices" in things like "4x prostate." but at least some snake oil salesman has a nice yacht. Note that there is good data that saw palmetto is not better than placebo. (for the record, I have nothing against the placebo effect).

I have prostate cancer but low grade just wait and see now, are there any special foods or vitamins I can take to help keep it in check? Ty

No: I am glad your cancer is low grade. You would be doing yourself a major disservice at this time to buy into made-up stuff about what you should and should not be eating.
