Second, It seems you are on alpha-agonist (clonidine) and blocker (Carvedilol).

28 and diagnosed with prostate enlargement, having urinary retention.Taking one table of tamsulosin once a day .Is ok if taking saw palmetto with it?

No harm done: Soy products are healthy, yet there is always some controversy about all good nutrients , off and on.
