How long will it take to get saw palmetto into my system? I will be transitioning from flomax (tamsulosin). What is proper way to handle the transition time?

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?

Note that there is good data that saw palmetto is not better than placebo. (for the record, I have nothing against the placebo effect).
