Can Tolterodine Tartrate and Tamsulosin Hydrochloride INN work in synergy? My GP prescribed them. I have CKD and chronic prostatitise.

BPH Tx: There are several papers which have outlined the safety and effectiveness of combining a medicine like tolteridine (Detrol) with a med like tamsulosin (Flomax).

What does it mean when a regular tilt table test is normal but you crash on one with isuprel? Bp and hr tanked, saw spots, shivering cold, and nauseous
