I just stopped flomax (tamsulosin) after 2 years. Is it a problem if I take super beta prostate and saw palmetto at the same time? Would this be dangerous?
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).

Using flomax (tamsulosin) for enlarged prostate. Do super beta and saw palmetto both shrink the prostate? Please be specific about benefits of each.

See below: There is conflicting and contradictory research about the benefits of supplements for prostate symptoms. Saw palmetto most studied. Despite much anecdotal evidence suggesting benefit (s) from the supplements you mention, high quality and more reliable research seem to indicate that these supplements have little or no benefit for reducing bph-related symptoms. Very high placebo response. ...Read more

Good question, but..: Known to us, zinc & saw palmetto have been the common ingredients touted to promote prostate health and are often used by many men with marginal effects.

Can you tell me if someone knows if it's safe to take red clover, fenugreek and saw palmetto capsules under 18?
Yes, with caution: These are all safe to take if under 18, but should be used with caution as they all can affect estrogen and other hormone levels.

It might be wise to work with a practitioner knowledgeable in the use of these herbs. ...Read more

Worrisome plan: This germ will stay in your system for quite a while and your immune system may eventually clear it within a year or two. The supplements are like taking a sugar pill-worthless. While you wait, you can infect any girl you have sex with, condoms or not, and they can become sterile as a side effect. ...Read more
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?
Flomax (tamsulosin): Saw palmetto and Flomax (tamsulosin) are two different drugs which affect the prostate in different ways. Saw palmetto is a herb that acts like Finasteride and supposedly reduces the size of the prostate. Studies have shown very little effect of saw palmetto on the prostate. Flomax (tamsulosin) does not affect the size of the prostate, relaxes the smooth muscle of the prostate and its capsule and allows for better flow. ...Read more
