Flomax and detrol

Common Questions and Answers about Flomax and detrol

flomax

My question (after all that build up) is are any other men here on Flomax combined with Detrol LA? And, if so, has anyone had the same experiences that I previously explained? Finally, does the body seem to adapt to Flomax, and return to semen production (without abdominal pain after orgasm)? I apoogize if my language seems quite blunt, but I'm extremely concerned (especially the abdominal pain after, even though short-lived).
I have always passed the voiding ultrasound, so I don't know how that could be. He prescribed flomax, and I have been on it ever since. Flomax helps a little, but I still have urgency. Also, like Jbrooks, my symptoms are amplified after a bowel movement. No one can explain what is going on. I also noticed that when my symptoms are the worst, my urine is almost clear like water and I pass a decent amount of urine. It has a peculiar smell as well. So, here I am with no answers.
I am 64 years old and I have an enlarged prostate for which I take medication (flomax, detrol). Should I see my physician about this? Is it a problem if I ignore it? Thank you.
Mahajan disclosed that she is a member of the speaker's bureau for Pfizer, which manufactures Toviaz (fesoterodine fumarate) and Detrol (tolterodine tartrate). Dr. Nihira and Dr. Lentz have disclosed no relevant financial relationships. American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) 30th Annual Scientific Meeting. Presented September 24, 2009.
For the times that I do have some control over my bladder I have been put on both Flomax and Detrol LA. The Detrol LA helps for the bladder cramping or over active bladder. I also use Buscopan when the cramping gets back. Perhaps you could discus this with your doctor to see if Detrol LA or Buscopan might be of benfit for you.
Things that they tried for me include medications like Flomax and Detrol LA. These meds give relieve on some areas but does not really deal with the prostatitis. One thing that gives me some relief at times is a hot bath. I'm sorry but I'm afraid that there is no real treatment option other than trial and error. I used to work as a heavy duty mechanic and I had many sleepless nights causing me to mis work due to the discomfort as well as being tired.
He did a uroflowmetry test and said my speed and everything was good. He has put me on a month's worth of cyproflaxin, i have also taken detrol LA, and flomax, none of which have helped me. I have a urine stream that is always split. He did a cystoscopy on me and found no scarring or no blockage. He did tell me that my bladder looked very angry and irritated. I was very surprised after my cysto when he said there was no problems.
I have what they call Neurogenic bladder. Probably very close to your description. Sometimes I have to concentrate to enpty my bladder, but if I can't go, I can self-cath. If it is done under the hygenic conditions, infections can be avoided. This is something you need to discuss with your doctor, so he can see if you need some medication. There are things out there for people like us that can help. Good Luck to you and happy peeing, when you can go...
He was initially placed on antibiotics which did not help and eventually was given several bladder medications like detrol and flomax. The medication did not help, which shocked even the urologist. He was sent to a neurologist who concluded that my husband does not have obvious signs of neurological issues. He is waiting to have an MRI of his mid back to fully rule out the neurological cause.
Now you might want to consider changing to Detrol LA and see if that has any effect. If your symptoms persist, see a urologist. You may need to undergo a cystoscopy (looking into your bladder with a lighted telescope) and a urodynamic evaluation (measuring your urine flow, bladder pressures and volumes, sensation).

Because of my low blood pressure, I could not take any of the standard bladder drugs and she put me on Flomax- we stopped that after a month because it just made it worse. I have gone to self-cathing 3-4 times a day and that has really helped cut down of the issues. I just saw the urogyno last week and she holds hope that my bladder will settle down and feel better again - she says in her MS patients that is often the case.
I went to a urologists some years ago I had a prostate bacterial infection and my prostate was swollen, because of the swollen prostate it obstructed my urithra and caused me to have urinating difficulties. The doctor gave me flomax and detrol and antibiotics.
I have tried three different medications for overactive bladder - Vesicare, Detrol LA, and Flomax. The first two had no effect whatsoever, and the third had a bad effect (made it difficult to urinate). I've been through a urodynamic test, which yielded normal results except that I get urges that are too frequent and when my bladder is not really full.
Detrol, Ditropan, Enablex, etc. My current urologist had me try Flomax, even though I don't have a flow problem. As I said, the Botox fixed my UI, but has done nothing for this pain. (It was injected only into the front wall of my bladder.) I have developed a theory, but I'm having trouble getting her (my urologist) to really listen. As part of the TURP, I know at least some of my bladder neck was removed.
For a while I've had slow to start flow and even weak at times, stop and start, and dribble-drip-dribble at the end, but the discomfort of feeling I had to go just after finishing was new. My doctor gave me another 10 days of cipro and referred me to a urologist that same day. The urologist did an ultra-sound on my bladder and said it was being emptied, but not much else. No DRE to check the prostate, just basically a question answer session. He said to come back in a month.
*prescribed pills for IC, bladder incontinence, antidepressants --elmiron, flomax, detrol and that whole array, elavil-- *penile sensitivity, no erection problems, but sex is uncomfortable because penis gets so sensitive from fighting the feeling that have to urinate... *prostate has been checked, deemed normal... *thought maybe as a last resort, that there were stones somewhere. lower body ct scan, from chest down--no stones in kidneys, ureters, epidydmis, prostate, etc... NONE.
I need to go to urinate like every 20-30 minutes. I feel strong irriation and discomfort, and feel like to go all the time. I went to see Urologist. He examined me and put me on several medicines over a period of time. I started with Cipro - antabiotics, I took flomax for couple of months. Then He put me on Vesicare, Detrol, Enablex..Its so frustrating that none of the medicines work for me.
Was in agony and went back to the doc daily. I week after surgery went to doc and he gave me Detrol LA and the stuff that turns your urine orange as well as said to take advil 3x a day. He said this should help me get through the night. By midnight I was in a full anxiety attack because I couldn't void at all and felt like I needed to go. Had to go to the ER and new cath put in. There was 300cc in bladder. Very depressed at this point, really upset. Went back to doc next afternoon.
Gender: Male Age: 22 Already Tried: Flomax, Detrol, Ditropan, Vesicare, diet/fluid modification,(work in progress) physical therapy with biofeedback/bladder retraining Thank you very much for your time and valued opinion

Well being hard headed I decided to play a bit with some and have completely weened myself of the neurontin and stopped taking the detrol and only use the flomax off and on. I still have a pill box full each day but I felt that I wanted less so I went for it. I do have more of that nerve pain from no neurontin and have to pee with little warning but I fell less tired. Oh yeah I also started taking my full dose of cymbalta in the am to get me going instead of morning and afternoon.
The doctor gave me flomax and said to see how that went. The feeling did start easing up, but didn't go away. Week by week, the feeling eased more and more. This week (March 26) i can finally say on a scale of 1-10, my discomfort is a one!! But I received a phone call from my GYN earlier this week, who told me that the urologist in Atlanta thinks I need to see a neurologist for possible MS. I've done some reading about MS.
lack of desire, I paid thousands of dollars for all types of anwsers and got none... Urologist just diagnosed him with Bladder Spasms and gave us a prescripton for Detrol. I just filled the prescription and was soo excited that some control might be in sight, then I read about the horrible hallucination info that was posted all over the internet. I would do anything to keep him dry, but those are some nasty side effects. Has your child had any bad problems on Detrol XL?
Ive had every test known to man done scopes, scans, ultra sounds and my bladder and prostate looked fine! Ive tried antibiotics, detrol for OAB, flomax for prostate, but no improvement! Resently ive started getting acupunture and it helps to relax me and so helps with symptoms, also it is good to have sometime regular (i go twice a week) focasing me on getting better, rather than my urologist telling me take X, Y & Z drugs go away for 2 months and come back if there is no improvement!
in a different way than the radioligst do. He is a pelvic pain specialist and inserted sodium pottasium into the bladder and told my daug if it brings on the same type of pain pressure than thats how they diagnosos I.C. and said she had it.Her symptoms are a feeling like she has to urinate and even when she does she still feels like she has a full bladder. the pressure from not being able to relieave hurts. She is on pain med's to help until we can find a answer but if it is I.C.
