Flomax and diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Flomax and diabetes

flomax

The urge frequency was sometimes unbearable!! Anyhow started on Flomax, and in just one day noticed the frequency (6-8x day to 4x) and urgency diminished. If no BPH...how is the Flomax working??? Thanks!
It can be caused both by neurologic abnormalities (MS, diabetes) and as a side effect of some meds and Flomax is one. So, the only part that I was not able to find any information on was the pain you are also having. That question should be put to a urologist. Given the abnormal neurology you also may have, I wonder if it is a painful spasm of some kind associated with climax. You might want to look at retrograde ejaculation in general and see if it matches what you are experiencing.
The few risk factors of erectile dysfunction are advanced age, diabetes mellitus, smoking, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, nerve or spinal cord damage, depression and anxiety etc. The few common side effects of Flomax are abnormal ejaculation, decreased sex drive, runny or stuffy nose, or sore throat. Your physician will determine the best option based upon your evaluation and medical history. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
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 was also placed on Flomax and meds to shrink the prostate for the last 5 months. I'm now off the meds and the doctor says the prostate is fine. My penis is still numb and cold. Erections are few and far between...and only with a lot of work from the wife and/or cialis. My doctor says don't worry about it...you have ED and wants me to go on daily cialis.
This time about a woman on Topamax for 7 days who seemed to have lost almost all her vision 12 hours after increasing her dose per her doctor's instructions. Some quick thinking sparked me to ask if she could see up close and lo and behold while she was blind as a bat in the distance, she could see the tiniest print about 6 inches in front of her nose. She had developed an acute myopic shift from a choroidal effusion which pushed the lens/iris diaphram forward.
I called my eurologist and he put me on Flomax , which I have been taking for two days I have been on avodart for six months I was tested for UTI's and found to be negative Should I be concerned about the increase in frequent urination ?
I then started having daily numbness and tingly in my hands and feet which sometimes spread into my arm and leg. It last consistently for about a month and a half. My primary care doc also mentioned MS. She did multiple rounds of blood work looking to eliminate other possibilities (Lupus and other autoimmune diseases that can show signs in blood tests). My blood work was fine. I was also feel extreme fatigue/exhaustion every day.
He said maybe the bladder neck is tight from stress and prescribed Flomax. I didn't take it right away. -was feeling a little better. But I think I took too much Advil after the cystoscopy because, on a flight to Japan, I had a lot of blood in my urine very suddenly.Stopped the Advil and the blood went away, but I was pretty much back to square one with the urgency. So I started the Flomax. I think the Flomax helped with the flow, but the urge was and is still constant.
Causes of retrograde ejaculation include diabetes, damage or injury to the prostate such as due to prostate surgery, and certain medications, such as alpha blockers used to treat enlarged prostate. Surgical removal of the prostate (prostatectomy). Surgical removal of the bladder (cystectomy). Radiation therapy directed at the pelvic area, such as for prostate cancer."

I am on Avanza and Antenex for my nerves, I also have diabetes. Stay positive and let me know how you feel.
Hi, It is tough to determine what the pain is coming from, not being able to examine you and review your history. But if it is from Diabetes and a form of neuropathy, you should be able to get started on some medications to help ease/stop the pain. You certainly should not be in this degree of discomfort all the time. It is more likely to be neuropathy if your diabetes has not been well controlled.
I just hope I can find a doctor that can help me and not push a bunch of drugs that have all the wrong side affects and the wrong results. I've been on Flomax ( stuffed up my sinuses so bad I couldnt breath) and a couple others I cant remember that I dont remember working and had the surgery that I figured would cure all, but doesnt seem to be the answer either. May be I just have a over senitive prostate or bladder, I dont know. Well we'll see what happens.
Would that cause the problem with the foamy urine and drippy ejaculations ? I told my doctor about it and he just says, I'm strange. I saw a Urologist and he gave me flomax, but I had to stop it because I was have bad side effects from it. The flomax was before the drippy ejaculation problem started.
You would need to insert a catheter into your bladder several times per day to completely empty your bladder and then remove it and go about your business. In some women I have given drugs such as Flomax (or other alpha blockers) with success, though the pharmacist will question why this drug for prostatic obstruction is being prescribed for you. Good luck. S.A.Liroff, M.D. theterization also is quite effective.
Back on June 11th I felt like I needed to pee all the time, no burning or hurting, but a frequent need to pee so I started taking azo pills for a few days and felt better within 2 days and for the next 2 days I felt great then my husband and I had sex and a few hours later we went to Lowes to shop and all of a sudden I felt like I needed to pee again so I went to the bathroom and I couldn't go and for the next 15 to 20 minutes I went to the bathroom a few more times and just could not go hardly
I have had blood/urine tests and was told that everything is normal- no STDs, diabetes etc. I went to my doctor within 2 weeks of this starting and I'm continually told that I have nothing wrong with me. I've had a sonogram of my testicles (normal) and a digital prostate exam (told normal size).
If I masterbate, I have to do it hard to stay hard and ejaculate. When I ejaculate now, it feels numb and aches afterwards. On the Levtira, sometimes I can hardly feel myself cumming. My doctor said to stop drinking diet cola as the caffeine will make my bladder malfunction and increase the BPH symptoms. When I urinate on a full bladder, I usually have a "dead spot" ie numbness for a bit. That has carried over to my ejaculatons. The Pain and lack of feeling is bothersome and new.
Substances Causing False Positives According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive results in the most widely administered urine test.
Six months later I went to a GP and he diagnosed me with prostatitis. He prescribed Cipro and Flomax. This helped for a while, but eventually it stopped. Next I went to a urologist. He took a history and did a dre. He said my prostate felt inflamed and I did indeed have prostatitis. The pain was quite severe at this point and I was having problems urinating. He prescribed doxycycline and flomax. This seemed to work for a little while. I returned three months later and told him of my status.
The last one happened within hours of taking a diet pill (phentermine). I am currently on flomax and while that seems to help a little, after 4 days of not taking it, my conditions immediatley went back to the point where I really noticed a decrease in urine flow. I noticed that a post in another forum said that when he went to urinate and farted, his urine flow would stop, that also happens to me.
Neurologist was of NO help, and he has kidney pain and his renal numbers have dropped this past week. Something is attacking his system and finally his nephrologist has referred him to the Mayo Clinic here in Scottsdale. His test for Sjodger's syndome (sorry, wrong spelling) came back neg too since one of his docs thought it could be this. He is a wreck over this and is frustrated. Lupus test also came back neg. Can anyone comment on this? Thank you.
I am 57 years old with Type II diabetes and have a severe E.D. problem. I have seen 3 different urologists. I have taken Viagar, Cialis, Levitra, Muse, used the pump and other medications injected but with no good results. I have been told that there is plenty of blood flow according to Doppler exam. I have taken Flomax for several years and have heard that it can be a cause for E.D. I also had lower back surgery in 1997.
I have jst been to another doctor as l had blood tests performed (not for kidneys they were general well being tests etc),my calcium level,diabetes,cholestoral etc etc everything was normal and great. Doctor therefore doubts it's a calcium stone and suspects uric acid stone?? He agrees that l have definately passed a stone/stones and that the 8mm one is still there and in his oppinion he says it could hve been there for years andy may never move.
-Left hand/arm numbness -hands/feet turn ice cold -legs fall asleep while sitting on floor, in tub, or indian style -Lightheaded upon standing -Knees feel stiff after sitting and have to stand for 30-60 sec.
He then performed a cystoscopy and found an inflamed veru montanum and urethritis. He prescribed doxycicline and Flomax for 8 weeks. That was 3 days ago.I filled the the prescription right away. Now here comes the big problem. Since yesterday when I have sex or when I masturbate there is little or no ejaculate. I am very worried because this has never happened to me before. Here come the questions: 1. Is lack of ejaculate a side effect of Flomax? 2. If not, what can be causing this problem.
I had a serum testosterone test and I can't remember the number, but it was a healthy level. That's where the testing stopped, as I don't have medical insurance currently. The dry orgasm has been constant: usually no semen output, and maybe a measly little drop if I'm lucky (pretty low for a 22 year old guy). What are possible causes, when it's always been like that?
It does not have to be an Endo, just a good thyroid doctor. Many Endos specialize in diabetes, not thyroid, and many do not meet my definition of a good thyroid doctor because they have the "Immaculate TSH Belief". Rather than waiting for all that time until July 6, and maybe finding out that the doctor doesn't fit your need, I think I would call there now and ask to speak to a nurse and then ask her these questions. 1.
I would assume that things like a urinary tract infection as well as prostate problems have been ruled out by the urologists. You may want to consider systemic diseases - including both diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus - each which can increase the frequency of urination. Diabetes mellitus can be evaluation via sugar levels in the blood. Diabetes insipidus is a disorder where the hormone that controls water absorption is impaired.
enlarged prostate. Given Flomax and amoxicillin. (also, one aspirin 325 mg., Benicar HCT, and zocor) No other tests. Followup visit 2 weeks later: Dipstick negative for infection (was still sent off for culture. No results yet). Post void: 7 oz. BUT still burning everytime urinating. AND still erection problems. Prescribed Levaquin 500mg ($10/tablet!) for 10 days. No other tests were suggested. Question: What will the doctor be looking for next?
