How long does it take flomax to work

Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take flomax to work


I had my first attack with a kidney stone. It came on suddenly and was so painful I thought I was going to die. Went to the hospital ER and was taken in immediately. I did not receive any pain medication until the blood tests were evaluated. the pain meds only took the edge off the pain but it was a welcomed relief. My pain was a 10+ and pain management brought it down to a 3 to 4 but what a relief it was. After approximately 3 hours in the ER the pain stopped.
With these techniques the complication rate is now only very slightly higher than normal. the problem FIS is unique in that it doesn't seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> correlate with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> much Flomax, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> its been taken and even if it was stopped. Thus a man taking Flomax and finding it helps his enlarged prostate symptoms should not stop Flomax if he develops a cataract. Flomax does not cause cataracts or other eye problems.
I've heard taking Flomax and hour or 2 before will soften the prostate and allow the antibiotic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> better penetrate the prostate? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it matter if I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> them in the morning or evening, or is the rule just be consistent? Thanks again.
I called a specialist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> ask <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> much it would cost without health insurance. they estimated that it would be $3,000 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> $7,000. Not just expensive, but prohibitively expensive. I’m from the Philippines, and my cousin is a doctor there, so I called him. He was appalled at the price that I was quoted, and told me to go to the Philippines to get these tests. Here’s why: Each of those two tests cost $20. For a total of $40, or the price of a cheap meal for two in the U.S.
As far as which drugs you can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span>, that is something you and your doctor are going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> figure out. Your doctor knows your medical problems. All drugs do not work on all people. Many people have good results from some drugs and yet have poor results from others. Your doctor should know any other medical problems that you have and which drugs may be the best possible drugs to take instead of the drugs you are now taking. One size does not fit all.
have been prescribed zoloft but thought that before I start this 9 months course of medication I would exhaust all other options... <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> anybody know anything about serelax? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>... read up about it and it looks great. Has anyone got some real personal experiance with the stuff?
So I thought it would <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>, but it was slowly getting worse and worse. then Sunday, it was back at its worst again. Constantly feeling like I have to go to the bathroom. I'm in such discomfort trying to fall asleep, it takes me a couple hours!! So today I called the doctor again and told him how its not getting better and I wanted to see a Urologist. does anyone have any indication to what I may have?
) Her ocular pressure was actually only slightly elevated and with cessation of the topamax, her pressure returned to normal in a day, while it took over a week for her vison <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> return <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> normal. It was extremely impressive the way the lens moved forward initially. After a week, the lens moved back to normal position and the eye looked completely different as if from another person. It was really something I will never forget.
I had called them and told them to read it and I would be in today <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get it back. When I stopped I also dropped off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the cardio doc a copy of the esophageal spasm/cardiac spasm information along with a quick note from me. That will make his day to see me trying to play doctor still - I just can't seem to let this connection thing rest until I can get a reasonable scenario worked out in my head about what happened to my body. Stop #3 this morning was the urogynecologist.
they get EVERYTHING that is offered while I'm here with my son and my poor husband that works 12-13hr days (I thank god that he does have a job) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> care of us. IT STEAMS ME UP.. I mean I worked at a bank for 10yrs before we decided it was more cost effective for me to stay home. Our child care bill was $200 per week ($800.00 per month not including food that was an extra $50 per week). My husband is the bread winner.
the urologist prescribed me Flomax and Xatral and he told <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the one doing better job. It is looking for me that Flomax is doing better, but I am concerned about the Flomax and the PSA value. Also, I used to take Flomax for a while but when I stopped it the symptoms coming back. the concern for me is the PSA velocity but my GP and urologist does not pay to much attention to it.
Hi, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> have you been taking advil? Advil has been known <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> worsen prostate enlargement. "People with heart disease, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, narrow angle glaucoma, or difficulty in urination due to enlargement of the prostate gland should not take this medication unless directed by a doctor"
Not only is it difficult <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> distinguish heroin or morphine abuse from codeine, but dietary poppy seeds can give a strong positive result for urinary opiate of several days duration that is confirmed by GC/MS analysis". Nyquil Nighttime Cold Medicine will test positive for Methadone up to two days. Antibiotics. Certain newly developed antibiotics have cause positive samples urine tests. Ampicillin is suspect. Amoxicillin has caused positives for cocaine.
first of all as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> as the stone remains in the kidney, it usually <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not cause a problem. If it is or you have a chronic infection, then it needs to be treated. Otherwise it may stay in the kidney and never drop into the ureter. In that case, it can live there. I will die with many of my stones still in my kidney. If the stones is in the ureter, IT NEEDS to BE REMOVED WITH OR WITHOUT INSURANCE. A stone in the ureter can cause obstruction of the kidney.
I wish you all the luck in the world that this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not turn out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be what you think it may be and that you can continue on as is. Please be patient for a response and keep in touch!
My issue is hesitancy. I can feel like I need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> urinate but am unable <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> do so. It can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a while for me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start, and once I do I often don't empty my bladder completely. I manage my issues by taking Flomax, a drug intended to treat enlarged prostate. there is nothing wrong with my prostate, but MS makes my body think there is.
I have not seen any improvement at all in my flow...<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for a obvious difference? What if this does not work at all? He also gave me a booklet on Prostiva RF...which he said might me the next step. He is quite concerned on the size of the prostate as well as the very limited flow that I have. So my question is...what are next steps if the uroxtral does nothing to improve my condition? Also...should I be concerned that this is occuring while I am relatively young?
the MS counselor is 60 miles away, and hubby doesn't drive there on his own, we'd have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> days off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>. Not sure how to proceed. Can meds be helpful if lesions aren't worsening but symptoms are? how much do you pay per month for meds? Do you have cognitive deficits? Do you work? Maybe it's better and happier for my husband to be in denial than face the possible reality.... Advice?
the pain went away for a week or so and then came back, and I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the uro.. it was in my bladder stabbing me, and I couldn't stand it anymore, she did find blood and bacteria in my urine and said by next week ,, we would need a KUB to make sure it's out. I haven't been feeling well.. flu like symptoms..and actually have been really depressed, crying alot, fatigued even more than usual..
pain meds aren't working...sometimes it eases the pain a lil but never takes it away...i am curious as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> this is going to go on? Is this something I should go to Er about or give it time to go away?
Lupo, I'm 55 years old and never had a serious illness (I was a bicyclist for many years) until 7 weeks ago when I was found to have renial retention that was determined to be due to the bladder sphincter muscle not opening sufficiently for many weeks (painful starting), and after I was drained of a large amount of urine my kidneys, thank the Lord, returned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> normal, however, on returning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> everyone (myself included) noted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> thin I looked, and in fact in just that 2 week period I had
It is not serious because it is easy to treat usually you just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> some antibiotic for a few days and leave it alone for a couple of week for it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> heal. but in your case an injection might needed since it's been going on for a while.
I was very close <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> asking someone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> emergency. It was very scary. I've been extremely stiff ever since, and I currently move slower than an arthritic 80 year old man. I want everyone reading this to know that this does not mean that I have M.S. I know the regulars already know that, but I hope something can be gleamed from what I have been through the past four years. Self-diagnosis is extremely dangerous, and self-treatment even moreso.
I have very bad back pain right at the bottom of my spine. I believe at this point it is due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> not getting out all of my stool. I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> Mirlax to help with constipation. About once a week I have a decent bowel movement, but can't quite get it all out. This causes me to leek stool through out the next couple of days when I bend over or sometimes just when I walk up stairs. When I reported this to my Neurologist he sent me to a Urologist, who now has me taking 0.
I've heard that even though my partner tested negative- she could have still passed the virus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me? After reading about this virus, it scares me more as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> "elusive" it is. It hides and reappears, has symptoms/doesn't have symptoms. Scary. I'm mainly concerned because herpes or not- I can't understand why I've been in pain or uncomfortable for so long.
Hi Dave, I have what I've been told are "lumps of fatty tissue" on my forearms and thighs and that they are nothing to be concerned with. Some are as big as the size of a quarter - and some are smaller. they are not painful and they move around when I push down on them. That being said, I think any lump is worth a mention to the dr. Have you checked out the MS Health Pages? the link is on the upper right hand side of the screen.
That sounds a lot better than drinking a lot of water and waiting around for nature <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> its course. they will be able <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> well the bladder muscles and the other parts of the system work together to achieve healthy urination. I asked her a number of questions that other members here might have. these were about what else might cause urine retention, assuming that's what's going on. She said not much other than MS can, in a female patient with MS and with otherwise healthy plumbing.
