1609990_tn?1298165275 Now that my urologist says my prostate is reduced to normal size and no longer interferes with urine flow, is there any reason why I can not stop using finasteride? I have stopped tamsulosin and saw palmetto extract.
Avatar_n_tn Is male potency possible while taking tamsulosin and finasteride?
Avatar_m_tn Hi, How long have you been on the finasteride for baldness? Finasteride has certain side effects, one of which is erectile dysfunction. Even small amounts of finasteride can cause this side effect. Other medication for an enlarged prostate to minimize urinary frequency include tamsulosin. You can try Flomax or Urotel and see how you respond to these agents which work at the bladder level.
Avatar_n_tn Treatment depends on the cause and if it is due to BPH then it includes medicines like Tamsulosin or Finasteride or surgically with prostatectomy or transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Older patients with ongoing problems may require continued intermittent self catheterization. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar_n_tn After emergency I took oxybutynin, tamsulosin, doc-q-lace and finasteride for a couple of days. Have not taken any meds in a couple of days.

Avatar_m_tn After urological examination, I was prescribed Tamsulosin and Finasteride once daily for BPH and OAB.
Avatar_m_tn Currently on Jalyn (dutasteride & tamsulosin) daily which has worked very well in reducing BPH symtoms. Before the Jayln, I was taking just the FloMax which was not really satisfactory. Would like to eliminate the Flomax. The Proscar (Finasteride) has an available generic, but the Avodart would require staying with the brand and its higher costs. Is there really any advantage of Proscar vs Avodart?
Avatar_m_tn Obstruction is a possibility also hinted, afaik, by a large urea/creatinine ratio in the urine. I am taking tamsulosin 0.4 mg/d and testing with my doctor 0.8 mg/d to check PVR. I have had regularly and also recently DREs which were all normal. I am 56, otherwise healthy, moderately active, fit and eating a well balanced diet with relatively high protein intake (Zone).
Avatar_m_tn He mentioned training but I felt he was a bit skeptic. Do you know more about training? He typically would recommend tamsulosin + finasteride for 6 months after which, if no effect, TURP would be the gold standard. I questioned about other methods such as TUBD, TUNA, TUMT, TUIP and laser such as Nd:YAG laser vaporization and more recently the green light photosensitive vaporization. He said greenlaser has the potential to replace long term TURP.

Avatar_m_tn huge PVR and potential complications. No apparent effect on the PVR or large doses of tamsulosin (2x0.4mg) and prostate too small for finasteride/dutasteride. • Surgery went very well. Surgeon very well experimented and cautious (2000+ interventions) • So far one complication: had to be re-catheterized the very same day they removed the 3 ways surgery cath as I could not urinate at all. • 19 days after, I am drinking a lot (2-3l fluids), taking normal dose of tamsulosin in the evening (0.

Avatar_m_tn adrenergic receptor antagonists) provide symptomatic relief of BPH symptoms. Available drugs include doxazosin, terazosin, alfuzosin and tamsulosin. Older drugs, phenoxybenzamine and prazosin are not recommended for treatment of BPH.[5] Alpha-blockers relax smooth muscle in the prostate and the bladder neck, and decrease the degree of blockage of urine flow. Alpha-blockers may cause ejaculation back into the bladder (retrograde ejaculation).
Avatar_m_tn Both times I failed, and had to be recath’d The third test is coming up soon. I’ve been on Flomax/Tamsulosin and Finasteride for nearly 2 months now, My current catheter is 18 Fr Foley. I empty about 1500cc per day. But starting a few weeks ago I can also urinate, under control, OUTSIDE the catheter 25 to 50cc each time I feel the need to urinate. It’s not strong urge, but I do feel it. At those times all I do is sit down on the toilet and relax the (sphincter urethrae?

Avatar_m_tn Kaur, I've had an enlarged prostate since I was very young . So I take finasteride and tamsulosin which is causing my ejaculation to go to the bladder. Ive asked my primary doctor to recommended vasectomy so at least sperm won't go in there. He says there is no research that it will help. After sex I have a hard time urinating.
Avatar_m_tn Like others here I thought ok lets try some alpha blockers (like Tamsulosin). Guess what , it works ! About 5 hours after taking one, I usually get a much better hang which last about 36 hours. Sometimes however it doesn't works so well, why ? I have no clue.
