Tamsulosin not working

Common Questions and Answers about Tamsulosin not working

flomax

This problem is usually treated with the use of oral analgesics(pain killers) and tamsulosin is thought to play an important role in the relief of the pain and unfortunately how tamsulosin produces a relief is also not known. I’ll suggest you to discuss the same with your urologist. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind regards.

If there is no obstruction and the bladder is not working, a TURP would do not good and should not be done. In that case you might be instructed in how to pass a catheter into your bladder yourself to drain the urine a few times a day. That is the "worst case" scenario, and may sound difficult, but is learned easily by many patients with poorly functioning bladders, including children born with spinal cord abnormalities.
The Flomax was not working very well, initially and my MD switched me to Jalyn, mostly because of the CombaT Study which looked at combination regimens for BPH. The Jalyn (Flomax & Avodart) does a GREAT job and I am pretty much symptom free. My thought was that switching to Avodart alone would leave me with one less drug going into my system, keep my good results, and, hopefully reduce the IFIS risk.
The endocrinologist said I did not have diabetes insipidus and told me he did not have any other ideas. The urologist then ordered urodynamics, which showed nothing unusual except for muscle tension of the urinary sphincter muscle (he diagnosed it as "sphincter dyssynergia"). The urologist prescribed terazosin 2 mg once per day, which I have been taking for almost 2 weeks with no effect on frequency or urgency so far.
It showed my right kidney is enlarged and working hard. I had by this time started to get some discomfort in my right side and lower back. Since then, you can feel a swelling in that area on my side at the bottom of the rib and now the left side has started to hurt too. It also has some swelling there, but not as much as the right side. I am constantly tired, fell sick and have discomfort in my sides, back and lower abdomen.
Prior to me ending up self catheterizing, I used to keep some folded up toilet paper toward the front of my underwear when I was in formal situations. Working as a heavy duty mechanic, I did not have to worry because my coveralls would hide my clothing anyway. Even being a very young boy yet, I hated wearing underwear and often went without. It was in my mid 20's that I really had to watch for forming a wet spot in my pants. I'm afraid that you will have to deal with it as well as you can.
The one month Cipro regime was not helpful at all, the discomfort and burning sensation on my penis skin , back pain, urgency to urinate and bladder pain forced me to visit another urologist and he prescribed 3 months of doxycycline ! and I took it all. no sex any more just masturbation to help prostate fluid come out,still no avail.
Hopefully,other treatments are being studied now for post transplant patients that will not require ribavirin. I do not want to discourage others about this new treatment. My husband is unique to say the least and his problems with ribavirin may not be norm for others.
cfm 2) EMG to check for nerve signs EMG (electromyogram) can detect abnormal muscle electrical activity in conditions such as neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerves, herniated discs etc 3) A spinal MRI, looking for any structural abnormalities, cns lesions etc I would like to take a step back for a moment, and look at what you have been dx with, both your visual and bladder issues could be seperate issues unrelated to anything in particular, both are not typically common in MS.
Only the Alpha Blockers worked, of which there are several types, Tamsulosin (Flomax), Doxazosin, Terazosin and others. I'm not in a relationships right now, but I do also dread having to strip off in front of a woman, when I do find one. I guess I'll have to take the alpha blockers or Viagra beforehand. Doctors don't have a clue about this. I have asked several Urologists, and they just say it's normal !
the dancer touched my penis now and then for around 10 minutes. i was not allowed to touch her. i did not ejaculate, and i did not experience an orgasm. a few minutes after the lap dance had finished, i went to the toilet because i had to urinate. i urinated blood and a clot came out in the end. like i said, i did not have sex, masturbate, or ejaculate. i tested for std's when my problem began a year ago and everything was fine.
