Common Questions and Answers about Flomax side effects in women

flomax

Avatar f tn These were perscribed in place of Flomax and Celebrex in the hopes of reducing the inflammation and opening the neck of the bladder to release the urine now being held in my bladder. Should I take these meds even though the Flomax (tamsulosin) is not approved for women? Also considering my past medical history Im scared to take either meds, should I?
Avatar m tn I wake up from this and have not had good sleep in like a year. I wake up in pain and cannot move from my back to my side with out extreme pain. It doesn't go away until I get in the shower and get dressed and even then slight pain. Hard surfaces seem to be better to sleep on like the floor. Any advice please, thank you.
Avatar n tn I'm about to research the psychological connection to the passion which arouses us in order to discover how the physiological effects of ejaculation tie in. You are all seeing how ejaculation takes on different forms. No one is seeing it after masturbation. I don't even like masturbation, but the circumstances require that we test ourselves. I'm like the rest of you. No blood after masterbation.
Avatar n tn Then, when I look at the opening, it has what looks like grooves in the side of the opening that appear to start at the tip of my urethra and go back into the penis, paralell to my shaft. Looks like some sort of inflammatory process, but my urinalysis showed no leukocytes, which I thought were an inflammation marker. Ugh. There's gotta be some sort of cure. I also have noticed that I have cysts in some of my tubes in the groin area. Maybe I have some sort of blockage.
Avatar n tn I have had the warm sensation in the back/side of my upper right thigh for about 5 days now. It lasts for about 3/4 sec's then goes away. The first day it happened twice and now it happens frequently throughout the day (8-12 times). I do have health insurance and plan to make an appointment tomorrow. I will let you know the outcome of my visit.
186606 tn?1263513790 What is the most important information I should know about Flomax? Flomax can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. You may feel dizzy when getting up from a sitting or lying position. Avoid standing up too quickly to keep from falling. Avoid drinking alcohol. It may increase dizziness caused by Flomax. Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you are allergic to sulfa drugs.
Avatar n tn Uroxatral is a similar drug that may be as effective as regards voiding but has a much lower incidence of this untoward effect. Also, check out the untoward effects (side effects) of each of his medications, in particular his blood pressure meds, and see if one of these needs to be changed. Good luck! S.A. Liroff, M.D.
Avatar m tn I was a Flomax user and when I went to Iceland I tried a new product called Sagapro I now use sagapro and have given up on the Flomax which did not work well on me. Go to the web site www.sagamedicausa.com i was amazed at how it helped my swollen prostate, and it was all natural made from angelica. My friends in Iceland tell me sagapro is now outselling Flomax and you dont need a doctors note.
284078 tn?1282620298 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.
Avatar n tn He put me on cipro for 10 days but I only made it for 7 days until I was suffering from serious side effects. He then switched me to Bactrim for 10 days. I completed the Bactrim, but the symptoms still did not resolve entirely. He then put me on Doxycylene for 10 days, which helped but again did not resolve all the symptoms. I am now seeing a urologist who believes I have either a very persistent prostatitis infection or may be developing chronic prostatitis.
Avatar m tn Have been given Flomax, but afraid to use because I already have low blood pressure and am a woman. It's not approved by the FDA for use in women. Did you have side side effects from the Flomax? And how was the stent? That scares me. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Since that time other medications were required, like Cymbalta, Flomax, and a Statin among others. Almost every med has the same side effect of either gaining or losing weight. In my case, like so many others here was gaining. In order to meet my personnel challenge of maintaining 40mg, I need to switch to either the Duragesic patch or Oxicontin. Although they are part of the narcotic family, I have bad side effects with Oxicontin and more so with the patch.
Avatar n tn However he wanted go with leviquin and said that they were both in the same family. I have been on flomax .4mg and avodart .5mg daily almost from the get go.
Avatar f tn I think that the lymph node on my left side groin is swollen and I have an itch sensation in my left thigh area but no redness. My urethra swabs came back negative, but Howard said they were pointless to begin with. I still feel like I have to pee most of the time and I'm still very scared. Waiting on blood results....
Avatar n tn My Urologist never said one word to me about the possibility of RE until my one week post op appointment, which was today.Though a change in ejaculations was listed as one of the potential side effects of the procedure in the pre-OP paperwork, it certainly not addressed in detail. Like I said, I should have done my research and asked questions. I am a gay man and ejaculations are a big part of my sex life. I too feel like I won't want to live if RE ends up being the case for me.
535089 tn?1400677119 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.
1415321 tn?1306973553 They pain was also moving to my side, and then my pelvic area. Then would almost explode in my mid back on the right side. After four days of taking medicine for a kidney stone I made another appointment with my primary care physician. Now my lab results had came back from the first urine test, which revealed no traces of blood. The doctor ordered another urinalysis just to confirm, but was sure that I didn’t have a kidney stone. We also completed my annual PAP to have additional information.
Avatar n tn I started with crazy diarreah all day-every 20 minutes or so. In the early evening the most severe pain on my left side and lower back. Called an ambulance, said it sounded like kidney stones. Took an ambulance, plane and another ambulance to a hospital in the city-I live in the jungle in Costa Rica. The x-rays and ultrasound show a kidney stone. On the other side it also shows some white spots that may be calcium or other small stones. The doctor said the diarreah was unrelated.
Avatar m tn Now I have pains in my side/back ever so often. I removed the stent on a Thursday 2 days later still having pain. Does this sound normal?
Avatar f tn 5D in the corneal plane. I haven't noticed any obvious significant residual astigmatism effects so far, so it appears to be close to the correct axis of rotation.
Avatar m tn It is not the cause of it. Stress and adrenaline are normal effects in the body, but the result of whatever caused this injury shows up now, with this as its trigger in part. Before this condition existed, it simply didn't exert change on the penis that much before, so nobody noticed it that much. I think everyone can probably relate to stress causing an erectile issue, but it is usually short-lived...not persistent. 3.
Avatar n tn mitral valve prolapse (no meds), hypothyroidism (synthroid), depression (Wellbutrin), anxiety (Xanax--occasionally), and recurrent UTIs for which I'm on a maintenance antibiotic and flomax---just in case that provides any clues. Oh... and I HAVE been very stressed over the last few years, to the point where I've been concerned it might affect my health.
Avatar n tn She was admitted in the hospital and Dr Hibner @ St.Joesph's IN Arizona said he diagnosis I.C. 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.
Avatar n tn These medications can have serious side effects on the liver, so you should be checked regularly during the treatment period. Often, a fungal prostate infection is accompanied with other non specific symptoms like persistant scalp itch, athteltes foot, toenail and fingernail discolorations, face becoming greasy, unexplained hair loss or thinning, unexplained fatigue and other non specific symptoms, Again do a google search.
