Side effects of flomax in women

Common Questions and Answers about Side effects of flomax in women


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 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 When you are lying on your back, put a pillow under neath your knees, this will tilt your pelvis slightly, enough to take some pressure of of your back. Also, when you lay on your side, put a pillow in between your knees, this will help as well. I have invested in a $2000 bed just so I can have the proper support. Not saying that you need to spend that much money, thats not the only reason why i bought the bed, but find a bed that is mostly firm but still comfortable.
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.
1415321 tn?1306973553 I felt a weird pressure on the left side of my abdomen and a fluttery sensation just on the left side of my lower abdomen. I also noticed lots of pain in my lower back, and lots of abdominal bloating no matter what I ate, what time I ate or just in general. At first It thought of gallstones, then of appendicitis, kidney stones, liver problems but I never tied it to my ovaries.
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.
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.
186606 tn?1263513790 Just be aware about some of the side effects such as getting dizzy when standing up suddenly. I took Flomax briefly and experienced it the first couple of days. It's due to a temporary reduction in blood pressure and therefore the blood pressure warning. I assume someone with very low blood pressure might have a problem.
284078 tn?1282620298 So, if you are taking Topamax or getting ready to increase you dose or considering starting it - please, please take my advice and remember that it can cause sudden worsening of your vision, and if an attack of narrow angle glaucoma starts, you can develop severe eye pain, extreme headache, nausea, vomiting and nearly complete loss of vision.
Avatar m tn next is to pull it off the shelf. I was on Levaquin for 5 days and have experienced much of the same side effects of others.
Avatar n tn Regretably, I was weak and gave in to the advances of an attractive older (46 y.o.) female co-worker who had been flirting with me on and off for over a year. We engaged in unprotected oral and vaginal sex on several occasions over a period of about 3 weeks. Ever since I have been riddled with guilt and fear about what I had done, but could never bring myself to tell my wife.
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 Chronic Prostatitis --- commonly used to describe a collection of symptoms characterized by the presence of pain or discomfort in the perigenital area (perineum, groin, testicular region) often radiating to the lower back or the inside of the thigh. It would be better to have an ultrasound done (TRUS), as it would give an idea about your condition. Have an urine culture done as UTI can also lead to chronic prostatitis.
Avatar f tn He asked if I read about all the side effects of the anti-virals? Again- he told me he does not have a test for recent exposure. I'm kinda lost at this point...
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.
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.
Avatar n tn Also i find somthing odd, i was with another partner and my symptoms were improving i did have my sexual problems but they were not getting worse but improving, my next relationship after this i had a round 2 of what happened to me in my first sexual experience, could i be allergic to certain types of women? sounds weird i know.
Avatar n tn I, too have been having these horrible episodes for the past few months. I am usually woken up in the middle of the night because I feel very hot (not feels more the blood in my veins is hot) and a little sick to my stomach.. Then the cramping starts and I get diarrhea for hours. Sometimes it is accompanied by nausea and sometimes not.
Avatar m tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. Pain after stent removal can be due to recurrence of stones, stricture in the ureter or inflammation. I would suggest that you get a ultrasound done to check the possibilities. In case of stricture immediate action needs to be taken to prevent scarring. I would suggest that you visit your urologist and discuss the above mentioned possibilities for further advise. Best.
Avatar n tn This just started happening in my left foot in the last couple of days. I am a 40 yr old mom of 3, extremely active, working out 3-4 times a week. This intermittent vibrating in my foot is very unnerving. Have you got any answers? Nothing hurts... so, it is hard for me to think it is a back problem.
Avatar f tn test earlier this year where I used a contact lens I had on hand in my right eye for distance correction and left my other eye uncorrected to use for close up. I had not worn the pair of contacts that I had since fall of 2015. Of course my close up vision in my left eye was being affected by the cataract, but it gave me enough of a feel to realize I still don't like monovision. I tried it years ago with contacts in both eyes and did not like it much then either.
Avatar n tn I also have had an extreme pressure in my bladder with a normal urine analysis. My doctor stated that there are several urinary tract irritants that may have caused it. Caffeine, calcium, citruses, and alcohol. Good luck ladies, I feel your pain.
Avatar n tn Can Any one give me some suggestions!!! Though I never had any sexual exposure neither male nor with female till date but from past 9 months i am having urethritis which is not going away with Urologist prescribed antibiotics. I am not a diabetic.
