Tamsulosin not working

Common Questions and Answers about Tamsulosin not working


Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn and retention of urine , awaiting any non surgical treatment and medication advice . ? Am on a medication of Urimax/Tamsulosin 4mg per day for last two years plus,any side effects as the day i miss out on the medicine the urine flow only drips. would be eager to know NY ALTERNATE MEDICINES???
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn rss=1 Synercid is the only medicine in the US that is close to Pristinamycin but is not allowed for use for anything but strep and staph infections, plus it has to be injected daily by IV, which makes it impossible to get legally. That is pretty stupid since you can buy virginiamycin in 50 pound bags to mix in with animal feed which is basically the same stuff. Pristinamycin is apparently used quite a bit in Europe for Mycoplasma Genitalium.

Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn Gatifloxacin did not help and as such doctor prescribed levofloxacin for another 10 days .None of the two antibiotics and Tamsulosin Hydrochloride did not show any signs of relief . I saw another uro after that and he prescribed moxifloxacin hydrochloride based on that urine culture test along with tolterodine tartrate for 7 days. I have been taking em for 3 days now and do not see any relief . I am really worried as my symptoms have only gotten worse after cystoscopy .
Avatar f tn not everything has been ruled out yet, my gut + my symptoms tell me it's not Fibro, therefore I am apprehensive about taking this medication when I have not been diagnosed properly. Does this make sense? I have not taken any of this medication yet. I am only on daily thyroid meds,had a total thyroidectomy last June, due to autoimmune thyroid disease. I also take a daily supplement of Calcium,Magnesium, and Vit D due to low Calcium levels from parathyroid 'bruising' during surgery.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn my body will not cooperate! Anything I can do? Is there anything that can help? VERY FRUSTRATING!
535089 tn?1400677119 Not only is it difficult to 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.
Avatar m tn you will know it! Again....GET BACK ON THE WATER.....believe it or not...having sex at this point will help....lol....or the massager...but the water will flush it out...use a strainer to catch them for at least 2 days as you have broken the stones down to small fragments now....I've had them pass in clusters of 10 - 15 pieces at a time doing this method ... they were in size from sand on the beach to dust partials....I hope this method of mine helps you feel better...it always helps me...
Avatar m tn 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 !
Avatar f tn In your condition you need a hepatologist not simply a GI, and I would not wait until October with those symptoms. If you are near San Diego, the esteemed Dr. Gish is at UCSD. I would encourage you to make an appointment. This is a link for his information. http://ucsd.photobooks.com/directory/profile.asp?setsize=10000&dbase=main&pict_id=2406732 If that is too far, you can take a look at this list of recommended hepatologists from our members: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn Do not get prostate surgery. You will never ever be able to ejaculate normally again. Its pretty screwed up. Your doctor may mention it, but will not have a discussion regarding the implications. I hate my dr - I wish that I could do it to him.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 2nd, 3rd, and 4th diagnosis on the right side turns out to be not mucosal neuroma but also unspecific inflammation consistent to inflamed pappilitis. Now I dont know what I actually have cos a gov hospital lost some of the specimens I sent for 2nd diagnosis but assured that the result was inflammation. But now I have burning sensation on my palate, gums and sides of my tongue, they call it burning mouth syndrome. Went thro diabetic, autoimmune, tests all negative.
