Even with my prescribed medication I am still getting up every 2-3 hours to urinate. Stop drinking water early has not stopped the urgency only to cause cramps in my legs. I haven't had a uninterrupted night sleep in over 5 years.
Benign Hypertrophy of Prostate (BPH)
I’m in the same boat. Urologist wants to do Greenlight laser to remove some of my prostate. Not happening at 64 yrs.
I'm 67 I haven't been given any options for a procedure that didn't carry more risks than solutions.
I have talked to friends that have been TURPED. Another was Greenlight laser but won’t disclose anything. A good TURPed friend says he pisses like a racehorse now, doesn’t wake up at night…but climaxes fine but are dry heaves and I won’t live that way.
Only I don’t take Rx. I take about 3500-5000 mg of Saw Palmetto each day…about 7-10 pills/day plus 2 pills/day of Prostate Pro. I eat a lot of Mazzeti’s tamed sliced jalapeños…Have to say, I get up 2/night no matter what because of habit, mostly 3-4 without jalapeños.
none of the herbal treatments have worked for me. I'm on 2 prescriptions to treat the enlarged prostate. Find it has improved the stream, but still have the urge to urinate every couple of hours.
I was prescribed FloMax and all of the others. They all concluded the same side effect: Libido loss and dry heaves, if lucky. Stopped Rx permanently, never going there.
Doc told me my prostate is about 70 grams. Not sure where that sits in BPH world.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) frequent urination due to inlarged prostate.

What side effects you see with flomax? And how long you guys take it?
biggest is lack of sex drive ang ejaculate into bladder.
What is the best brand for saw palmetto in the market? Does anybody recommend any brand?
Is it okay to use saw palmetto and flomax at the same time?
Went “The Peoples Chemist”. Expensive but pure.
