Flomax+Cialis

I have to report it is working great. I'm only taking half the dose prescribed (.4mg Flomax and a 5mg Cialis every other day). Only waking up to use the restroom about once or twice a night. The Flomax by itself quickly lost it's effectiveness. No side effects except for a little blushing from the Cialis. And I'm drinking a lot of water due to the kidney stones. I try not to consume liquids in the evening.
The Cialis is a little pricy at about $3.50 a pill but I take one every other day.

Just remember that Flomax has long term effect on your eyes. If you have to have eye surgery at any point, make sure that you inform the surgeon.

Thanks for the tip. I'm trying to take the minimum dose that still works. Some nights better than others. Here you are required to bring your meds to every DR appt.

What does Saw Palmetto have to do with your PSA?

I heard on the PRI doctor show....Dr. Zorba about Saw Palmetto. He says he does not believe it helps and does not suggest using it, but a guy called in and said it helped him so Zorba said if it works for you great.

I used to take it but now do not. I didn't see any change.

I'm glad it's working for you. This is all relatively new to me in the last few years. I went on meds just in the last few mos for the frequent urination. Now I drinking a lot(more) fluids to hopefully prevent future kidney stone so more urination.
