    I take alfuzosin and I prefer it to Flomax. All of these alpha blockers have a tendency to lower your blood pressure. Do you already have very low blood pressure? I wouldn't take it at the same time if you are taking low-dose cialis. I'd be very careful if you're using regular dose Viagra or similar. Alfuzosin doesn't appear to cause floppy iris syndrome to the extent that Flomax does. This is a concern for cataract surgery.

    I was prescribed flomax and other traditional prostate BPH drugs. However the side effects we're not tolerable for me. Through this site others recommended alfuzosin 10 mg which my urologist never mentioned. I got a prescription about two weeks ago and I'm taking about 5 mg a day to experiment with the effect. I find it tolerable and actually helping my BPH symptoms. If anyone knows of any other good medications strategies or anything else to deal with BPH that would be great. A lot of guys that respond on here really know their stuff and help newcomers like me.

    My doc told me these are the most mild and least likely to cause retrograde ejaculation of those type of drug for BPH.

    I tried it but unfortunately had a hives reaction which is specific to my case.

    It apparently has the least side effect profile of those drugs. My doc told me that this is the one that he uses for himself!

    Best of luck!

      Unlike Tamsulosin it does not cause Floppy Iris Syndrome that can make any future cataract surgery more difficult.

    Take the first dose or so last thing at night.

    Tamsulosin caused my BP to drop and my heart rate to go up to 130bpm over the first few days.

      Derek:

      My prescription says to take it at the same time each immediately after a meal. From some information I found on the internet:

      "As illustrated in Figure 1, the extent of absorption is 50% lower under fasting

      conditions. Therefore, UROXATRAL should be taken immediately following a meal. "

      I'd provide you with a link, but as far as I know the mods will flag my post. Just google

      "Uroxatral (alfuzosin HCl extended-release tablets) - FDA"

    There are many side effects that this med can give you. Fainting is one of them. Best time to take it at night before you go to bed. And then just watch during the day what happen. You may not get anything but if you do tell your doctor

    Have a good day.............Ken

      See my post above. The best time to take alfuzosin is immediately after a meal. After a meal, the absorption is twice the aborption under fasting conditions.

      Yes I know. So if you eat at 7PM take it then. This way you are not running around and if something happens you will be home most of the time

      Hi Ken, doesn't it have a lot less side effects the other medications. I'm taking it a little bit and it seems to be working. Do you know any other drugs or anything else but doesn't have much side effects that will help with BPH? Thanks

      Good morning

      Yes Johnny there are other medication that have about 40 to 50 side effects which you don't want to take.

      Alfuzosin has about 15. And they said that the most reported side effect that they hear about is dizziness

      If it is working for you do take it at the same time after a meal. But you are doing the right thing. Before you take anything check what the side effects are and if you don't like them ask for something else.

      Have a great day..............Ken
