Continual discomfort.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Have had a problem with continual discomfort for some 10 weeks now, this came on very quickly, I have been diagnosed with BPH, and currently am taking Tamulosin, and after some 7 weeks am not finding any appreciable difference in my symptoms.

Is it a question of being patient or should I consider a change of meds.

    You should consider talking to your doctor.

      Thanks Dave, I should have mentioned that I have had a PSA test which was found to be normal.  It was just that there seem to be differing ideas as to how long it takes for Tamsulosin to have any effect, some say 2/3 days, some say 2/3 weeks, others say 2/3 months.

      I will be talking to my Doctor next week in any event.

      Regards.

      Thanks Alan for your input, I thought there should be some ease by now, obviously different meds work on different people,  I will be speaking to my Doctor on Thursday this will make it 8 weeks then.

      Regards.
