ORIGINAL POSTED MAY 17, 2017:  Greetings to my Brothers in Suffering,  I'm 65 years old and was diagnosed eight years ago with BPH.  For the past eight years I've been prescribed Avodart and once-daily Cialis.  Intermittently over the past eight years, I've tried to give up these pharmaceuticals and try supplements. Sadly, I had eventually had to go back on Avodart and Cialis.  DISCLAIMER: I'VE TRIED EVERY KNOWN SUPPLEMENT UNDER THE SUN.  Some seem to work better than others.

BREAKTHROUGH;  While it's too soon to tell (14 days), Quercetin + Bromelain and Flower Pollen have made a noticeable difference.  Nocturia is down to twice per night, as opposed to six or seven times in the past. If you're relatively new to the joys of BPH, and you're on the fence about maybe trying a supplement, then you may want to consider the above.  It's my intent to follow up on this post three months from now on August 17.  Final note, I'm so grateful to the guys on here for sharing what they know.

FOLLOW UP POST:  I'll stick with the aforesaid two supplements, Quercetin with Bromelain (as one supplement), and flower pollen (as a second supplement).  I've been taking them for three months now.  I still take Avodart and Cialis, but my BPH symptoms have noticeably abated over the past three and a half months now.  While I've read reviews where some guys were able to give up pharmaceuticals (mostly in Europe) after having taken the aforesaid supplements, I'm not quite ready to ditch Avodart or Cialis at this point.  In conclusion,  you may want to try Quercetin with Bromelain (as one supplement), and flower pollen (as a second supplement).  Of all the supplements I've taken, these two seem to offer the most relief.  Caveats:  these supplements do not shrink the prostate.  You'll want to give them enough time to work if they are indeed going to work for you at all.  Three months?  Good luck, guys.

    I am much older than you 80+. I have to get up about 4-5 times during the night. I consulted various Urologists here in Pakistan. They prescribed various medicines but did not find these suitable for me. Most of these medicines could raise eye pressure also (IOP).

    I believe Quercetine with Bromelain and Flower Pollen being the herbal medicines would not be affecting the IOP or any other serious side effect. Appears you did not feel any problem with these products; in fact felt better. Is it so?

      Hello iqbal45667  You are correct.  Quercetin with bromelain does not cause any unwanted side effects, nor does flower pollen.  Whatever you do take, keep in mind that if it increases intraocular pressure (IOP), it may also increase intracranial pressure (ICP), but don't go by me.  I'm not a healthcare professional and, with due respect, you should probably consult a healthcare professional before you give these (or any other supplements) a try.  Hope this helps.

    I used flower pollen for a while last year. I found it did help but decided to go with tamsulosin because I felt it would work better. I've been on fernasteride for a year and a.half. I'm doing very well on it. Also take daily cualis.

      "I've been on fernasteride for a year and a.half. I'm doing very well on it. Also take daily cualis."

      Believe me uncklefester, I get it!  The pharmacodynamics for dutasteride and finasteride are comparable and, apparently for many men, the side effects of these drugs can be insufferable.  These two drugs are also slated to be tested in oncological studies for cancer prevention, but the timeline is unclear.  Like I said, for me these two drugs were a Godsend.  Let me know if / when you hear anything about Cialis going generic.  I hear tell that it's right on the horizon and, by some accounts, a generic that is sold in the US should be available by the end of the year.  Best of luck, my friend.

    hello Alan,

    i read your post about the supplements your taking and having some success with. I've tried many remedies with no success. Are you buying them individually or is there a product that contains them?  I'd like to try them...thanks
