I have had a number of recent posts here about sleep issues for the past couple of years, that weren't solved by a recent TURP. Urologist says my bladder is sensitive due to radiation cystitis from prostate cancer treatment in 2014. While that may be so, I was wondering if anyone else on this forum has had sleep issues taking Flomax or Trospium? I take both. Sleep issues aren't mentioned as a side effect of Flomax, but are mentioned for Trospium. The longest stretch I can sleep is about 1.5 hrs before waking up to go to the bathroom, then 5-10 min later try to get back to sleep once my bladder feels empty. This goes on all night long - gets even worse closer to morning. I am up and down at least 6-10x per night, and sometimes more. This is no longer a retention issue after the TURP. Maybe my brain is trained to wake up frequently. I would happily go off all these drugs if I could just get a good night's sleep. I have started taking a bit of Benadryl and melatonin and they help a bit, but not much and I feel drugged when I take them.
