I've been dealing with BPH for the past year or so. It started at 44 years old and I'm 45 now. I had been taking Tamsulosin and Finasteride and they were working as far as urinating OK and getting rid of my pains and discomforts that came along with BPH, like groin pain, abdominal pain, sitting on hard surfaces. Not all the way but made it a little more bareable. I decided about three weeks ago to stop using Finasteride and Tamsulosin because I got tired of all the sexual side effects. I'm still pretty young and I do not like the fact that I have a low libido, retrograde ejaculation, weak erection, etc. I stopped taking them three weeks ago and started taking a prostate supplement that claimed to do wonders, including shrinking the prostate and limit my visits to the bathroom. My pains and discomforts have returned so I'm thinking of going back to taking the prescription medications. Does anyone know if it's beneficial to take prostate supplements while taking these prescription drugs? My urologist said I shouldn't take the supplement because it might deminish the effect of the prescription medication but sometimes I feel he may say that just because they don't want patients to get better with them since they are somehow I'm sure in it with the drug companies. Anyway if anyone can tell me if they have had any success mixing prostate supplements with prescription medication, I would appreciate any information. I'm just not sure if I should continue taking the supplement along with Tamsulosin and Finasteride.
