Flomax......side effects
1034views
I was on it for 6 days and while it did help with my urine retention I just felt awful on it. Tired but couldn't sleep, headache, and around day 5 trouble breathing. I stopped taking it and am considering starting again but only taking it every other day or every couple of days.
