- Rapaflo may induce migraine dizziness
About a year ago after a kidney stone and was prescribed Rapaflo, within a week I was experiencing constant dizziness and my vision started blurring. Even though I stopped after 30 days the condition persisted. I have another conditions called Menieres so I was having difficulty sorting out the cause of dizziness. I finally went to the House Ear Clinic in LA after my local E.N.T. experimented on me with Steroids and no results. At the House Ear Clinic they quickly concluded I had Migraines without Headaches but persistent dizziness. I never had this before so my only conclusion is Rapaflo triggered it
- Amlo dipine and terazosin
I have taken combination since 04/13 I have experienced ED lower testosterone and elevated PSA. Prior to that I was taking terazosin and hydrochorizide without any side effects. I stop taking the amlodipine during a juice fast and my PSA levels decreased when I stopped fasting and returned to taking the amlodipine my PSA levels rose.
- Singulair to the rescue
Antihistamines , even in small amounts, cause my prostate to swell immensely. Several months ago my allergies reached the point I had to take something. I had a physician's sample of 10 mg Singulair, so I took one. To my amazement, I got quick relief from extreme allergies, but my prostate SHRUNK as much as it did on finesteride. Since then I take my usual 2 mg hytrin each morning and my 10 mg Singulair at night and the combo has all but done away with my prostatic hyperplasia. NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD PASS MIT ON.
- Silodosin and gynecomastia
By accident, I forgot to take my Rapaflo for over ten days. My breast itching, associated with doctor-diagnosed gynecomastia, went away dramatically.
I stopped taking it as if this day.
- Enlarged prostate psa dropped from 4.0 to 3.0
My PSA dropped from 4.0 to 3.0 after 1) reducing my intake of bread and bread products. 2) taking ginger root in the form of crystalized ginger 3) making my own bread. The flour i used was from fresh ground wheat berries.
