Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
I was taking atenolol for high blood pressure and it was keeping it in check. I was then prescribed tamulosin for BHP and after a few months the tamulosin was not really working but gave me some unpleasant side effects instead. When I stopped the the tamulosin the side effects dissapeared but my blood pressure started to rise and increasing the atenolol dosage has no effect. Is there an interaction between tamulosin and atenolol that means I need to keep taking both?
From this study (3 months ago):
I have been forced to use sleep aids in order to get any sleep at all. I take the flomax at night and the symptoms are all at bedtime.
From this study (4 months ago):
Urinary tract discomfort, agitation.
From this study (5 months ago):
I also have GERD. Burping seems to help with the breathing difficulty. PPI's have numerous side effects when taken for extended periods such as gas,bloating, stomach pain, diarrhea. I take Zantac when it is less severe. I also have had undiagnosed anxiety for most of my life.
