Doctors agree that I should not take all three medicines at the same time (amlodipine, atenolol and Flowmax) but disagree on when to take each of them (Morning, Noon, Night). I also drink coffee or tea in the morning and occasional cocktail at 5-7 PM. How do most people take these medicines with minimum side effects?
I have the usual symptoms of BPH which were are relieved and made tolerable by the drugs. I have been taking Flomax for several years. Recently Finasteride was added to improve the urninary stream flow. I have ED. I would like to drop the Flomax. I am worried also about taking both drugs.

I am 68 years old and had successful laser surgery for my prostrate in 2011. Unfortunately the problems have returned at the end of 2016. I also for several years have taken linsinopril for high blood pressure. Initially I was treated with Tamsulosin but had bad reaction than given Alfuzosin. When urologist found out I was being treated for anxiety with Escitalopram by my primary Doctor he discontinued the Alfuszosin. Either way I was getting up 5-6 times a night. I had been taking the Lisinopril and Escitalopram at night. I couldnt understand why I urinated so much at night versus daytime so on my own I changed to taking Escitalopram at morning and Lisinopril at lunch which reduced how much I urinated at night a little. Ive tried to exercise but lack of sleep and appetite, depression cause me to be weak plus possible side effects of drugs. I am miserable and ask for any help from anyone who has experienced similar problems. What do I treat and how? Thank You...
