I am having muscle pains in my legs due one of these drugs or a combination of
these drugs. Searching for an answer to my leg pain problem.
I am just trying to see if these drugs will interact together to cause erectile dysfunction

I take Coumadin for blood clot in lung. I drink 2 cups of white tea a day. Is this okay?
- By GOSHEN: Flomax does not help with frequent night time urination maybe not bph but nocturnal?
Tried many and costly prostate related products to no avail. Dr says prostate only marginally enlarged but hard. Could not urinate at all after taking postoperative codein based pain meds. Wonder if nocturnal is a separate and differently medicated condition
