  • Psoriasis and flomax
    I have been on Flomax for 4 years now and have been having a sore ulcerated mouth for about 3 years off and on. About six months ago I developed psoriasis on my scalp and have been using different medications described by my doctor.

    Then three months ago I got a patch on my leg. I started looking at medicines side effect. I found out on the internet last week that Flomax might be the culpert.

    It has been one week since I stopped taking it and today my leg psoriasis is starting to fade away. Has not itched all day today. TYJ!

    The patch on my scalp is doing the same. The scalp thickness has improved tremendously. I just hope I don't start having trouble with my BPH again, so for so good.
  • Weight loss associated with flomax within the last 10 years.
    I have been taking flomax for approx. 10 yrs.I was then & still is very active
    I exercise for one HR.every morning (5 days a week)walk for 2 miles every day,
    ride my bike occasionlly,I am now 82 yrs.old.My problem is "weight loss".
    I'm 5'9" tall,I weighed 175 lbs.when I first started to take Flomax,within 3
    months,I was down to 160 lbs.(I had 0 fat on my body)I am now down to 140 lbs.
    my family & friends can't believe the weight loss.I feel good,strong,but I don't look good,I'm too skinny.Flomax as been very effective for me.
    Is flomax the reason for my weight loss?

  • Chills associated with ibuprophen (1 response)
    I generally respond well to medication. I am a senior who has chronic pain from a c1-c2 fusion. Codeine works well, and I don't use a lot. Still, I sought alternatives to opiates for nerve pain. I lice in a colder climate. It took me quite a while to associate susceptibility to becoming chilled with Ibuprophen. I thought it was age and/or the weather. Perhaps these are factors; but it happens every time I use Ibuprophen. I share this hoping it can help others.
