Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
The urinary hesitancy / not feeling like fully empty has been chronic for at least the last year. Female, so not prostate related :-), chronic, so not UTI either.
From this study (3 months ago):
Urinary retention much better once off Claritin. Allergies worse. Need to find an alternate antihistamine.
From this study (5 months ago):
Pacifica50 on Oct, 30, 2013:
Rapaflo caused urinary retention. I have been taking flomax for about a year. My urologist switched me to Rapaflo thinking that it is more selective on the urethra and the prostate. I took only one dose of 8mg at breakfast yesterday. I couldn't be able to urinate at all for about 8 hours. I had an urge to go but could not initiate peeing. I thought I had to be ca theorized at the ER, but I was able to pass the urine before I saw the doctor. I am back on Flomax. Paradoxically the Rapaflo seemed to cause tightness in my bladder neck sphincter or disrupt the autonomic system that controls the bladder.
