- 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.

- 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.

dEVELOPED TESTICULAR PAIN AFTER DEPOMEDROL INJECTION.
From this study (1 month ago):
I have been on Flomax for approximately 4 months. The Urologist increased the dose from 0.4 to 0.8mg per day. After 3 weeks, I developed vision distrubance with headache and nausea. I did not correlate this to Flomax, and the primary MD ordered an MRA. This was normal. The headaches continued to increase in frequency and intensity. They became daily for approximately one week. With another 7 days to my next MD appointment, I begin looking for a correlation of headaches with Flomax. I found that others have had headaches while taking the drug. I decreased the dose back to 0.4mg 3 days ago and have been headache free so far.
