The nasal congestion and dry enjeculation are probably two main side effects after taking the Rapaflo. Has anyone successfully control the nasal congestion due to taking the Rapaflo?

- Rapaflo may induce migraine dizziness
About a year ago after a kidney stone and was prescribed Rapaflo, within a week I was experiencing constant dizziness and my vision started blurring. Even though I stopped after 30 days the condition persisted. I have another conditions called Menieres so I was having difficulty sorting out the cause of dizziness. I finally went to the House Ear Clinic in LA after my local E.N.T. experimented on me with Steroids and no results. At the House Ear Clinic they quickly concluded I had Migraines without Headaches but persistent dizziness. I never had this before so my only conclusion is Rapaflo triggered it
- Silodosin and gynecomastia
By accident, I forgot to take my Rapaflo for over ten days. My breast itching, associated with doctor-diagnosed gynecomastia, went away dramatically.
I stopped taking it as if this day.
