Been on and off of Rapaflo and everytime I start taking it I get the stuffy nose.I take afrin nose spray which helps but it is not good to take it with enlarged prostate so I'm fighting a vicious circle here.Tried to quit Rapaflo n urge to urinate comes right back.I'm ready to blow my head off and be done with it..

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?
