Cardura XL review by 65 year old male patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   BPH
Dosage & duration:   2 mg taken 1/day for the period of still do
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   Flomax before switching to Cardura
Reported Results
Benefits:   Increased urinary flow w/o the side effects of Flomax (decreased erectile strength). Available strengths are more varied with Cardura, thus effectiveness can be achieved with minimal dosage.
Side effects:   None with Cardura. I switched from Flomax because the minimum dosage of 4 mg reduced libido and erectile strength. Not completely, but "half-mast" so to speak.
Comments:   1 2mg tablet at night. Must be taken at the same time as effects last only 22-24 hours. This medication is also used to lower blood pressure, but at the dosage I am taking, my BP remains in the normal range of 75-80.
