Reply to Dr AMIT MUNJAL's Post: Yes. PSA this past July was 1.00. So far it has always been low.


The symptoms of Frequent urination are due to prostatic enlargement and not due to lipitor.Since the prostate medicine (Flomax) you are taking is not responding,I feel you should consult a surgeon to look for the exact condition of prostate.

Reply to Dr AMIT MUNJAL's Post: Prostate checkups show a very slight enlargement, so far the urologist has not been excited about the size.

Well the increased frequency of urination can be due to following reasons

1) Interstitial Cystitis

2) Enlarged Prostate

3) Urinary tract infection

Lipitor has a listed side effect of muscular pain and this is not related to increased frequency of urination.
