Hi this is Dr Stan here to help you today. Unfortunately, you are taking the best medication with the least reported side effects. There is another that has an indication for treating BPH and that is Cialis daily (5mg). In my experience it is not as good in relieving frequency, urgency or the need to get up at night to urinate, but you won't have the erection/jaculation problems. Request a prescription from your doctor, it's worth a try. I hope this is helpful and you see a change. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have and a positive rating is always appreciated.

Please Doc. Are these side effects reversible . That is "will i return my normal self " when i stop taking the drugs. Because i ejaculate up to 10 ml of sperm before i started this medication.chijioke

Yes, once the current medication is out of your system. It will take approximately 5-7 days.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
