Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.
No. Going to a lower dose of Flomax will make your symptoms worse, not better. If your symptoms are worse on your current medication regimen, I would recommend you see your urologist for a test called urodynamisc to determine if you would benefit from a surgery such as a TURP to open the prostate channel to improve your urination and bladder emptying. Hope this helps.
