Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Cialis has been approved for use in BPH.
It can replace flomax since both work by relaxing the prostate gland.
Proscar works differently from flomax or cialis, as it inhibits the testosterone action on prostate.
However, cialis alone can be tried for BPH and erectile dysfunction.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****

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.
