Customer Question
I’m 66 and have to...
I’m 66 and have to get up twice during the night to pee. I have to stop to go frequently when traveling. Seems like I go all day. My dr says psa is good and my prostate size is good for my age. I’ve tried several of the popular prostate formulations. I’ve Had most luck with my own mix of pygeum, saw palmetto, and stinging nettle. I want to stay natural....can you suggest what to take to help? Thanks, Rick

I think your prostate is the issue

I feel about 5 prostates per day and I can tell you that you can only feel the upper part on exam

it is still probably enlarged

I knew that. So same question. Does absence of answer to my question mean no answer? As I understand all men my age are some enlarged. My dr says mine is norm. So can you help with my original question?
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

Ok then I ask if you weren’t going to help with what I asked why did you make me go thru all the listing of supps. Please refund my $18
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

How can I tell you if there is anything else you can take if I don't know what you are taking?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Read over the info I gave you and I imagine you will figure it out. I asked for natural beyond what I told ... you then put me thru hoops to tell me Rx drugs. I’m completely disappointed in how you did it. Refund
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

I try to be thorough in my approach and gather all information

I'm sorry if you prefer a different approach.

please contact customer service for a refund. thanks and happy new year :)
