Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Two tablets of Flomax are actually okay. Some individuals need this much to control their symptoms of frequent urination. These symptoms of symptoms of diarrhea are more coincidental then being caused by increased flomax. I will suggest increased fluids only now at this time to compensate for the increased fluids loss through diarrhea. Drink as much fluid as possible and avoid getting dehydrated.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

second dose was prescribed by a nephrologist. possibly in response to some symptoms I described to him about difficult irregular occasion of going to the bathroom for infrequent bowel movement.

Brief Answer:
See below!

Detailed Answer:

While diarrhea is a known side effect of flomax, it is not related to the dose. BUt if the diarrhea persist, I may suggest that we reduce the dose to see if things changes. Should things change, there might be a connection that might warrant further review.

Let me know how this turns out!
