Hi,

This tablet may decrease the urine resistance in prostate hypertrophy patients.

You may use alternate like Terazosin or Doxazosin.

For aortic regurgitation, treatment depends upon how severe it is. It is either symptomatic or asymptomatic.

Please consult your Cardiologist, he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu,

My boyfriend is waiting for diagnosis and treatment possibilities re enlarged prostate. He has been wearing a catheter for almost 3 weeks. This morning we made love with the catheter, using a condom. He ejaculated normally, into the condom and there was some spillage onto our bodies. Does this mean that the medications he has been taking for about 10 days (Flomax) is starting to work at reducing enlargement size? Would he have had retrograde ejaculation if the urethra was still blocked by the prostate?
