I'm seeking some advice on medications to take for my slightly enlarged prostate. Yes, I have frequent urination--especially at night. It is not prostate cancer, however, because the doctor has tested me for that. Three main medications have been suggested: 1. Flomax -- This is a popular drug that treats the symptoms rather than the cause. It also has many bad side effects like dizzi- ness, loss of appetite, and several other unpleasant ones. IF it helps me, I'd have to take it for the rest of my life. 2. Avodart (?)--(Not sure of the spelling there.) This is another manufactured drug similar to Flomax, but it claims to work on the problem and not just on the symptoms. It also claims to begin working within a week's time. Again, IF it helps me, I'd have to continue taking it for the rest of my life, and it also has mild side effects. 3. Saw Palmetto tablets -- This is an herbal medicine that claims to help alleviate the problem naturally. However, herbal remedies have not been approved by the drug administration as being 100% safe. Even if they do work, I would have to continue taking them for the rest of my life. 4. If I take nothing and just let the problem continue, it might worsen to the point where I'll have to have my water drawn or be operated on. So, that's my dilemma. Any advice, gentlemen? Thanks you!
