Flomax and cataracts

M doctor has just prescribed Flomax. I had cataract surgery a month ago. Is it safe to begin taking Flomax now?

Flomax doesn't cause problems after cataract surgery but during surgery (Floppy Iris Syndrome).  So do take it. For men that have cataracts and are on or are put on Flomax do not stop taking Flomax or refuse to go on it. Most men on Flomax do not have floppy iris syndrome. As long as the surgeon know ahead of time the man is on Flomax special techniques can be used to deal with FIS.
