I'm 44 and was diagnosed with BPH at 41. You don't think much about peeing except when you can't anymore. :-). I've been on one Flomax and one Avodart once daily since then. My urologist said that I can stop taking the Flomax if I want because it gets back in the blood stream at theraputic levels quickly. He didn't order me to stop. It was just a recomendation. I really am scared to stop because with these have been working very well for me. With my insurance, both have been pretty cheap for a three months supply. Now that Flomax is generic, it will be even cheaper. What do you think? Should I try to live without ift and hope my urination problems don't reappear? I don't ever want to go through that again.
