I have been taking Xatral tablets for about 15 months. A urologist gave me as I suffered from benign
inflammation in the prostate gland. He found out this after the palpitation test.
Unfortunately the doctor retired. So I went to another urologist. He did the palpitation test found out I am
suffering from benign inflammation. He firmly said there were no inflammation in the prostate gland.
I am 61 years. He said I take the tablets for no reason and suggested stopping it.
My problems is to go to toilet once at night.
Now I bought another bottle of tablet called 'Cernitol'. I didn't open it.
Do you think I must stop taking Xatral and start with Cernitol?
It is troublesome to go to toilet at night.
Your help is necessary.
I have made a mistake. I just posted without checking.
The urologist I met last week told me that I have a benign enlargement in the prostate gland. It was incorrect to write 'benign inflammation'.
He said it would be unnecessary to take Xatral tablets when you have a benign enlargement.
He did the PSA test. It was fine. The value is 1.7.
It seems PSA should be over 4.0 to consider as problem having in the prostate gland.
The doctor I met almost 15 months ago told me that I have a benign inflammation in the prostate gland. He gave me Xatral tablets.
May I stop Xatral and start with Cernitol tablets?
I don't have any pains. Only the night urination is the problem.
I want to hear from you.
