    I HAD PROSTATE SURGERY (TURP) DURING 1/11 AND CONTINUE TO HAVE BLADDER RETENTION PROBLEMS. ONE DR GAVE ME URECHOLINE FOR BLADDER CONTRACTION, BUT MY NEW DR SAYS THE DRUG DOESN'T WORK AND IS VERY DANGEROUS. IS THERE A BENEFIT IN TAKING RAPAFLO AND FLOMAX TOGETHER?

     

    EXTREMELY DESPERATE! NEED ANSWER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! THANK YOU!

    Rapaflo and Flomax are both drugs in the same category of drug and are both alpha-blockers. These drugs both work on the smooth muscle component of the bladder neck and the prostate. Both drugs should not be taken together as their additive effect would make it  more likely to develop a side effect of lowering of the blood pressure. Patinets sometime may be use a double dose of Flomax which may be effective. Urecholine is a drug that cn help increase the contractility of the bladder and is fairly safe.
