Side Effects Of Flomax Use In Women?

I am a woman and I have recently been prescribed Flomax to treat my bladder incontinence. What side effects can I expect from taking this drug?


One of our experts, Dr. Matolo, answered a user's question regarding Flomax for women recently.  Read Dr. Motola's answer here.  I have not seen anything to suggest that doctors are prescribing this medication for incontinence. In fact, the opposite. Flomax is used to help increase the flow of urine in men. Casey McNulty is a resident expert and also a pharmacist, and she also does not recommend this medication for women. You can read her answer here.

Here's the full drug information for Flomax.  Some of the side effects that have been associated with Flomax include blurred vision and dry mouth.  Your doctor or pharmacist would be the best source of information on the medication.
