Can taking Flomax cause Asthma like symptoms

Answer

Hi Don,

You probably know this already, but for the benefit of other readers here, Flomax is a treatment for benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH for short), a common problem in middle-aged and older men, where the prostate is enlarged, causing difficulties with passing urine.

Respiratory symptoms are not listed on the Flomax site as being common side effects. But it could be that you are having an allergic reaction, so I would call your doctor right away and tell him/her how you are feeling.

To your health,

Kathi
