What Does It Means When A Man Is Taking Flomax And Ejaculates But Not Semen Is Discharged?

My lover is experiencing problems while taking Flomax. When he ejaculates there is no semen discharge. Is that normal as side effect of the medication?

Answer

Abnormal ejaculation was reported in 8.4% of patients in the clinical sutdies that were performed for the drug to be aproved. This includes decreased ejaculation, no ejaculation and retrograde ejaculation. This is one of the side effects of the drug. It is reversible and stopping the medication should result in a return of ejaculation. If the drug has been helping your voiding pattern you should discuss this with your urologist, and ask for a different alpha-blocker as not all the drugs in this class will be associated with this side effect.
