It does make urination easier, but does not stop the frequency of getting up at night.

After taking Tamsulosin for 3 days I had to quit it. I am a diabetic (type 2) and in 3 days of taking this med my glucose jumped 90 points! Nothing else in my health regime changed, so I know it was this med. Since stopping my blood levels dropped down to normal.
