Immediate problems with no ejaculation. I think the trial percentages have been compromised. I took 2 pills and immediately had retrograde ejaculation.

Have had issues with afib. Have been problem free of it for a year. Two weeks after starting flomax pulse rate went up to 190. Went to emergency room. Two ekgs show that heart out of sinus rhythm. Going in tomorrow for a cardioaversion. Flomax is a terrible drug for ANYONE with heart rhythm problems!!!!!!!
