Thanks,

No, I haven't but it sounds interesting.

My RO keeps pushing FloMax to deal w/the urinary problems I'm currently having but I don't like the loss of ejaculate which results when I've taken FloMax in the past.

This is NOT one of the indicated side effects of Myrbetriq. So, I'd be interested in trying it if you (or anyone else) reports good results w/it.

Looked back at an old thread that I posted on the topic (http://csn.cancer.org/node/189324) and noticed a suggestion to try an OTC supplement called "pygeum" which I'm going to give a try now.

If that doesn't work, I have an old bottle of FloMax & I may give it a try again just to see what effects it has now but only if there's nothing better available.

I am going to give this a shot. Tried every other drug, no help. This drug is supposed to be in the BETA family works completely different. I'll let everyone know in the near future if it works. I heard it my increase blood pressure.

If you have an OAB which is causing you leakage---stay tuned.....
