Hi my name is Ray I am aged 73 .
I have read on her various views as to the effectiveness of Tamsulosin for ProstateCancer.
In my case I was given it because I had a enlarged prostate gland. After a month of taking this drug I had a blood test and it showed raised PSA levels . So I was refereed to a Consultant Urologist . After seeing this Consultant I had a biopsy that showed I have Prostrate Cancer. This was in May 2010 . Since then I have been taking this drug at night , until four weeks ago it was changed to daytime. Since it was changed I have had blurred vision . So I stopped taking this drug for the for two weeks now and my vision is back to norma . Also because it has no effect on my urinary tract in respect of flow . So in my case Tamsulosin isn't effective. Also I have read Tamsulosin shouldn't be taken long term by its manufacturer. This point is never raised by doctors to their patients . What I want to ascertain is my case a one off in respect to the effectiveness of Tamsulosin and side effect I have experienced since taking Tamsulosin. Or are other men taking Tamsulosin experiencing the same effects and experiencing high levels of PSA irrespective of what experts say about it ?
