I have BPH, I'm taking finasteride 5mg which shrinks the prostate to a point. I saw results within a few weeks and haven't seen any side effects, It has definitely helped but after a while I didn't see any more improvement. My urologist wants me to stay on it for now.

I tried Tamusulosin and it didn't help at all.

I've also tried the natural stuff like Saw Palmetto, Beta Sistosterol and Pygeum. Saw Palmetto didn't help me any and neither did Beta Sistosterol. Pygeum actually does help me though, I get noticeably better urine flow with pygeum. A big enough difference that I keep taking it. I buy it from Amazon. Another benefit of pygeum is you'll shoot bigger loads LOL. When I was researching it I realized some people actually take it just for that purpose. I intentionally didn't say anything to my girlfriend to see if she'd notice and after a week of taking it the results were in. She asked what the heck was going on with me down there LOL so I had to fess up.

Saw palmetto worked for me. I guess it's an individual thing.

Please elaborate. What is AZO? What is "goless?" If I can get relief without a prescription, I'm interested...

AZO is a over the counter thing for the urinary track. I had been having some problem with unitary track infection and my VA doctor put me on a antibiotic for a week or so and it really helped but several weeks later I started to notice a slight recurring so I called my doctor to renew my meds and the nurse called me and said that I would need to come in and be checked when this Covid-19 was over but said go to Walmart and get you some AZO with bladder control, drink lots of cranberry juice and water and that will take care of it. I googled it and found out what it was for. The first box of pills that I got was just AZO and it was loaded I think with cranberry powder as it turned the my pee blood red, read the side affects and said this was natural but would or could stain your clothes. Then I saw a ad on tv of all things for AZO with bladder control so I came back to the PC and looked it up and sure enough they have it with bladder control and goless I was having a slight problem with dripping and could not pass the restroom with out a stop. The dripping has stopped but the urge to go is only a little better, **** to get old and things wear out.
I have also did some reading on prostrate health and all that is involved and pumpkin seed oil extract or the seeds themselves seem to help some and there were also several other things like saw palmetto. I do remember back in the late sixties during the hippie movement that pumpkin seeds were really promoted for sexual health. Yes I know and understand that Prostrate cancer cannot be healed with over the counter meds. removal or other treatments have to be used. Prostrates increase in size over the years late in life for a number of reasons one of which is slowing down on sexual relations but not the only reason. There are many wild claims in advertising and one has to be carful and do the research what works for one does not work for all but I do think that a doctor or nurse would not recommend taking something if it was not proven to work in some This prostate med my doctor gave me works a little but not great. Each person is different what works for you might not work for me. On this sight we strive to help each other with our problems be it cars trucks food guns or medical problems, we must look at the information and make up our own minds. Even going to a doctor is not a guarantee that they can fix the problem that is why a doctor say he has a practice, they are practicing physicians and they practice on us but they are way better now than they were 75 years ago and they can in some cases work wonders

It's really something the way us older guys change the subject matter we talk about as we get old. Sad but true. I was trying Beta Sito Sterol for a while. looked to be working for a short time, but back where I was now.

Life isn’t kind when you get old. Men need help because they can’t pee and women have the opposite problem and leak. Saw palmetto works when you first star having problems but eventually it isn’t enough. Flowmax (tamsulosin) is much more effective and with my drug plan is dirt cheap. In fact it is cheaper than saw palmetto.
