05 Aug 2015 I have never had a problem with Pharmstore.com, which is one of several on-line pharmacies that link to a Canadian pharmacy. They require a prescription for all prescription medicines, which is one of the things to watch for as an indicator of legitimacy. Note I have not tried their generic Flomax (Tamsulosin). I have been able to get it at a decent price (compared to brand-name Flomax) at domestic (US) pharmacies, such as Costco.

20 Sep 2011 I have been using Flomax for two years. At first took every day. After the first couple of days, I noticed I was better able to empty my bladder, allowing for fewer trips to the toilet. Also, in the first two days, I experienced the side effect of very strong erections, both when waking up and with normal sexual stimulation. Felt like I'd taken Viagra. This was great, even with the related reduction of ejaculate volume. Then the frequency and strength of erections subsided. to less than before I started taking Flomax. After 1 1/2 years, I began taking the Flomax every other day. Soon, I noticed the same improved erection situation - usually within about 4-8 hours of taking the Flomax (I take it at bedtime). So what a nice side effect. As for my urination, I do notice when it's been almost two days since my last Flomax tablet, because my flow is decreased. The volume and viscosity of my ejaculations have not returned, but the feeling of orgasm is just fine. No other side effects. I'd say Flomax works for increasing urinary flow, I use the generic, which is much cheaper.
