Hi, I usually post over on Fibro, but my DH is having a problem and I'm hoping somone can help us.
 
My DH is T1 Diabetic, he has had Kidney stones in the past, plus other health issues. The other night he complained of pain in his back, knew it was a stone. We went to ER, CT scan showed it was stone. The ER dr gave him some RX and sent us home. I filled the RXs for Flomax, Percocet and Reglan. He has taken the Flomax and gets a terrible pain in the kidney area and starts to vomit. I didn't see that listed as possible side effect of the Flomax, but each time he takes that med that is what happens. He has taken the Reglan to help w/ the nausea and vomiting, but it can go on for awhile.
 
Does anyone else have this reaction w/ Flomax? He doesn't want to spend another DAY in the ER, it just takes forever to get seen in there.
 
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
 
God bless.  Alice.

Hi Alice,

So sorry that your husband is much discomfort.  I have been given flomax for several stones and am currently taking it for the next 4 mos following a 14 mo ordeal with stones, nephostomy tubes, numerous stents & 12 surgeries/procedures; I have never had any problems taking flomax but your husband could be  or he is actually passing the stone and this would cause the symptoms you described.  You might better check with his urologist or PCP about his symptoms to see if he needs to stop taking the flomax.

I wish him the very best.

Prayers are with you both,

Judy

Dear Judy,
 
Thank you so much for responding. The pain and vomiting got so bad, he had to relent and go back to the ER. They rushed him into the room and started testing. He had passed a tiny potion of the stone at home the other day, but there is still a piece in there and they are going in today. Since he is on certain meds, they don't want to 'blast' the stone, and possibly cause bleeding.  They will probably put in a stent.
 
The dr did take him off the Flomax and changed his pain meds, too.
 
Thank you again for your info, and especially for your prayers. I wish you the best, also.
 
God bless.  Alice.
