I seam to be sweating when sleeping consistently. It's not severe but annoying. Ya get out of bed at 4AM to pee and have to try and find a dry spot to go back to sleep. Every night. Anyone else have this?

Jim, just read up on side effects of Flomax and infection is the 4th most common side effect with almost 11% of patients affected. Since fevers tend to spike at night, is it possible you're fighting off an infection?
Husband diagnosed in 2/2008 at age 57 with stage T1c. Robotic surgery performed 3/2008. Stage upgraded to T3a (solitary focus of extraprostatic extension). Perineural tumor infiltration present. Apex margin, bladder neck and SVs negative. Final Gleason 3+4. PSA: 0.0 til July 2009. August 2009 - 0.1, September 0.3, October back to 0.0, December 0.0, March 2010 0.0. Next PSA in 6 months. Thank you God!

Interesting... I got an infection down there 6 weeks after the biopsy. The antibiotics knocked it out though. Maybe this is a stress thing and nothing to do with Flowmax. It's getting old though. Thanks for the reply.
