For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: “I was facing difficulties in urination. Every 15 min there is urge of urination but only little urine passes. All reports were normal. Still my docter advised me to take silodocin and levofloxacin.Now my experience – both medicine have very bad side effects especially silodocin. The main side effect is retrograde ejaculation I have taken only 2 dose of both I don’t know about the side effect of medicine so I was really very scared. After discontinuation silodocin it took 36 hour to go away retrograde ejaculation. “

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: “I was having very frequent urination and some discomfort in my kidneys so I consulted the urologist, he diagnosed me with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and no problem in kidneys and prescribed silodal 8 (silodosin capsules 8mg ). After few days the frequency of urination reduced however I am experiencing Retrograde Ejaculation and not a single drop of semen is released during sex. I am quite scared and concerned about the impact of his drug on my fertility.I am stopping this medicine immediately. I want this serious side effect to be mentioned on the medicine in bold and should be told to all patients who visit the doctor and prescribed with this drug.”
