> Would this work to help me in a womans case do you think? My problem is from this disease but perhaps it is a stronger effect from the same thing you are talking about. Drugs like amineptine, effexor, amisulpride some, most stimulants,flexeril are a few examples of meds tht I cannot take due to bladder problems.

In my opinion, yes, an alpha blocker might help you be able to take some of these drugs, but I am not a female, nor am I a urologist. Actually, the one urologist I have seen did happen to be a female, and we got into an argument about alpha-1 receptors in the bladder neck. If you do any kind of research on the topic, it becomes readily apparent that this is the kind of receptor in the area of the bladder neck, but she asserted otherwise. I did get a prescription for an alpha blocker because she at least knew that alpha-1 receptors are the important ones in the prostate (particularly the 1a receptors). The thing with these drugs is that they are mainly prescribed for men with enlarged prostates, and I don't know if doctors and urologists in general have figured out that they do have utility in other situations. In my case, my prostate is normal size and not enlarged; my alpha-1 receptors are simply hypersensitive.
