This works great for me. I saw a Urologist when my enlarged prostate started causing problems. He prescribed Flomax, which I took for two weeks and quit due to side effects. I asked both my Internist and Urologist about Saw Palmetto. Neither recommended it. I found a paper from the Cleveland Clinic on the web that stated that Saw Palmetto was clinically effective.
I have been very happy with the results. Most nights I sleep through. Once in awhile I'll have to go once at 4 am or so. No side effects except I recommended Prostate 5lx to a friend who had stomach upset. This disappeared when he started taking it with meals.
I take two capsules with breakfast.
