    So apparantly enlarged enlarged prostate is a problem in my family... and after a violating doctor visit and 6 weeks of antibiotics I am still pissing 4 or 5 times a night.
    Not looking forward to going back to the doc for the finger, so I am went to try saw palmetto which he suggested as a remedy.

    Tonight is the first night I took it, about an hour before bed, and dunno if its a coincedence, but I am WIDE awake. Is there something I dont know about this stuff, anyway, anyone else have this problem? I gotta be up at 5:30 tomorrow as per usual and its after 12 with no site of sleep ahead, so it seems.

    Perhaps I should start taking this stuff with my breakfast instead of dinner.

    I take it first thing in the morning.

    There was a recent study that showed that saw palmetto doesn't reduce BPH but if i recall correctly, the study did use extreme cases of BPH.

    This is the link to the thread but the original link to the study is down....

    Personally I found it helps... I don't have to get up at night anymore. At least not more than once if that.

    Someone posted on another forum, that it affects t-levels. Ever heard that?

    Thanks for the thread link :) The link in that thread to the article was dead, but the actual thread was also for those 35 and older...
    I am curious to see what the sides of this stuff is.
