I have had an enlarged prostate for about 15 years I presently take one Tamsulosin
0.4 mg daily. It works fine until I came down with Itchy. water eyes, upper body itching from an unknown allergy. I bought some over the counter Benedryl tablets for the allergy and then my prostate medicine wasn't working. Can someone recommend an allergy med that doesn't have a reaction to my prostate medicine ?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Usually benadryl does not itneract with prostate medication, and this itch and allergy needs to be evaluated and upregulation of medicine and thorough evaluation of prostate shold be done as well.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
