Repetitive Prostatic Massage and Drug Therapy as an Alternative to Transurethral Resection of the Prostate
An actual (tiny) study done on men with urinary retention problems. Study was done in the Philipines. NIH study.

An interesting observation. In the Philipines, it is apparently common to dose terazosin a bit differently. The article mentions 2mg doses 4-times a day. That seems so sensible given how quickly the affect of a dose fades. But my concerns about terazosin and heart failure remain. Life is not without its choices.

A Comparison of Varying α-Blockers and Other Pharmacotherapy Options for Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms
Covers the effects and side affects of popular bph drugs. I guess technically it addresses LUTS, or lower urinary tract symptoms.

The most surprising thing for me was to find that doxazosin significantly increased the risk of heart failure, especially congestive heart failure. In fact the limb of the study dealing with doxazosin was discontinued because of these risks.

10 Ways To Lower Your PSA -
Although several hormones have an impact on the prostate, one in particular—DHT, or dihydrotestosterone—promotes prostate inflammation and stimulates insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), a hormone that can promote abnormal cell growth and cancer. Certain foods contain substances shown to naturally inhibit DHT. One of those substances is lycopene, which is found in carrots, mangoes, tomatoes, and watermelon.

A National Institutes of Health study noted that lycopene supplements inhibit IGF-I growth in prostate cells by reducing DHT-modulated IGF-I production. Other food substances that inhibit DHT include L-lysine (in almonds, peanuts, pecans, walnuts), and zinc (in cashews, kale, spinach, wheat germ, and white mushrooms). Make a point to include several of the mentioned foods in your diet every day.
