How does Generic Flomax (Tamsulosin) work?
Tamsulosin blocks the effects of alpha-1 receptors, which can be found in various parts of the body. This relieves the muscle cells in the prostate and bladder neck and causes the muscles to relax. As a result, the urine flow is less obstructed.
What is the recommended dosage for Tamsulosin?
The recommended dosage is either 0.4mg or 0.8mg once a day after the same meal. It is important to take this medicine at approximately the same time on a daily basis.
Is there anything specific I should discuss with my doctor before I start taking Tamsulosin?
If you are taking any other Alpha blockers or have any upcoming surgeries you should discuss that with your doctor before taking this medication.
How long does it take for Tamsulosin to begin working?
It can take up to 4 weeks to notice an improvement in symptoms.
How is Tamsulosin different from other Alpha Blockers?
This medication is more active against the alpha adrenergic nerves of the prostate and bladder neck than other drugs and has a lesser effect on alpha adrenergic nerves elsewhere in the body. Because of this, Tamsulosin causes fewer side effects. Moreover, Tamsulosin therapy can be started at the optimum dose, whereas other alpha adrenergic blocking drugs need to be started at low doses with the doses slowly increased over time in order to minimize the side effects.
