Introduction

Flomax MR or Tamsulosin Hydrochloride is a medicine that can help men who are suffering from the enlargement of their prostate or medically known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). This kind of illness causes men to have difficulty when they urinate. This drug is manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim in the form of a capsule. It has Tamsulosin Hydrochloride as its generic name and Flomax MR as its US brand name. This drug is available to help men suffering from BPH.


Use

BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia is an illness that affects men. A man with this illness experience hard times when they have to urinate. They are also expected to have the need of urinating from time to time with pain. This is because the urine in men is to travel through a tube which goes through the prostate gland. It is known that the prostate gland of men when they become old goes bigger and the muscles of the neck bladder and prostate gland also constrict resulting to difficulty in urinating. Tamsulosin is an alpha blocker that can help treating BPH and its symptoms by loosening up muscles of the bladder and of the prostate. Through this, the man with BPH will be able to urinate without difficulties.
