Introduction

Generic Flomax, a licensed medicine manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals Inc, is prescribed in the treatment of enlarged prostate. Belonging to a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers, Flomax relaxes the prostate and bladder neck muscles making it easy to urinate. The medication is known to improve urination in men suffering from enlarged prostate. Medically the problem of enlarged prostate is also referred as benign prostatic hyperplasia, benign prostatic hypertrophy, or BPH. This condition usually occurs in middle age men in whom the walnut size prostate that surrounds the urethra become enlarged and restricts the flow of urine. Although generic Flomax does not reduce the prostate enlargement but it acts on the surrounding muscles by relaxing them and increasing the blood flow thereby allowing the patients to urinate easily and comfortably.


Use

Flomax is used in men for the treatment of enlarged prostate along with a number of diseases of the prostate gland and the lower urinary tract. The medication help relieves BPH symptoms like urinary frequency and urinary urgency. Besides these common uses, healthcare providers also recommend Flomax for off-label use like for the treatment of urinary retention in women, urinary problems associated with multiple sclerosis and to treat urinary problems related to the treatment of prostate cancer.


Side effects

While taking Flomax patients might notice some of the common side effects that are quite natural. However, in case of some severe side effects patients must immediately seek medical attention to avoid any serious consequences. Some of the common side effects associated with the Flomax include:


Composition

The active ingredient in generic Flomax is tamsulosin hydrochloride.


Dosage and administration

Patients should strictly follow the doctors recommended dosage and should never adjust dosage on its own. Usually the initial dose of Flomax for the treatment of enlarged prostate is same for everyone and is 0.4 mg taken once in a day. However, if there is no sign of improvement in the enlarged prostate symptoms after two to four weeks of medication then the patients are usually recommended with the dosage of 0.8 mg once in a day. Patients should remember that if they stop taking Flomax even for few days also, then they have to start it again with 0.4 mg of dose for at least another two week. Flomax should be taken at the same time every day and is ideal to be taken after half an hour of the meal. The medicine must be swallowed whole and should not be opened, crushed or chewed.
