Flomax Relief MR Prostate Products:Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) FAQs:Flomax Relief MR Suitability


Flomax Relief MR is an over-the-counter, once-daily treatment for the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men between 45 - 75 years.

Previously only available on prescription, Flomax Relief MR is the UK's most widely prescribed treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is a well-established and generally well-tolerated medicine, with few drug interactions and a few, generally mild side-effects.

Once taking Flomax Relief MR, many men start to feel the benefits within 7 - 14 days, although it might take longer to achieve optimal benefit.

Please note that if you have already purchased a 6 week supply of Flomax Relief MR you will need to seek confirmation from your GP that is is safe to continue taking the medication for your symptoms.

Flomax Relief MR Information:           
 
<font color=#3366CC><b>What Is The Active Ingredient In Flomax Relief MR And How Does It Work?</b></font> What Is The Active Ingredient In Flomax Relief MR And How Does It Work?:

Each Flomax Relief capsule contains the active ingredient tamsulosin hydrochloride 0.4mg, which is the same dose as in the prescription. It is an alpha-adrenoceptor antagonist, also called an alpha-blocker. The drug works by relaxing the muscles surrounding the urethra, which allows a more normal urinary flow.

When Should I Take Flomax Relief MR?

You should take one capsule of Flomax Relief a day. Tamsulosin is absorbed from the intestine and its absorption is reduced by a recent meal. Therefore, to maintain constant plasma levels, you should take your daily dose of Flomax after the same meal each day.

Are There Any Side-Effects Associated With Flomax Relief MR?

Adverse Effects include:
  • Common: dizziness.
  • Uncommon: headache, palpitations, postural hypotension, rhinitis, constipation, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, rash, pruritus, urticaria, abnormal ejaculation, asthenia.
  • Rare: syncope, angioedema.
  • Very rare: priapism. Drowsiness, blurred vision, dry mouth or oedema can occur. IFIS (intraoperative floppy iris syndrome) has occurred in some patients during cataract surgery.
