Description of the drug
Tamsulosin is a prescription drug. It is also known by various other names such as Flomax and Urimax. The drug is used in the treatment of difficult urination, a common symptom of enlarged prostate. The FDA has approved generic Flomax in March 2010.
Indications and Usage
Tamsulosin hydrochloride capsules are used for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland in men. The word hyperplasia means enlargement. It is also called Benign Enlargement of Prostate (BEP).
Dosage and Administration
1. Recommended dose:
Tamsulosin capsules 0.4 mg once daily is recommended as the dose for the treatment of BPH. For those men who fails to respond to the 0.4 mg dose after 14 to 28 days of dosing, the dose of Tamsulosin capsules can be increased to 0.8 mg once daily.
2. Method of Administration:
It should be given about half an hour after the same meal each day. If the drug is discontinued or interrupted for several days at either 0.4 or 0.8 mg doses, treatment should be started again with the 0.4 mg once daily dose.
3. Missed dose:
If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed one and consume the next dose when it is due. Otherwise, take it as soon as it is remembered, and then go back to your usual dosing schedule. Do not take an extra dose.
If you think you have overdosed on Tamsulosin, you need to go to the hospital as soon as possible. The symptoms of an accidental overdose may include extreme dizziness or fainting.
Forms and Strengths
Tamsulosin is available in the form of a capsule. You can purchase Urimax in 0.4 mg strength. You are advised to buy Urimax 0.4 mg capsules online as the dosage prescribed by a medical practitioner.
Urimax capsules are contraindicated in those patients who are known to be hypersensitive to any of the capsule’s components. Reactions have included rash, pruritus, angioedema, urticaria, and respiratory symptoms.
Warnings and precautions
The signs and symptoms of orthostasis (vertigo, dizziness, and postural hypotension) have been reported more frequently in patients taking Tamsulosin capsules. Like other alpha adrenergic drugs, there is a potential risk of syncope (temporary loss of consciousness caused by a fall in blood pressure) reactions.
Patients starting treatment with Tamsulosin capsules should avoid situations where injury could result in syncope.
The intraoperative floppy syndrome has also been reported during cataract surgery in some patients treated with Tamsulosin.
Priapism (persistent and painful erection of the penis) may also occur during treatment with Tamsulosin. Because this condition can lead to permanent impotence if not properly treated, patients must be advised about the seriousness of the problem.
Patients using Tamsulosin may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
Runny or stuffy nose
If these side effects are mild, they may go away within a few days. If they are more severe, they don’t go away, consult your doctor.
Call your doctor right away if you have serious side effects. Visit your near emergency hospital room right away if your symptoms feel life threatening or if you think you need a medical help immediately.
The active ingredient of Urimax is Tamsulosin hydrochloride, a sulfonamide derivative with adrenergic antagonist activity. The drug specifically adheres to and blocks the activity of alpha 1 adrenoreceptors in the bladder neck and prostate. This action may cause smooth muscle in the bladder and the prostate neck to relax, which ultimately results in an improvement in urinary flow rate.
Medications that may interact with this drug are as follows:
Acid blocking drugs
Erectile dysfunction drugs
Other benign prostatic hyperplasia drugs
Tamsulosin capsules should be stored in a safe place that is away from heat and moisture. Do not refrigerate. Keep it out of the reach of children and pets. Do not keep the medicine out in the open.
