Warnings and precautions
Veltam F is not suitable for Women and paediatrics. Therefore, it should not be given to paediatric patients and women.
Before starting the treatment with Veltam F, appropriate evaluation should be performed to identify other conditions such as stricture disease, infection, hypotonic bladder, prostate cancer, or other neurogenic disorders that might mimic BPH.
Caution should be used in the administration of Veltam F tablets in those patients with impaired liver function.
The signs and symptoms of orthostasis (vertigo, dizziness, and postural hypotension) have been reported more frequently in patients taking Veltam F tablets. 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 Veltam F tablets 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 Veltam F.
Priapism (persistent and painful erection of the penis) may also occur during treatment with Veltam F. Because this health problem can lead to permanent impotence if not properly treated, patients must be advised of the seriousness of the condition.
Patients using Veltam F may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
Reduction in the volume of ejaculate
Swelling of the face and lips
If these side effects are mild, they may go away within a few weeks. If they are more severe, they don’t go away, talk to your doctor.
The active ingredients of Veltam F tablets are Tamsulosin hydrochloride and Finasteride. Tamsulosin is 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.
Finasteride acts by inhibiting the 5-alpha reductase enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT, specifically the type II 5-alpha reductase enzyme. Since DHT stimulates the growth of the prostate, Finasteride helps reduce the size of the prostate by blocking the transformation of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and lowering the tissue, and blood levels of this hormone.
Medications that may interact with this drug are as follows:
Acid blocking drugs
Erectile dysfunction drugs
Other benign prostatic hyperplasia drugs
Veltam F tablets 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.
