Tamsolin capsules 0.4mg 10`s , Generic Name: Tamsulosin HCI helps reduce the symptoms of an enlarged prostate gland by relaxing the muscles in the bladder and prostate so you can pee more easily. Tamsulosin may make you feel dizzy or lightheaded when you first take tamsulosin. If this happens, it’s best to sit or lie down until your feel better.
Men use Tamsulosin to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH). It does not shrink the prostate, but it works by relaxing the prostate and bladder muscles. This helps to relieve symptoms of BPH, such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, weak stream, and the need to urinate often or urgently (including during the middle of the night). Tamsulosin belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha-blockers. Do not use this medication to treat high blood pressure.
