More information

  • Usage

    What is tamsulosin used for? Tamsulosin is an antagonist of alpha adrenoceptors and is indicated for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Specifically, tamsulosin interacts with receptors in the human prostate gland that regulate smooth muscle tone which impact urine flow rate and symptoms related to BPH. Tamsulosin’s mechanism of action on the prostate is different from that of finasteride. Tamsulosin is sometimes used in combination with the medication dutasteride. Tamsulosin is similar to the medications alfuzosin and doxazosin.
