Flomax Relief MR Capsules

Flomax Relief MR Capsules are used to treat the the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) of a common condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men aged 45 to 75 years. This condition causes the prostate gland (found just below a man's bladder) to get bigger, which can cause a number of problems urinating, including:
  • Making it difficult for you to start urinating.
  • Making you take longer or have to urinate more often.
  • Leading to the feeling that you still need to urinate again, even though you have just done so.
  • Causing you to get up several times in the night to urinate.
Flomax Relief MR Capsules contain the active ingredient tamsulosin, an 'alpha blockers' that relieves these symptoms by:
  • Relaxing the muscles in the prostate gland.
  • Relaxing the muscles in the urethra (the tube from the bladder to the outside of the body).
This lets urine pass more freely through the urethra, making it easier to urinate.
  • Take one capsule each day.
  • Take it at the same time each day, after a meal.
  • Swallow the capsule whole with water.
  • Do not crush, chew, or open the capsules.
