How does Generic Flomax (Tamsulosin) work?
Generic Flomax (Tamsulosin) blocks the effects of alpha-1 receptors, which can be found in various parts of the body. This relieves the muscle cells in the prostate and bladder neck and causes the muscles to relax. As a result, the urine flow is less obstructed.
How is Generic Flomax (Tamsulosin) different from other Alpha Blockers?
This medication is more active against the alpha adrenergic nerves of the prostate and bladder neck than other drugs and has a lesser effect on alpha adrenergic nerves elsewhere in the body. Because of this, Generic Flomax (Tamsulosin) causes fewer side effects. Moreover, Tamsulosin therapy can be started at the optimum dose, whereas other alpha adrenergic blocking drugs need to be started at low doses with the doses slowly increased over time in order to minimize the side effects.
