Rapaflo - Overview
Rapaflo is a medication used in the treatment of symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). People who are interested in getting a Rapaflo prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe Rapaflo when appropriate to do so.
What Is Rapaflo Used For?
Rapaflo prescription medication contains the active ingredient silodosin. Rapaflo, like alfuzosin (UroXatral), doxazosin (Cardura), and tamsulosin (Flomax), belongs to a class of medications known as alpha-1 adrenergic receptor antagonists. Specifically, Rapaflo seems to preferentially bind to the alpha-1A subtype receptor over alpha-1B and alpha-1D receptors. Alpha-1 adrenergic receptors are found in the prostate gland itself and in surrounding anatomical structures, including the prostatic urethra, bladder neck and bladder base. These receptors help govern the extent to which smooth muscles relax and, when antagonized by Rapaflo, can help improve the flow of urine and otherwise diminish symptoms associated with BPH. As a result, Rapaflo is indicated for treating BPH symptoms. Rapaflo is not, however, indicated for use in treating high blood pressure.

Rapaflo is available as Rapaflo 4 mg capsules and Rapaflo 8 mg capsules.
