What Is Tamsulosin Used For?

What is tamsulosin used for? Tamsulosin prescription medication 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 (Propecia). Tamsulosin medication is sometimes used in combination with the medication dutasteride. Tamsulosin is similar to the medications alfuzosin (UroXatral), doxazosin (Cardura), prazosin (Minipress) and silodosin (Rapaflo).

Tamsulosin - Dosage and Cost

Tamsulosin is typically prescribed in the form tamsulosin hydrochloride (tamsulosin HCl). Tamsulosin HCl itself is found as white crystals that are slightly soluble in water and is mostly absorbed after oral administration while fasting. The maximum concentration is generally achieved within five hours in these conditions and tamsulosin HCl binds extensively to proteins in the plasma. The elimination half-life of tamsulosin HCl is typically between five and seven hours. Most tamsulosin is eventually excreted in the urine but some can also be found in the feces. Tamsulosin medication is considered affordable at under forty cents per tamsulosin pill at many pharmacies. Additionally, the cost of tamsulosin may be covered by some insurance plans and tamsulosin coupons may be available to help cover other medication costs.
