Tamsulosin (Flomax) - Overview
Tamsulosin hydrochloride, marketed under the name Flomax, is a type of alpha adrenoceptor antagonist used in the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Push Health can connect people who need a tamsulosin prescription or Flomax with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe the medication if it is safe and appropriate to do so.
What Is Tamsulosin Used For?
What is tamsulosin used for? Tamsulosin (Flomax) 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 - Dosage and Cost
Tamsulosin is found in Flomax as tamsulosin hydrochloride, or tamsulosin HCl. Flomax capsules contain tamsulosin HCl 0.4 mg in addition to some inactive ingredients. Tamsulosin HCl 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. Flomax (tamsulosin HCl) capules are hard gelatin capsules with olive green opaque cap and orange opaque cap body and should be stored at 25° C. Tamsulosin is considered affordable at under forty cents per pill at many pharmacies. Additionally, the cost of tamsulosin / Flomax is covered by some insurance plans and tamsulosin coupons may be available to help cover other medication costs.
Can I Buy Tamsulosin Online?
Tamsulosin HCl and Flomax are prescription medications in the US which means that they are not available over-the-counter and one cannot legally buy tamsulosin online.

Push Health helps people who might need a tamsulosin prescription connect with licensed medical providers who can prescribe Flomax when clinically appropriate.
