5. Mechanism Action Of Silofast 8mg?
Silofast capsules 8mg contains silodosin, an alpha1-blocker (also known as alpha-adrenergic antagonist), that binds selectively and with high affinity to the alpha adrenergic receptor in smooth muscle of the prostate gland.
Binding of silodosin in Silofast 8 blocks the action of naturally occurring adrenergic chemicals like noradrenaline which causes smooth muscle cells to contract and tighten. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is due to overgrowth of the smooth muscle cells within the prostate gland and increased muscle tone of these cells.
Silodosin in Silofast 8 relaxes these muscle cells which relieves the pressure exerted by the enlarged prostate gland on the urethra (urine outlet tube from the bladder); and also causes muscle cells in the neck of the bladder to relax.
The action of silodosin in Silofast 8 removes the blockage to urine flow caused by the prostate gland and allows urine to flow more freely through the urethra; it also relaxes the bladder neck, allowing urine to pass out of the bladder more easily.
Silofast capsules 8mg are formulated for modified release, which means that the rate of absorption of the active ingredient silodosin into your blood is controlled and you need only take one capsule a day.
