What is tamsulosin?

Tamsulosin is in a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic (AL-fa ad-ren-ER-jik) blockers. Tamsulosin relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.

Tmsulosin is used to improve urination in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

Tamsulosin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking tamsulosin?

If you have a history of prostate cancer, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take this tamsulosin.
