What is tamsulosin?

Tamsulosin (Flomax) is an alpha-blocker that relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.

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

Tamsulosin is not approved for use in women or children.

How should I take tamsulosin?

  • Follow all directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
  • Tamsulosin is usually taken once a day, approximately 30 minutes after a meal. Try to take this medication at the same time each day.
  • Do not crush, chew, or open a tamsulosin capsule. Swallow it whole.
  • Tamsulosin lowers blood pressure and may cause dizziness or fainting, especially when you first start taking it, or when you start taking it again. Call your doctor if you have severe dizziness or feel like you might pass out.
  • Some things can cause your blood pressure to get too low. This includes vomiting, diarrhea, heavy sweating, heart disease, dialysis, a low-salt diet, or taking diuretics (water pills). Tell your doctor if you have a prolonged illness that causes diarrhea or vomiting.
  • Your blood pressure will need to be checked often. You will also need to be checked for prostate cancer before and during treatment with tamsulosin.
  • You may feel very dizzy when you first wake up. Be careful when standing or sitting up from a lying position.
  • If you stop taking tamsulosin for any reason, call your doctor before you start taking it again. You may need a dose adjustment.
  • Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
  • Read all patient information, medication guides, and instruction sheets provided to you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

If you miss your doses for several days in a row, contact your doctor before restarting the medication.

What happens if I overdose?
