Alfugress can lower the prostate specific antigen. However, the effect may vary with the individual taking the medicine.
Alfugress can be given to a patient with a catheter in place and can continue even after removal of the catheter. Clinical studies have shown beneficial results of using Alfugress in patients catheterised for acute urinary retention caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). These patients could pass urine more easily after catheter removal with a lesser need for re-catheterisation.
Ejaculatory problems like retrograde ejaculation and ejaculation failure are a common side effect associated with the use of Alfugress and are dose-dependent, i.e., a higher dose will cause more side effects. Priapism (painful erection) is also seen to be a rare and serious side effect with its use.
Alfugress is not a steroid. It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Alfugress is not an over the counter medicine. It belongs to a class of prescription medicines.
Alfugress relaxes the smooth muscles of the prostate and decreases the pressure on the urethra. This helps in relieving the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia as it allows easy passage of urine and decreases urge to urinate repeatedly both during day and night time, and it allows complete emptying of the bladder.
Alfugress is not indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Please consult your doctor if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction for its right treatment.
No, Alfugress is not a diuretic. It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Alfugress helps in removal of kidney stones which are in the distal ureter. It works by relaxing the muscles of the urinary tract which causes an easy removal of the stones. It does not break the kidney stones. Use of Alfugress also decreases the need for painkillers.
Q. Is Alfugress better than tamsulosin?
Alfugress and tamsulosin belong to the same class of drugs and are equally good in relieving the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. However, tamsulosin is seen to cause more ejaculatory problems like retrograde ejaculation and anejaculation and has more chances of causing floppy iris syndrome which can affect the clinical outcomes in cataract surgery.
Alfugress can cause floppy eye syndrome in which the muscles of the iris become floppy and the pupil constricts unexpectedly during cataract surgery. So, when the eye surgeon actually needs a dilated pupil, it will constrict and restrict the field of surgery and can affect the surgical outcomes.
Alfugress relaxes the smooth muscles of the blood vessels and this vasodilation of the blood vessels can cause a stuffy nose.
