FAQs

Q. How to use Alfusin with a catheter?

Alfusin 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 Alfusin 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.

Q. Can I feel dizzy after taking Alfusin?

Yes, the use of Alfusin can make you feel dizzy. This may occur when you suddenly get up from lying or sitting position. To lower your chances of feeling dizzy or passing out, rise slowly if you have been sitting or lying down.

Q. Is Alfusin safe?

Alfusin is relatively safe if used at prescribed doses for the prescribed duration as advised by your doctor.

Q. Apart from taking medicines, what should I do to manage my prostate symptoms?

Simple lifestyle changes can help you manage your symptoms better. Try to urinate as soon as you feel the urge. However, take care not to strain or push to empty your bladder. Avoid drinking fluids (especially alcohol, caffeine) a few hours before going to bed or going out. Also, you should not take any other medicine without consulting your doctor because some medicines can increase your urge to urinate.
