Contiflo OD F Tablet SR should be taken at the same time each day. Take it as a whole, do not break, chew, or crush them. Your doctor will prescribe the dose most suitable for you. To gain the most benefit and treat your symptoms effectively you should not miss doses, even if you feel well. It may take up to 4 weeks to notice an improvement in symptoms but keep taking them regularly. Tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after 4 weeks or if they get worse.

The most common side effects of this medicine include reduced sex drive, inability to get an erection (impotence) and tenderness or enlargement of your breasts. If these effects worry you or do not go away, call your doctor for advice. You may also feel dizzy or drowsy. These risks are higher when you first start taking this drug. Remember, your doctor has given you this medicine because the benefits are greater than the risks of the side effects.

Contiflo OD F Tablet SR should not be taken by women or children. Before taking it, tell your doctor if you have low blood pressure or liver or kidney disease. This medicine may not be suitable. It can also affect, or be affected by, other drugs so let your doctor know all other medicines you are taking.

Uses of Contiflo OD F Tablet SR

Benefits of Contiflo OD F Tablet SR

In Benign prostatic hyperplasia

When your prostate gland becomes enlarged it can cause urinary problems such as difficulty passing urine and a need to go to the toilet frequently or urgently. It can also cause urine flow to be slower. If not treated, there is a risk that your urine flow will be completely blocked. Contiflo OD F Tablet SR is a combination of two medicines that reduces the size of your prostate by blocking the production of a hormone which causes it to grow. Additionally, it relaxes the muscles in the bladder and prostate. Together they can rapidly relieve the symptoms and make it easier for you to urinate. However, it may take up to 6 months to notice the full benefits. Take this medicine exactly as prescribed for maximum benefits.

  • Coping with Impotence and Ejaculation disorder
    Speak to your doctor as they may be able to change your medicine or offer other treatments that might help with the problem. Making healthy lifestyle changes and eating a healthy balanced diet can help. Lose weight if you are overweight. Exercise daily and try to reduce stress and anxiety. Avoid the use of alcohol, cigarettes or recreational drugs such as marijuana which can also affect sexual function. Counselling or psychotherapy can also be helpful.
  • Coping with Breast pain

How Contiflo OD F Tablet SR works

Contiflo OD F Tablet SR is a combination of two medicines: Tamsulosin and Finasteride, which relieves the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Tamsulosin is an alpha-blocker. It works by relaxing the muscle around the bladder exit and prostate gland so as to allow easy passage of urine. Finasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor which helps in shrinking the prostate gland by decreasing the level of the hormone which helps the prostate gland grow.
