Frequently asked questions about Tamsulosin

Q. Apart from taking medicines, what should I do to manage my prostate symptoms?
Simple lifestyle changes can help you manage your prostate symptoms better. Try to urinate when you first get the urge. However, take care not to strain or push to empty your bladder. Avoid drinking fluids (especially alcohol, caffeine) a few hours before bedtime or going out. You should also avoid medicines that can worsen urinary symptoms. These include some over the counter medicines for cold and cough.

Q. What is the benefit of taking Dynapres while the patient is on a catheter?
Clinical studies have shown beneficial results of using Dynapres in patients catheterised for acute urinary retention caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
