How Flolite D Tablet works

Flolite D Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Tamsulosin and Dutasteride, 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. Dutasteride 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.

FAQs

Q. Is Flolite D Tablet effective?

Flolite D Tablet is effective if used in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Do not stop taking it even if you see improvement in your condition. If you stop using Flolite D Tablet too early, the symptoms may return or worsen.

Q. Can the use of Flolite D Tablet cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Flolite D Tablet can cause dizziness. Flolite D Tablet contains a combination of Tamsulosin and Dutasteride. Tamsulosin can cause a sudden fall in blood pressure while changing posture from lying to sitting or standing (orthostatic hypotension). This sudden fall in blood pressure can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, sensation of spinning and vertigo. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded, do not drive or use any machines. It is better to rest for some time and resume once you feel better.

Q. What are the cautions associated with the use of Flolite D Tablet?

The use of Flolite D Tablet is considered to be harmful for men under the age of 18 years as it may affect the normal development of the male reproductive tract. The use of this medicine is also considered to be harmful for patients with any known allergy to any of the components of this medicine and in women who are pregnant or of childbearing potential. Along with that, it is important to keep in mind that pregnant women should not even handle Flolite D Tablet as the medicine may get absorbed through the skin and cause harm to the fetus.

Q. Is Flolite D Tablet safe?

Flolite D Tablet is safe if used in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Take it exactly as directed and do not skip any dose. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully and let your doctor know if any of the side effects bother you.

Q. Can I take a higher than the recommended dose of this medicine?

No, Flolite D Tablet should be taken in the recommended dose only. An overdose of Flolite D Tablet can increase the risks of side effects. Always take your medicines according to the dose and duration prescribed by your doctor.

Q. What is the storage condition for Flolite D Tablet?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.

Q. Can the use of Flolite D Tablet cause ejaculation problems?

Retrograde ejaculation (semen does not leave the body, instead goes into the bladder) and ejaculation failure (reduced or absent ejaculation volume) are common problems associated with the use of Flolite D Tablet. But this is harmless and more commonly seen when the medicine is consumed in high doses.

Q. Can the use of Flolite D Tablet cause priapism (persistent painful penile erection unrelated to sexual activity)?

Yes, the use of Flolite D Tablet can cause priapism (painful penile erection). It is a serious but rare side effect associated with the use of this medicine. However, in some cases, it can lead to permanent impotence if not treated immediately.

Q. Can the use of Flolite D Tablet have any impact on my cataract surgery?

Use of Flolite D Tablet can cause floppy eye syndrome. In this, 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, the pupil constricts unexpectedly. This restricts the field of surgery because of which the surgical outcomes can get affected. Inform your eye doctor (ophthalmologist) if you are taking this medicine or in case you have used this medicine in the last 9 months.

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 while urinating. Avoid drinking fluids (especially alcohol, caffeine) a few hours before bedtime or going out. You should also avoid medicines which tend to worsen urinary symptoms like some over-the-counter medicines for cold and cough.
