Frequently asked questions about Flotral Tablet PR

Frequently asked questions about Alfuzosin

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.
Flotral is relatively safe if used at prescribed doses for the prescribed duration as advised by your doctor.
Q. Is Flotral better than tamsulosin?
Flotral and tamsulosin belong to the same category of drugs and are equally effective and safe in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Always follow doctor's advice regarding its use.
No, Flotral does not contain sulfa. However, please refer to the package insert of the prescribed brand before use for the composition.
Flotral can lower the prostate specific antigen. However, the effect may vary with the individual taking the medicine.
Flotral 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 Flotral 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 Flotral 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.
Flotral is not a steroid. It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Flotral is not an over the counter medicine. It belongs to a class of prescription medicines.
Flotral 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.
Flotral 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, Flotral is not a diuretic. It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Flotral 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 Flotral also decreases the need for painkillers.
Q. Is Flotral better than tamsulosin?
Flotral 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.
Flotral 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.
Flotral relaxes the smooth muscles of the blood vessels and this vasodilation of the blood vessels can cause a stuffy nose.
