FAQs

Q. How does silodosin work?

It blocks the alpha-1 receptors located in the muscles of human prostate, urinary bladder and urethra. It relieves the symptoms associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy by relaxing the muscles of the prostate gland and the bladder. Thereby, improving the urine flow and reducing the BPH symptoms.

Q. Apart from taking medicines, what can I do to manage my symptoms due to enlarged prostrate?

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.
