No, Urimax should not be taken with terazosin. Taking them together can cause a severe fall in blood pressure.
Q. What is the benefit of taking Urimax while the patient is on a catheter?
Clinical studies have shown beneficial results of using Urimax 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. Urimax can be given to a patient with a catheter in place and can continue even after removal of the catheter.
Urimax is not an anticholinergic medicine. It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.

No, Urimax is not same as solifenacin. Both belong to different classes of drugs. Urimax is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia whereas solifenacin is used to treat overactive bladder.
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 Urimax, but this is harmless and more commonly seen at higher doses. Priapism (painful erection) is also a rare and serious side effect associated with its use.
