How Urimax D Tablet MR works

Urimax D Tablet MR 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 by decreasing the level of the hormone which helps the prostate gland grow.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. Is it safe to use Urimax D?

Urimax D is safe for most of the patients when used according to the recommended dose and duration. However, in some patients it may cause common side effects like impotence, decreased libido, breast pain, ejaculation disorder, dizziness and other uncommon or rare side effects. Inform your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any persistent problem while taking this medicine.

Q. Can the use of Urimax D causes dizziness?

Yes, the use of Urimax D can cause dizziness as Tamsulosin can cause a fall in blood pressure when changing the posture from lying down to sitting or standing posture (orthostatic hypotension). This sudden fall in blood pressure can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, sensation of spinning and vertigo. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded, it is better to rest for some time and resume once you feel better. Do not drive or use any machines.

Q. What are the contraindications associated with the use of Urimax D?

The use of Urimax D 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 known allergy to any of the components or excipients of this medicine and in women who are pregnant or of childbearing potential. This medicine should not even be handled by a pregnant female as it may get absorbed through the skin and cause harm to the fetus.

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

No, taking a higher than recommended dose of Urimax D 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 the Urimax D?

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 Urimax D 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 Tamsulosin. But this is harmless and more commonly seen when consumed in high doses. Priapism (painful erection) is also a rare and serious side effect associated with its use.

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

Yes, the use of Urimax D can cause priapism (painful penile erection). It is a rare and serious side effect associated with its use. This condition can lead to permanent impotence if not treated immediately.

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

Use of Urimax D 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, the pupil constricts unexpectedly thereby restricting 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.
