Frequently asked questions about Tamsulosin

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.
Urinice can be taken after any meal of the day but after the same meal every day. It should be taken half an hour after food.

These patients could pass urine more easily after catheter removal with a lesser need for re-catheterisation. Urinice can be given to a patient with a catheter in place and can continue even after removal of the catheter.
