Frequently asked questions for Tamsulosin

Uripro 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.
Q. Can I take Uripro with terazosin?
No, Uripro should not be taken with terazosin. Taking them together can cause a severe fall in blood pressure.
Q. What is the benefit of taking Uripro while the patient is on a catheter?
Clinical studies have shown beneficial results of using Uripro 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. Uripro can be given to a patient with a catheter in place and can continue even after removal of the catheter.
Uripro is not an anticholinergic medicine. It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Q. Is Uripro same as solifenacin?
No, Uripro is not same as solifenacin. Both belong to different classes of drugs. Uripro 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 Uripro, 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.
Uripro is not a steroid. It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Q. Can I take Uripro with deflazacort?
Yes, Uripro can be taken with deflazacort. No harmful effects or any other interactions have been reported when they are used together.
Lowering of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) has not been seen with Uripro. However, the effect may vary from patient to patient who is taking the medicine. You may need to get prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels checked at regular intervals. If there are any changes in the PSA levels during therapy, consult your doctor.

Uripro is not an over the counter medicine. It is a prescription medicine and can be bought from a pharmacy only when prescribed by a doctor.

Q. Can I take Uripro with tadalafil?
You need to take special precaution when taking Uripro with tadalafil. Both are known to decrease blood pressure and can cause orthostatic hypotension (fall in blood pressure when standing from a sitting or lying down position). When taken together they can cause a severe fall in blood pressure which can be harmful.

Q. Can I take Uripro with finasteride?
Yes, Uripro can be taken with finasteride. This combination is safe, well tolerated and works well in decreasing the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Uripro relaxes the bladder muscles which helps in free passage of urine and provides immediate relief and finasteride decreases the size of the prostate and provides a long-term relief in symptoms.
Uripro is not indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Please consult your doctor if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction for its right treatment.

Q. Is Uripro better than silodosin?
Uripro and silodosin belong to the same class of drugs and are equally good in relieving the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.

The patient experiences dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, spinning sensation, and vertigo. This can be prevented if the patient remains in the lying down position for a long time. So, it is preferred to take Uripro at bedtime especially when therapy is initiated.

Q. Is Uripro better than alfuzosin?
Uripro and alfuzosin belong to the same class of drugs and are equally good in relieving the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. However, Uripro 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.
