New Generic Version of Flomax is Approved by the FDA

Mar 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: Impotence News

Flomax, the drug designed to treat enlarged prostates – Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), now has a generic version approved by the FDA under its drug name, tamsulosin.

As always, even with these generic brands, the standards must be regarded as highly as its name-brand cousin, Flomax.

Flomax/Tamusolosin works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and also around the bladder neck.  This can help treat Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) from causing some types of urinary incontinence and other related issues.  Although BPH is linked to incontinence, this drug does not seem to have a link to these same symptoms and in fact can help treat them.

BPH is quite common in older men – with up to 90 percent of all men over 70 years experiencing the symptoms of BPH.  This generic version should help bring down the price of this drug treatment, which can help manage this condition either before, after, or in place of expensive and risky surgeries that could possibly result in impotence.
