Tamsulosin / G04C A02
Tamsulosin hydrochloride 0.4 mg.
TAMSULOSIN is a selective α1 receptor antagonist that binds selectively and competitively to postsynaptic α1A adrenoreceptors in the prostate versus α1B receptors in the blood vessels.
- lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Tamsulosin binds selectively and competitively to postsynaptic α1A adrenoreceptors, which convey smooth muscle contraction, thereby relaxing prostatic and urethral smooth muscle. TAMSULOSIN increases the maximum urinary flow rate by relaxing prostatic and urethral smooth muscle, thus relieving obstruction.
