Flomax is used for treating enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia [BPH]). Flomax is an alpha-blocker. It works by relaxing muscles in the prostate and bladder, which helps to improve urine flow and reduce symptoms of BPH.
Use Flomax as directed by your doctor.
- Take Flomax by mouth 30 minutes after eating the same meal each day.
- Swallow Flomax whole. Do not break, crush, chew, or open capsules before swallowing.
- If you miss a dose of Flomax, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once. If you miss more than 2 dose of Flomax, contact your doctor for instructions.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Flomax.
