Flomax vs Rapaflo

It is a fact that not all people are compatible with a certain medication. Some People experience allergic reactions, some manifest side effects and others are not able to tolerate the activity of certain drugs. The purpose of this essay is to contrast the differences between the two drugs Flomax and Rapaflo. We will look at the classification of each drug, the generic availability, the mechanism of the drug and the conventional the side effects of each medication.

Flomax is manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Flomax medication belong to a part of a class of drugs known as alpha-1-blockers. It mainly acts by blocking the alpha-1-receptors inside the body. Alpha-1-receptors are found in several parts of the body, including the prostate gland. Blocking the alpha-1-receptors, relaxation of the muscles occurs in the prostate and the urinary bladder neck. Flomax does not decrease the prostate size; it just helps soothe the present symptoms by relaxing the muscles of the prostate and bladder thereby relieving BPH symptoms quickly. While the drug can help with symptoms, it is not a cure for BPH. The generic version of Flomax is Tamsulosin. Rapaflo on the other hand is manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Just like Flomax, Rapaflo also belong to a group of drugs known as alpha1 blockers. Rapaflo medication helps decrease the tension in the urinary tract and in the prostate gland by blocking the alpha1 receptors. There is no generic form of Rapaflo medication.

A number of side effects are expected when you take Flomax medication this include, abnormal ejaculation, runny or stuffy nose, dizziness, infections, common colds or flu, stomach problems, increased coughing, sleepiness, chest pain, Sinus infection (sinusitis), decreased sex drive (libido), blurred vision, tooth problems, trouble sleeping (insomnia), and spinning sensation (vertigo). When taking Rapaflo, the expected side effects are quite lesser compared to the side effects of Flomax. Side effects of Rapaflo include, retrograde ejaculation (when ejaculation enters the bladder instead of going out through the penis), dizziness, frequent bowel movement, headaches, common cold symptoms and nasal congestion.

Flomax or Rapaflo are medications prescribed by doctors to men who are diagnosed with BPH or enlarged prostate as the beginning treatment. These medications help relax the muscles near the prostate. But these medications do not directly affect on the size of the prostate, they just work very quickly by masking the current symptoms of men with BPH. Both are classified as alpha-1 blockers. Side effects are almost similar with each other.
