I am taking URIMAX0.4 for last 3 years continuously.I find it very useful. But I am not getting answer to my question that how long one can take it. After how much time I will have to increase the dose? Will it create any serious problem due to prolonged use? I am of 62 years. I am suffering from BPH since 2002.

Urimax contains the active ingredient Tamsulosin, it is used to treat the symptoms associated with BPH, such as the frequent urge to urinate.

As to how long it is used, that really depends on your condition, since most cases are usually ongoing. Your doctor should be monitoring you to make sure it is still needed, according to any change in your condition.


A dosage increase would also depend on that. There is no definite way to say it will need to be increased after any certain period of time, because it will depend on the severity of your condition and your own body. Someone else may have required a dosage adjustment much sooner than you, because everyone's bodies are different.

Have you discussed any of these concerns with your doctor?

There are also lifestyle changes you can make, that may minimize the need for the drug, such as not drinking a lot of liquids several hours, before bedtime.

There are also surgical options to treat BPH.

In USG i have been diagnosed of prostate of volume 25.1. I have the urge to urinate every 90 minutes are so. I have been advised to take ALFOO for 30 days.
As I am 46 years of age, whether prostate enlargement is abnormal or can it be due to any infection?
Is ALFOO is OK or any other drug will be better?
