No, the medications can be taken together and it is often beneficial to do so, in the case of some health conditions.

Learn more Flomax details here.

Learn more Atenolol details here.

And the way the Tamsulosin in Flomax actually works is by blocking the alpha receptors in the bladder neck and prostate, this causes a relaxation of the smooth muscles and thus, less resistance to the urinary flow. So no, it doesn't actually help with the swelling/inflammation.

Are there any other questions I can help with?

Flomax has an affect on the requirements for cataract surgery. If you don't ever need the surgery it may not be a problem. I quit flomax when i found out and my eye doctor indicated i had only marginally affected my eyes. I only take avodart. I've been able to function okay w/o surgery despite DRs description of prostate as unusually large.
