How long should Veltam Plus be taken

I am 68 yrs. Having prostate problem. Started taking Veltam plus tabs for the past month. They have a good effect. How long can I continue? If I continue will there be any trouble. I take Aten 50 also. Pls advise. ## Veltam Plus contains the active ingredients Tamsulosin and Dutasteride, both of which are used to treat the symptoms of BPH. And there can be risks associated with the use of any medication, such as organ damage, but what you have to do is weigh your options and decide whether any possible risks outweigh the benefits. Learn more Dutasteride details here. Learn more Tamsulosin details here. As to how long you should take them, that is something you should decide with your doctor. Have you talked to them about it? ## As per my scanning report my prostate gland enlarged 45% .I...

Tamsulosin side effects

Has anyone ever felt spacey, tired and loss of interest? Also I've seen that men only take this medicine. ## Well, it is usually only used by men, because it is used to treat urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate and that is a part of anatomy that women don't have. As listed by the FDA, it is not approved for use in women, at all. Why was this prescribed for you? Honestly, I can't even give you a list of possible side effects, since it isn't used in women and has never been studied in women. ## Two years have passed after taking my last tamsulosine and I am still suffering from side effects. I have pain in my whole body and joints, runny nose, constipation and the worst- ED. Can anyone help me? All doctors say that is not possible. But I was healthy before, and...

Tamsulosin side effects upon switching manufacturers

I've been taking Tamsulosin 0.4 for a while with little side effects. My pharmacy gave me Tamsulosin 0.4 made by a different manufacturer, Aurobindo. The capsule is a little bit bigger than the previous manufacturer. Now I'm getting dizzy to where I almost pass out. Is it possible that this different manufacturer is the cause? ## What are the markings on the new one that they have provided you with? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and increased urination. It is very unusual to experience such severe side effects, just from changing a different manufacturer.

tamsulosin cap 0 4 mg & tamsulosin cap 0.4 ZED

Is there a difference between Tamsulosin Cap 0 4 Mg and Tamsulosin cap 0.4 mg ZED? The ZED capsules are smaller and seem less effective. ## Hello, Ira! How are you? No, they've just been manufactured by different companies, which is common with generics. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, back pain and blurred vision. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I also noticed that Sandoz Tamsulosin is much less effective. So much less effective, that when I renew the prescription I ask the pharmacist who manufactured the product, if it's Sandoz I look for a pharmacy that has it by Boehringer Ingelheim. I was told that generics can be manufactured with 20% less active ingredients, which explains it being...

Can I order AUR Tamsulosin HCL 0.4 mg directly from the manufacturer? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? This is a prescription only medication, so generally, you have to obtain it from a pharmacy, except in cases where someone might be getting it on a prescription assistance program from the manufacturer, in which case they usually send it to you directly, after receiving your doctor's prescription. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, hypotension, allergic reactions and libido issues. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am trying to trying to get this generic medication specifically as manufactured by AUR. I have a prescription and can get it filled at a pharmacy, but they do not have a supply manufactured by AUR. Any ideas on h...

Prostate problem

I used to urinate frequently in the night. With this complaint I went to a urologist. That time retention of urine in the bladder (Ultrasound scanning) was found to be around 40cc. Then I was prescribed Dynosper(Tamsulosin 0.4mg). Used it for about 4 months. I did not have any problem. Meanwhile I found that if I stop taking water around 2 hrs before going to bed, the problem of frequent urination stopped. Then I discontinued the tablet. I did not feel it as a problem. Two months ago, approached urologist with the complaint of frequent urination in the day time. Not able to empty the bladder at a stretch etc.. Then my urine flow was analyzed. It was 4cc at maximum followed by a graph related to dripping of urine. Then I am prescribed Flotral-D (Alfuzocin10mg +dusteride 0.4 mg). I am usi...

Dear Sirs, My Urology Doctor give me a Rapaflo 8mg one a day medications for 3 months supply and before the end my Insurance steps in and changes the medication with a helper from the office to a new medication by the name Tamsulosin 0.4mg in return .

Flomaxtra XL

I have been suffering occasional panic attacks when in stressful situations since taking Flomaxtra XL. Is this a coincidence or have any others had the same? ## Flomaxtra XL contains the active ingredient Tamsulosin in a time released formulation, it's used to treat difficult urination that's usually associated with an enlarged prostate. I haven't found such a thing mentioned in any of the side effect information, but it's always difficult to know how a medication may affect any given person that takes it.
