Updated
Iqbal Niazi Says:

I am 87 years old . Have ben on Urimax 0.4mj for nealy a decade. Recent ultrasound showed retension of urine is nearly 50%.So I am advised to stop Urimax and take Silodal 8mg once every night 10 P.M.. Why should Silodalbe preferable to Urimax.? Should Urimax be taken in the nightbefore going to bed? I have been taking it at 4-5 P.M.

It may simply be that after so many years, your body has gotten used to the Tamsulosin in the Urimax, so it's just no longer helping you.

Learn more Urimax details here.

When that happens, it is usually necessary to switch to a different medication, which in this case is the Silodosin in the Silodal.

As to the time to take it, I have no specific information on that, but it's usually best to follow your doctors instructions.

Have things improved any on the new medication?

Why is Silodal (8mg) Preferred to Urimax (f). What is the duration when it shows its effects and how much period it should be taken for complete cure to prevent retention of urine?
