Alfuzosin Overview

Alfuzosin is a medication of the α1 blocker class.

Alfuzosin was approved by the U.S. FDA for treatment of BPH in June 2003.

Coveram interaction with other drugs

I am taking Coveram. I want to know if there is a problem taking Xatral Lp 10 mg to treat a urinary tract infection? Thanks ## Hello, Akin! How are you? Xatral LP will not treat a urinary tract infection. It is listed as containing Alfuzosin, which is used to treat urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate. If you have a UTI, you need to see a doctor for an antibiotic. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I went on Coveram and have started to experience significant oedema, principally in the legs and ankles, but also elsewhere. At the same time, I have developed increasing back pain on the lower RHS, in the vicinity of the kidneys. Ini...

inactive ingredients alfuzosin

I was recently switched from Alfuzosin Hydrochloride produced by Sun to one produced by Apotex. The only difference was the inactive ingredients. After the switch, I experienced two back-to-back episodes of severe dizziness and prolonged headaches after heavy exercise. I never experienced this severity during many years on the Sun product. I am wondering if there is are any active ingredients in the Apotex product which could have caused this - Dibasic Calcium Phosphate, Polyvinyl acetate phthalate, or Ferric Oxide Yellow. The other ingredients are the same. ## Hello, George! How are you? One of them could have caused it, if you're sensitive to it. However, you should have this checked out, to be sure of the cause. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibl...
