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... ...

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 .

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. ...

Side affects to Tamsulosin
1 Reply RSS Share
I took Tamsulosin for 30 days and 80 days later I went blind. Diagnosis "temporal arteritis". I had many of the listed side affects of the drug. Are there other people who are blind after taking this drug? ## Hi Carl, Blurred vision is actually noted to be a side effect of Tamsulosin. The scary part is that blurred vision is also listed as an overdose side effect in addition to being a common side effect, so it may be difficult to tell how severe the side effect might be. Either way, due to the seriousness of going blind, this is something that should be called in to your doctor right a way if you experience it even for a brief moment. Additional information about this drug can be viewed in the links below: I hope this helps! ...

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... ...

Flomax,Tamsulosin, and my 22 yrs of history of bph.
2 Replies RSS Share
OK guys, gals, ladies, and, gentlemen. I have been taking Flomax, starting in 1996, or since it's release, and at that time, depended on samples from my primary care doctor, because, at that time flomax was 100$ for 30 capsules. Then, when my insurance started paying, the generic Tamsulosin was released, and to date I have remained on this medication for bph, and prior to 1996 Hytrin was prescribed, which also worked for me. For 22 years I have had to take something for bph and I'm now 60 yrs old. OK, I said all that to say on this. For 20 yrs I've taken FLOMAX 0.4 MG Capsules, and never had any side effects, but on 1 or 2 occasions, I ran out and was off for maybe a week before I could not urinate, and had immense pain trying, and desperately was ready to rob a pharmacy to ... ...

Im highly allergic to fdc yellow 5 dye. I take Tamsulosin 4mg and as far as I know Sandoz is the only lab manufacturing Tambulosing 4mg cap -without- fdc yellow 5 as an innert. However Sandoz has had Tamsulosin pending manufacture for about 2 months and I am having a hard time ensuring enough supply. My pharmacyst is working with their distributor who claims to be in contact with Sandoz to get "my" dye-fee tamsulosin but so far, no luck and I only have 30 caps left (take 1 a day) Do you know if any other lab who manufacture Tamsulosin 4mg without yellow dye? ## Hello, Jose!

amlodipine + metformin + tamsulosin = what side effects?
Post a Reply Share
I am hypertensive and diabetic and was prescribed to take amlodipine with metformin. But, since I also have chronic bilateral renal parenchymal disease with nephrolithiases and enlarged prostate, I had to take tamsulosin with acalka also. Doctors say that the first two conditions have to be gone before any progress in the other conditions can take effect. And, the kidney stones, too. ESWL is expensive and I could't work meantime except from home due to the outcrop of side effects -- ex., diarrhea alternating with constipation -- not to mention the attendant pain of having kidney stones inside me and the looming fever that neither burns too hot nor lets me off completely in some eternal purgatory of chilly heat. As to tamsulosin, I have nothing but thanks for being able to urinate natur ...

Tamsulosin side effects upon switching manufacturers
1 Reply RSS Share
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. ...
