How should I take Flosin?

Take Flosin exactly as it was prescribed for you. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Flosin is usually taken once a day, approximately 30 minutes after a meal. Try to take this medication at the same time each day.

Do not crush, chew, or open a capsule. Swallow the capsule whole.

Flosin lowers blood pressure and may cause dizziness or fainting, especially when you first start taking it, or when you start taking it again. Call your doctor if you have severe dizziness or feel like you might pass out.

Some things can cause your blood pressure to get too low. This includes vomiting, diarrhea, heavy sweating, heart disease, dialysis, a low-salt diet, or taking diuretics (water pills). Tell your doctor if you have a prolonged illness that causes diarrhea or vomiting.

Your blood pressure will need to be checked often. You will also need to be checked for prostate cancer before and during treatment with Flosin.

You may feel very dizzy when you first wake up. Be careful when standing or sitting up from a lying position.

If you stop taking Flosin for any reason, call your doctor before you start taking it again. You may need a dose adjustment.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Read all patient information, medication guides, and instruction sheets provided to you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

How it works

Flosin belongs to a class of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.

Flosin works by relaxing the muscles in your bladder and prostate. This helps improve the flow of your urine.

Flosin oral capsule doesn’t cause drowsiness, but it can cause other side effects.

If you experience any other symptoms which you think may be due to Flosin, speak with your doctor or pharmacist for further advice.

The generically named medication Flosin is marketed in the United States with the brand name Flomax. It is prescribed in the treatment of BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia, the medical term for noncancerous prostate enlargement. The drug works by making the prostate relax so it does not impinge upon the bladder. The Mayo Clinic says that Flomax does not reduce the prostate’s size, but it does improve urination. Sexual side effects of the drug are not that common 2.

If you are experiencing serious medical symptoms, seek emergency treatment immediately.

Flosin Warnings

People who have very serious kidney problems should not take Flosin. You should also not take Flosin if you:

  • Have coronary artery disease (CAD), unless your doctor recommends the drug
  • Have liver disease
  • Are about to have surgery and be given anesthesia
  • Tend to become lightheaded upon standing
  • Suffer from painful erections for unusually long periods of time (priapism)

Additionally, people who take Flosin for the first time may feel faint or pass out.

This usually subsides shortly after taking the medication.

  • In men, the tube which carries urine from the bladder through the penis (called the urethra) passes through the prostate gland. As men get older, the prostate gland enlarges, and the muscle cells within the prostate gland and the neck of the bladder (which controls the flow of urine) tighten. The combination of enlargement and tightening of muscles compresses the urethra and obstructs the flow of urine. This results in difficulty urinating and retention of urine within the bladder. The tightening or contraction of the muscle cells is controlled by nerves. One type of nerve, the alpha adrenergic nerves, cause the muscle cells to tighten by releasing a chemical related to epinephrine (adrenalin). Flosin blocks the effects of this chemical on the muscle cells and causes the muscles to relax. This results in a decrease in obstruction to the flow of urine.
  • There are other drugs that block alpha adrenergic nerves throughout the body and which are used in treating diseases of the heart, blood vessels, and prostate for example, prazosin (Minipress), terazosin (Hytrin), doxazosin (Cardura), and alfuzosin (Uroxatral). Flosin is more active against the alpha adrenergic nerves of the prostate and bladder neck than these other drugs and has a lesser effect on alpha adrenergic nerves elsewhere in the body. For this reason, Flosin causes fewer side effects, especially low blood pressure, than other alpha adrenergic blocking drugs. Moreover, Flosin therapy can be started at the optimum dose whereas other alpha adrenergic blocking drugs need to be started at low doses with the doses slowly increased over time in order to minimize the side effects.
