COMMON BRAND(S): Flomax

GENERIC NAME(S): Uprox

OTHER NAME(S): Uprox Capsule, Extended Release

Uprox is used by men to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH). It does not shrink the prostate, but it works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and the bladder. This helps to relieve symptoms of BPH such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, weak stream, and the need to urinate often or urgently (including during the middle of the night).

Uprox belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha blockers.

Getting the most from your treatment

  • Uprox can cause dizziness particularly when you first start taking it. This may affect your ability to drive. Make sure your reactions are normal before you drive or do things which would be dangerous if you were not fully alert.
  • Try to keep your regular appointments with your doctor. This is so your doctor can check on your progress. Your doctor may want to take your blood pressure from time to time, particularly when you first start the treatment.
  • You are advised not to drink alcohol while you are on Uprox. Alcohol increases the risk of side-effects from Uprox, such as feeling faint or dizzy.
  • Consider reducing or stopping the amount of caffeine you drink (commonly found in tea, coffee and cola). Caffeine can make your symptoms worse, so drinking less of these things may benefit you.
  • If you are a smoker, stopping smoking may significantly improve your symptoms. This is because nicotine irritates the bladder. You can ask your doctor for advice on quitting.
  • If you are having an operation or dental treatment, tell the person carrying out the treatment that you are taking Uprox. This is because your blood pressure may drop suddenly if you have an anaesthetic. If you are having cataract surgery, it is particularly important that you tell your surgeon you are on Uprox. This is because an eye problem known as 'floppy iris syndrome' has developed in some people and your doctor may advise you to stop taking Uprox for a short while.
