Flomax side effects.

What is the most important information I should know about Flomax?

Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Flomax may cause dizziness. If you experience dizziness, avoid these activities.

Dizziness is most likely to occur at the start of therapy and when rising from a sitting or lying position. Use caution and rise slowly to avoid falling.

Use alcohol cautiously. Alcohol may increase dizziness caused by Flomax.

Do not crush, chew, or open the capsules. Swallow them whole.
What is Flomax?

Flomax is in a class of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. Flomax causes the blood vessels (veins and arteries) to relax and expand, so that blood passes through them more easily. This effect relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.

Flomax is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

Flomax may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
