Tamsulosin is used to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH.
It do not contract the prostate, but it works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and the bladder.
This helps to relieve the symptom such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, weak stream, and the need to urinate often
Tamsulosin is adrenergic alpha receptor antagonist and inhibits alpha 1A and alpha 1D subtype receptors.
It inhibits alpha 1A receptor in the prostate and causes relaxation of smooth muscles in the bladder neck and prostate.
This leads to improve urine flow and reduces BPH symptoms.
