Flomaxtra XL is a medication designed to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as an enlarged prostate. This condition can cause discomfort and urinary difficulties for men.

Flomaxtra XL contains the active ingredient tamsulosin hydrochloride, which is an alpha-blocker that works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and bladder, improving urine flow and reducing symptoms of BPH. The extended-release formula of Flomaxtra XL provides 24-hour relief, allowing you to go about your day without interruption.

This medication is taken orally, once a day, with or without food. The most common side effects include decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and decreased volume of semen. In rare cases, Flomaxtra XL may cause serious side effects such as a sudden decrease in vision or hearing, chest pain, and an allergic reaction.

If you are suffering from symptoms of BPH such as frequent urination, weak urine stream, and difficulty starting or stopping urination, talk to your doctor about whether Flomaxtra XL is right for you. With its extended-release formula, Flomaxtra XL offers long-lasting relief from the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, allowing you to live your life with comfort and ease.

About Benign Prostate Hyperplasia

  • About Benign Prostate Hyperplasia

  • What causes Benign Prostate Hyperplasia?

  • What are the treatment options?

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (also known as BPH) is when there is an enlargement of the prostate which is non-harmful (Benign). It is very common in men as they begin to age, but there is a common misconception that enlargement of the prostate has a direct link to an increased risk of prostate cancer which is not true. It is evident in the name as the enlargement is “benign” (not harmful), meaning the overall risk of prostate cancer is no different between men with an enlarged prostate and men without an enlarged prostate.

The cause of BPH is still currently unknown to this day, however, many experts believe the reasoning behind this enlargement is linked to both age and hormonal changes. The overall hormonal balance depletes and changes as you get older, which could be the reason for the enlargement.

The treatment for Benign Prostate Enlargement depends on how severe symptoms are. The NHS recommends following some lifestyle changes to help the condition, such as exercising regularly, drinking less alcohol, caffeine or fizzy drinks, limiting your intake of artificial sweeteners, exercising regularly and drinking less in the evening. Medicine will help reduce the size of the prostate and relax your bladder, so is usually recommended as a treatment option to treat moderate to severe symptoms of the condition.
