Uroxatral Product Description
Uroxatral is an oral medication used to reduce the severity of obstructive and irritative symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). For amelioration of moderate to severe functional symptoms of BPH, an Uroxatral 10 mg tablet should be taken once a day.
In daily use of single doses of Uroxatral, men with BPH manage to:
- Normalize hemodynamic parameters
- Reduce urethral pressure and facilitate urination
- Relieve pain, burning and discomfort during urination
If Uroxatral tablets are taken on an empty stomach, their bioavailability (rate and extent of absorption) is reduced by half. To increase the bioavailability and maintain the maximum therapeutic effect, Uroxatral should be taken during or immediately after meal.
If you forget to take your daily dose of Uroxatral, you may take it on the same day after meal as soon as it is possible. If you remember about the missed dose of this antiadrenergic agent only on the next day, do not use two doses of Uroxatral together. Just skip the missed tablet and continue your assigned dosing regimen.
Uroxatral has antihypertensive activity and it is included in the pharmacological group of alpha-blockers. Unlike other alpha-blockers that can be used to reduce high blood pressure, Uroxatral is not approved for the treatment of hypertension and can be prescribed for hypertensive patients only for BPH treatment.
The recommended temperature for Uroxatral storage is 25°C and below. This antiadrenergic agent must be protected from heat, moisture and light.
Uroxatral Safety Information
Uroxatral tablets have a significant antihypertensive effect and may cause orthostatic hypotension, because of which dizziness or fainting may occur. The greatest risk of hypotension persists for several hours after using Uroxatral tablets, as well as when using Uroxatral in combination with organic nitrates or other antihypertensive agents.

Uroxatral Side Effects
Uroxatral may cause such undesirable effects as dizziness, faintness, headache, syncope, upper respiratory tract infection, nausea, fatigue, and gastralgia. The frequency of occurrence of these undesirable effects is about 2%. Research results of Uroxatral have demonstrated that the cancellation of this antiadrenergic agent because of severe undesirable effects is required in less than 6% of patients. The frequency and intensity of Uroxatral undesirable effects do not depend on the duration of treatment of BPH symptoms.
