WHEN IS TAMSULOSIN ARROW PRESCRIBED?
This medication belongs to the alpha-blocker family. It fights against the contraction of the urinary tract.

It is used in the treatment of urinary disorders due to prostate adenoma.

CONTRAINDICATIONS OF THE DRUG TAMSULOSIN ARROW
This drug should not be used in the following cases
a history of angioedema associated with tamsulosin use

history of orthostatic hypotension,

severe hepatic impairment.

CAUTION
Orthostatic hypotension, due to the dilation of blood vessels, may occur in the hours following the intake of the drug. This discomfort, often preceded by dizziness and sweating, is favoured by a too sudden change to an upright position (when getting up from a chair or a bed). The risks are especially high during the first few days of treatment, during which it is advisable to avoid dangerous activities. Afterwards, the body adapts to the medication. If you feel dizzy, lie down for a few minutes and stand up gradually.

If you experience swelling of the face (lips, eyelids, etc.) or any other part of the body, seek urgent medical attention: this may be angioedema.

Precautions are necessary in case of severe renal insufficiency (in the absence of studies).

If you have to undergo cataract surgery, tell the surgeon that you have been taking this medication, even for a long time. Indeed, complications have been observed during cataract operations in patients treated or having been treated with tamsulosin. These complications can be avoided with appropriate measures.

Caution: driverDriver: this drug may occasionally cause dizziness.
