This is from http://www.drugs.com/pro/flomax.html

"... 5.6 Sulfa allergy
In patients with sulfa allergy, allergic reaction to Flomax capsules has been rarely reported. If a patient reports a serious or life-threatening sulfa allergy, caution is warranted when administering Flomax capsules."

Do you have a life threatening sulfa allergy? If so Flomax should be used with care. Talk to your doctor.
