Flomax (tamsulosin) is in a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. Flomax relaxes your veins and arteries so that blood can more easily pass through them. It also relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.
BUT it should not be used to treat a urinary tract infection. Please see your doctor, you need antibiotics to treat a urinary tract infection.
