At the moment, your only option is the branded Flomax (tamsulosin).
The patent for Flomax is due to expire in October 2009, which will allow the manufacture of generics. Some of the generic manufacturers have already been granted tentative approval for their products by the FDA so it shouldn't be too long until you have a cheaper alternative available.
