Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) - Sir, I am 56 years old. I am suffering from enlarged prostate for the last more than 4 years. My PSA is 8.080. I am taking contiflo-D tabs. Feeling somewhat O.K. I do not want surgery. How long I will have to use this medicine for my prostate to come to its correct size
Contiflo D (tamsulosin) is in a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. Tamsulosin relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate. It is used to relieve symptoms of enlarged prostate.
Generally, treatment is continued for around 6 months to see if it will improve your symptoms. From then you will be regularly assessed to see if it is still needed.
All the best.
I to have BPH. My understanding is Tamsulin or Flomax won't decrease the prostate. Only help the swelling and to relax the muscles more. I also take Tamsulin and Advodart together to control my prostate. But I was told that at some point If you have BPH that surgery will be needed in the furture. Best of luck.
