Normal Flomax prescription strength of 0.4 mg affects my blood pressure negatively. Is it available in 0.2 mg strength or in tablet form?
Flomax only comes as a 0.4mg capsule. A compounding pharmacy may be able to make up a lower dosage for you.
Flomax is time release , ask about taking every other day is you are having issues or consider changing to alfuzosin or cialis. Don't risk a uti
You also can buy from online pharmacies at reasonable cost and manufactured by Dr. REDDY, major generic manufacturer with fine reputation. 0.4 mg capsules also easy to open by twisting each half in opposite direction, dump out half of content, and push capsule back together. Been doing that your years and very effective. I hate 4mg dose and no more effective for me. 0.2 also recommended for Asian population.
I had this same question. Flomax (tamsulosin) was causing me constant extreme anxiety and panic attacks, could not tolerate it. Pharmacist says US distributors only carry 0.4 mg capsules. I found a NorthWestPharmacy in Canada that sells 0.2 mg capsules but don't know if they are time-released or not. About $80 with shipping for 100. Haven't been able to find tablets. Anyone tried 1 mg Doxazosin for BPH or urinary flow issues? I'm already on BP meds, worried about side effects from alpha blockers after my experience with tamsulosin.
