Does tamsulosin (flomax) help with frequency of urination during the night?

Tamsulosin (brand name Flomax) belongs to a class of drugs called alpha-blockers that relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate. If successful tamsulosin will help you urinate more normally and reduce the number times you need to urinate both during the day and at night.

I have been on 2x 0.4 tamsulosin after having taken 1 for several years, taken shortly after dinner for over a year. My flow has improved but nightime urination can sometimes be 3-5 x.Should I consider taking it earlier in the day? I added finasteride about 2 years ago, taken with tamsulosin. I am 82.
