Symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in middle aged and elderly men.
One in four men over the age of 40 suffers from annoying ‘pee’ problems, ranging from a frequent urge to pee (particularly at night) to difficulty getting started. New Flomax Relief MR is the first proven treatment to be made available without prescription in pharmacy for men aged between 45 and 75 years. It provides relief from lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) caused by an enlarged prostate, otherwise known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
BPH is a chronic disease which is characterised by the presence of several urinary symptoms that can be related to bladder emptying (voiding or obstructive symptoms) or filling (storage or irritative symptoms).
Typical voiding symptoms are slow stream, hesitancy and intermittency. Typical storage symptoms are increased daytime frequency, nocturia and urgency.
Nocturia, i. e.awakening one or more times at night for voiding, reduces the patient's quality of sleep and has a significant negative impact on how the patient feels the next day in terms of energy level/fatigue, concentration and mood and ultimately overall well-being and quality of life.
The great majority of BPH cases can be easily treated by taking simple oral medicines, and the most common are called alpha-blockers.
These work by relaxing muscles in the prostate, relieving pressure on the urethra, thus enabling urine to flow more freely and reducing pain.
Flomax Relief is a new, over-the-counter alpha-blocker treatment for the urinary symptoms of BPH. Its main ingredient, tamsulosin, is an established and generally well-tolerated treatment that was previously only available on prescription. The drug binds selectively and competitively to relax the muscles surrounding the urethra, relieving pressure and allowing urine to flow more freely.
