How does Flomax Relief work?

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.


Studies have shown tamsulosin to be significantly better than a placebo in improving urinary flow and relieving symptoms, and there is no reduction in its strength over the long-term. It is as effective no matter how severe the symptoms.

Flomax Relief is fast-acting and will produce an effect after the first dose, usually relieving symptoms within 7-14 days. It works best if taken after the same meal each day because that slows its absorption into the intestine, enabling more constant plasma levels to be maintained.
