How Alfuzosin Works
Alfuzosin is the active medicinal ingredient found in Uroxatral HCl used to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Alfuzosin works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and opening the bladder thus improving urine flow which is one major symptom of an enlarged prostate. It is important to understand that Alfuzosin does not stop or cure an enlarged prostate, it merely treats the symptoms. The usual daily dose is 10mg daily after a meal, the pill is to be swallowed whole and never split or crushed. Your doctor may have prescribed this medication for reasons other than those listed; therefore it is important to take Alfuzosin exactly as prescribed.
Generic Alfuzosin vs Brand Uroxatral
Brand Uroxatral is manufactured by Sanofi Aventis and is marketed under Xatral around the world. It is only known as Uroxatral in North America and your order of Uroxatral may have an alternate name depending on it’s country of origin. Generic Uroxatral or Alfuzosin is manufactured outside of a Sanofi Aventis facility; this is the biggest difference between Uroxatral and Alfuzosin. Generic Alfuzosin and Uroxatral are identical in dose, strength, safety, efficacy, chemical makeup and therapeutic use. We currently have the brand from Turkey and the generic from Uk.
Alfuzosin Possible side effects
Common side effects you may experience while taking Alfuzosin are:
• runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, or coughing
• back pain
• decreased sexual drive or performance
If you experience side effects other than those listed contact your doctor or pharmacist for more information. If you are experiencing any of the above side effects and they are becoming bothersome or severe seek immediate medical attention. Remember most of these side effects are manageable and will go away over time.
Before you begin to take this medication be sure to have informed you doctor of any medical conditions you may have and all medication you are currently taking. Individuals that suffer from chest pains should stop using Alfuzosin if their symptoms worsen. It is very important that prostate cancer be ruled out as a cause of low urine flow before taking Alfuzosin. Women and children are not to take this medication.
