Alfuzosin Drug Information

Medication Information: The prostate gland in some older people is usually larger than normal. Enlarged prostate gland is also called benign prostatic hyperplasia. The prostate is located near the bladder. Therefore, enlargement of this gland can cause problems in urination. Symptoms of this disorder include delayed urination, dripping urine, and a feeling of inadequate bladder emptying.

Alfuzosin relaxes the muscles around the bladder so that urination is easier.

There are two types of alfuzosin: tablets that release the substance quickly and long-acting tablets that break down slowly. Long-acting tablets are taken once daily.

 

Contraindications to the use of alfuzosin

Alfuzosin makes you drowsy, avoid driving after taking this pill.

Pay attention to the expiration date of alfuzosin and do not take it if your medicine has expired.

Never give alfuzosin to anyone else, even if you have the same symptoms.

Do not take more alfuzosin than your doctor prescribes.

Check for drug interactions with alfuzosin and be sure to tell your doctor what other medications you are taking.
