How does it work?
The symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia are commonly due to bladder obstruction, which is a result of prostate growth and increase in smooth muscle tone in the bladder neck and prostate, causing bladder outlet obstruction. The latter one described is correlated to the severity of BPH symptoms.Smooth muscle tone is promoted by the nervous stimulation of alpha1-adrenoceptors, widely present in the prostatic area and the bladder neck. The active ingredient in the medicine, Tamsulosin hydrochloride is an alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonist that selectively inhibits alpha1-receptors. These adrenoreceptors are responsible for smooth muscles and relaxation of the bladder and prostate, reducing the BPH symptoms.
