Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturing country depending on the country of origin.
Silodosin is the non-proprietary name for an alpha-blocker used to help facilitate urine flow in men who have an enlarged prostate. Less commonly patients buy Silodosin to help pass kidney stones.
While Silodosin is an alpha-blocker and shares many properties with other alpha-blockers, it is more highly selective than most, focusing almost entirely on the prostate. It ultimately relaxes the smooth muscles around the urethra, which often become tight as the prostate enlarges.
Men buy Silodosin to help alleviate symptoms of:
Note that Silodosin does not slow, reverse, stop, or otherwise impact prostate enlargement. Other medications that do help shrink the prostate may also be given. Treatment with Rapaflo may continue for as long as it provides benefit.
Getting Started with Silodosin
Most older men will experience some degree of prostate enlargement, though it's not always severe enough to warrant treatment. If urinating does become difficult, these men may be given a prescription to buy Silodosin.
Men are strongly encouraged to have the condition diagnosed before buying Silodosin. Symptoms of an enlarged prostate are often strikingly similar to symptoms of prostate cancer, in which Silodosin does not always provide benefit and which is best treated sooner rather than later.
The medication comes in capsules, which can be opened and the content sprinkled on soft foods if desired. The soft food---such as applesauce or pudding---should be consumed within 5 minutes without chewing. Capsules should be taken with food to prevent gastrointestinal side effects.
In otherwise healthy adults:
Men with other major medical conditions may benefit from reduced dosage, 4 mg per day. Men who have severe renal or hepatic impairment are not good candidates for this medication.
While most men notice some level of improvement just days after starting treatment, it can take around a month before full benefit is seen. Assuming no serious adverse effects develop, give the medication at least a month before deciding it doesn't work.
On the other hand, if the condition worsens after starting treatment, consult a doctor.
Before Buying Silodosin
In most cases Silodosin does not cause serious complications, with side effects mild and transient. However, more serious side effects do happen on occasion and can cause some men to stop taking the medication.
One of those side effects is reduced or no ejaculate, as well as difficulty ejaculating. This is perhaps the number one reason men stop buying Silodosin. If experiencing sexual side effects while taking this medication, speak with a doctor about alternative treatments. Sexual function should return to normal within 2 to 3 days of ceasing treatment.
Some men seem to develop rapid tolerance to Silodosin; the medication no longer works well, sometimes as soon as just a couple of weeks after starting treatment. Those who have this happen can sometimes get around it by taking a dose every two days or every three days; however, a better option is to consult a doctor about alternative treatments.
Most other side effects are mild and transient, including:
The above are not cause for concern unless severe or persistant. Taking PDE5 inhibitors---commonly found in erectile dysfunction treatments like Viagra or Cialis---can worsen the above side effects.
