What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Chemical Name: TAMSULOSIN (tam-SOO-loe-sin)
FLOMAX contains a chemical called tamsulosin which is used to relax muscles in the prostate and bladder neck. It is used to improve urination and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is known as having an enlarged prostate in men. FLOMAX can help relieve symptoms such as fighting the need to urinate frequently or urgently, weak stream, difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, and the need to urinate during the middle of the night. Your healthcare professional may prescribe FLOMAX for other purposes depending on your medical condition. This medication should not be used to treat high blood pressure.


Your healthcare professional or your pharmacist will provide you with clear instructions on how to take FLOMAX. Your medication vial label should also have exact instructions for your reference. Generally, this medication is taken orally once a day. Most healthcare professionals will advise patients to take the first dose at bedtime to minimize the chances of dizziness or fainting. After the first dose, patients may take their regularly scheduled dose of FLOMAX 30 minutes after the same meal each day, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Patients must swallow the tablet whole - do not break, crush, chew, or open capsules before swallowing as it may tamper with the effectiveness of the medication.

It is important to use this medication regularly to get optimal effects and results. It may take up to 4 weeks to notice an improvement in symptoms. Inform your doctor if after 4 weeks, your symptoms have not improved or have worsened.
