    IMPORTANT: HOW TO USE THIS INFORMATION: This is a summary and does NOT have all possible information about this product.

This information is not individual medical advice and does not substitute for the advice of your health care professional. Always ask your health care professional for complete information about this product and your specific health needs.




    USES: This medication is used to treat the symptoms of a prostate gland condition called BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as an enlarged prostate). Silodosin is an alpha-blocker that works by relaxing the muscles in the bladder neck and prostate. Relaxing these muscles leads to relief of symptoms of BPH such as the feeling of needing 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. Silodosin does not shrink the prostate. This medication should not be used to treat high blood pressure.

    OTHER USES: This section contains uses of this drug that are not listed in the approved professional labeling for the drug but that may be prescribed by your health care professional. Use this drug for a condition that is listed in this section only if it has been so prescribed by your health care professional. Silodosin may also be used to help your body "pass," or get rid of, kidney stones through urination.

    HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth, usually once a day with a meal, or as directed by your doctor. Ask your doctor if you should take the first dose at bedtime to minimize the chances of getting dizzy or fainting. After the first dose, take your regularly scheduled dose with the same meal each day, or take exactly as directed by your doctor. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Inform your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or if they worsen.

    SIDE EFFECTS: Dizziness or problems ejaculating may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these rare but serious side effects occur: fainting, vision changes.
