What are Flomax Relief MR Capsules?
Flomax Relief MR Capsules provide relief from the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as an enlarged prostate gland. Flomax Relief MR Capsules are suitable for use in male adults aged 45 to 75 years of age.
Symptoms include the need to pass urine more urgently or frequently, while also having reduced flow or being unable to empty the bladder fully.
The capsules contain the active ingredient tamsulosin hydrochloride, an alpha-blocker that relaxes the prostate gland muscle to relieve symptoms.
Although these capsules are available without prescription, you will need to undergo a consultation with your pharmacist before using them. You can order Flomax Relief online with 100% discretion and get it delivered straight to your door.
How do Flomax Relief MR Capsules work?
As men get older, the prostate gland often becomes enlarged, pressing on the urethra and obstructing the flow of urine. This can lead to an urgent or more frequent need to pass urine, difficulty passing urine or the inability to empty the bladder completely. This is known as an enlarged prostate gland or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Flomax Relief MR Capsules contain the alpha blocker tamsulosin hydrochloride. This blocks the alpha receptors in the prostate gland muscle and relaxes the prostate gland muscle to relieve pressure on the urethra, making it easier to pass urine and empty the bladder.
Although you can buy this medicine without a prescription, you should always consult your doctor for a diagnosis if you think you are affected by BPH or prostate problems.
If no improvement in your symptoms is seen within 2 weeks of taking this medicine, you should seek medical advice from your doctor.

- Take 1 capsule at the same time every day. The best time to take the capsule is after breakfast.
- Swallow the capsule whole with a glass of water. Don't open, crush or chew it.
- These prolonged-release capsules are designed to release the tamsulosin gradually, so a capsule is steadily absorbed into the bloodstream throughout the day
- If you forget to take a dose, just take it as soon as you remember. Don't take two doses to make up for a missed dose.
