Before taking Urimax 0.4 mg (Tamsulosin)
Some medicines are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and sometimes a medicine may only be used if extra care is taken. For these reasons, before you start taking tamsulosin it is important that your doctor or pharmacist knows:
• If you ever feel dizzy or faint when you stand up, or if you have ever fainted after passing urine.
• If you need to have cataract eye surgery.
• If you have any problems with the way your liver works, or any problems with the way your kidneys work.
• If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medicine.
• If you are taking or using any other medicines. This includes any medicines you are taking which are available to buy without a prescription, such as herbal and complementary medicines.
How to take Urimax 0.4 mg (Tamsulosin)?
• Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer’s printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about tamsulosin and will provide you with a full list of the side-effects which you may experience from taking it.
• Take tamsulosin exactly as your doctor or pharmacist tells you to. Swallow each dose with a drink of water – do not crush, break, or chew the tablets/capsules.
• Your first dose of tamsulosin may make you feel dizzy or faint, so it is important that you take it just before you go to bed. If you feel dizzy or weary, or if you start sweating, remain lying down until these symptoms have completely gone.
• Take one tablet/capsule every day. After the first dose, you can take your dose at a time of day that best suits you. Although you can take tamsulosin either before or after a meal, the usual advice is to take your doses after the same meal of the day each day.
What if I miss a dose?
If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If you do not remember until the following day, skip the forgotten dose. Do not take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose.
What if I overdose?
Get emergency medical attention or call the Doctor immediately if you take an overdose of Tamsulosin and experience serious symptoms which may include severe dizziness and fainting.
