New option for benign prostate symptoms

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to watch a sporting event on television without being bombarded with ads for both the ED drugs and drugs used for prostate symptoms.

Like it or not, expect to see more of this, now that Silodosin (Rapaflo) has received FDA approval.

This medication is chemically similar to two other medications, Flomax and Uroxatrol, but may have some advantages as far as side effect issues. Namely, there was no noticeable effect on blood pressure, heart rate, or dizziness episodes when combined with one of the ED medications.

Rapaflo may turn out to be the safest option in men with ED and coexisting BP or cardiac issues, who require a medication for prostate symptoms.
