Tamsulosin is used by men to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH). It does not shrink the prostate, but it works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and the bladder.

Tamsulosin belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha blockers. Do not use Flomax to treat high blood pressure.
