Apo Alfuzosin 

Indication

Alfuzosin belongs to a group of medications known as alpha-1 receptor antagonists. It is used to treat the symptoms of enlarged prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH). Alfuzosin can also be used when a catheter is required for urinary retention and to help with urination after the catheter is removed. Alfuzosin helps to relax the muscles in the prostate and the opening of the bladder, which in turn improves urine flow and decreases symptoms of BPH. Alfuzosin does not slow or stop the progression of enlarged prostate.

Apo Alfuzosin may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Apo Alfuzosin may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Apo Alfuzosin may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Apo Alfuzosin for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Apo Alfuzosin, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Apo Alfuzosin without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Apo Alfuzosin to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Apo Alfuzosin if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Apo Alfuzosin 

Dosage

The usual recommended dose is one 10 mg tablet daily, after a meal. The tablet should be swallowed whole, not chewed or crushed. It should be taken after the same meal each day.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Apo Alfuzosin exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice. If you miss taking Apo Alfuzosin for several days in a row, contact your doctor for instructions.

Store Apo Alfuzosin at room temperature and keep it out of reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Precautions

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Apo Alfuzosin. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Apo Alfuzosin 

Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Apo Alfuzosin.

Angina: Alfuzosin may cause increased heart rate or decreased blood pressure, which may affect control of angina symptoms. People with angina (chest pain) should stop using Apo Alfuzosin if their symptoms reappear or become worse.

Cataracts: During eye surgery for cataracts, people who take or have taken alfuzosin are at risk for developing a condition called Intraoperative Floppy Iris Syndrome (IFIS). This condition can lead to eye damage. If you will be undergoing cataract surgery, tell your doctor that you are taking a medication that contains alfuzosin. Your surgeon may advise you to temporarily stop taking the medication before the surgery.

Drowsiness/dizziness: Alfuzosin may cause dizziness with the first few doses, affecting your ability to drive or operate machinery. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other potentially hazardous tasks until you have determined how you are affected by Apo Alfuzosin.

Liver function: If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Apo Alfuzosin may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Alfuzosin, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Orthostatic hypotension (Low Blood Pressure upon arising): Alfuzosin can cause orthostatic hypotension, leading to dizziness or fainting when rising from a sitting or lying down position. If you feel faint or dizzy when getting up, lie down until the symptoms pass. This effect often goes away as treatment with alfuzosin is continued. People with orthostatic hypotension should use caution while taking alfuzosin, as it may worsen their condition.

Prostate Cancer: Prostate cancer and BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) cause many of the same symptoms. These two diseases frequently coexist. Before starting alfuzosin therapy, an evaluation should take place to rule out prostate cancer.

QT prolongation: Apo Alfuzosin can lengthen heartbeat as shown on an electrocardiogram test, also known as QT prolongation. If you have heart disease and abnormal heart rhythms, or are taking certain medications (e.g., Verapamil, atazanavir), discuss with your doctor how Apo Alfuzosin may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Alfuzosin, and whether any special monitoring is needed. If you develop heart palpitations (fast or irregular heartbeat) or experience fainting spells, stop taking alfuzosin and contact your doctor immediately.

Women: Alfuzosin is not recommended for use by women.

Children: Alfuzosin is not recommended for use by children.
