Rapaflo 

Indication

Rapaflo (Silodosin) belongs to a group of medications known as alpha 1A receptor antagonists. It is used to treat symptoms of enlarged prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia [BPH]).

As the prostate gland enlarges, it can put pressure on the urethra, the tube that carries urine away from the bladder to be expelled. This causes a weak urine stream or a feeling of not being able to empty the bladder completely. Rapaflo (Silodosin) helps to relax the muscles in the prostate and the opening of the bladder. This helps the stream of urine to flow more freely and the bladder to be emptied completely.

Rapaflo (Silodosin) does not shrink the prostate gland. Therefore, although symptoms are improved with treatment, prostate surgery may still be needed some time in the future if the prostate gland continues to enlarge.

Your doctor may have suggested Rapaflo (Silodosin) 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 Rapaflo (Silodosin), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Rapaflo (Silodosin) without consulting your doctor.

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

Rapaflo 

Dosage

The recommended dose of Rapaflo (Silodosin) is 8 mg taken once daily, with a meal.

Many things can affect the dose of 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.

If you have problems swallowing whole capsules, Rapaflo (Silodosin) capsules may be carefully opened and the powder inside can be sprinkled on a spoonful of applesauce that is either cool or at room temperature. The powder and applesauce mixture should then be swallowed immediately without chewing.

It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. 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.

Store Rapaflo (Silodosin) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the 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.
