Flomax is used for the treatment of enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or (BPH), which is one of the most common types of urologic disease in men.

Flomax is available in the form of capsules for oral administration in a 0.2- and 0.4-milligram (mg) dose. The most common cause of BPH is an age-related imbalance of estrogens and androgens. Such hormonal failure leads to the appearance of nodules in the prostate, which puts pressure on the urethra.

The active ingredient of Flomax is tamsulosin hydrochloride. Tamsulosin reduces the symptoms of irritation and obstruction, relaxes muscles of the prostate gland and the prostatic part of the urethra. Also, the effect of the medication improves the process of excretion of urine.

How to take Flomax

The doctor must prescribe the exact daily dosage. Patients should take the drug during the first meal in the morning. The pill must be swallowed without chewing, washed with a sufficient amount of water. Reducing the symptoms of the disease occurs after the first dose, the patients can feel the stable positive effect after two weeks of treatment. Do not drink alcohol while taking Flomax!

What customers say:

I have always used other pharmacies for my prescriptions, and their service doesn’t even come close to the staff at Manhattan Apothecary. They are quick and always nice and very professional! I will never use another pharmacy as long as I need medication! Plus, the costs are lower for the medications I need. So, you can wait in line for ridiculous amounts of time at other pharmacies to get sloppy, unprofessional service, OR you can go to VONS. It’s your choice.

I’ve found a new pharmacy. The members of the staff here are extremely professional, kind, and honest. There was no lying about when my prescriptions would be ready or if they could fill them. They were patient even when I came just before closing, and Jackson was thorough and as sharp as a tac from my initial phone call to my prescription picks up. I couldn’t be more pleased and would recommend this pharmacy to EVERYONE. Their motto doesn’t lie.

What customers say:

Eric and Nick are awesome and just like family to us. They go out of their way for everyone. We’ve been going to them for years, and they are always so kind and caring. Nick and Eric sent a basket for my parent’s 59th wedding anniversary, and Nick also came to see my Mom when she was very sick in the hospital. Bless them always. Hopefully, the manager of Safeway knows how outstanding they are, and Rarvon and Jose are wonderful too!!!

Love these guys! Greywell Rx is excellent now…compared to in the recent past!!! Thanks to a couple of incredibly hard-working employees, Monica and Karen. They have managed to completely turn this store around for the better!!! They are both always super knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and helpful… regarding the location of items in the store, the photo section, and overall customer service!!! I won’t go to any other pharmacy!!!

What customers say:

This is a new (mom and pop) Pharmacy, and from the first phone call to them, they have been very helpful and supportive! He called and took care of all of my and my husband’s transfers for medicine, and if there were any questions, he took care of it for me. They will deliver if you need it, and they follow all Covid protocols. Plenty of parking and easy to find. It was a wonderful discovery for my family and me. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

I needed some shots done for a medical examination, and glad I came across this pharmacy. The pharmacist and supporting staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. I was taken aback as to the effort and extent they went to help me in my situation. If I could give them more stars, I would. Matt is just a true professional and an asset to the field. I wish I lived closer, but I look forward to bumping into him again when in town. Keep it up, Phamco Drugs!!

Cherry’s Pharmacy

Available dosages: 0.4 mg capsules

What customers say:

The pharmacist who was working at 5 is Nov 12th was amazing!! He gave me detailed instructions and education on a horrible side effect I’m having from a prescription. Super kind, friendly, and personable. I am at ease after talking with him. Most pharmacists don’t care enough about their job or customers. But this one pharmacist always goes above and beyond. If I owned a pharmacy, I would want him working for me!! I give him a 5 star and Cherry’s too!!

I was at Cherry’s Pharmacy this week, and the pharmacist was excellent. I watched him help a lady. The lady was nice, then a moment later, as she was waiting for her prescription, she did a 100 degree turn around on the pharmacist. She started going off on him and accusing him of things that weren’t true. Other customers in line told him to call security. The pharmacist maintained his composure the whole time – thumbs up to the pharmacist for maintaining his professionalism and composure.
