Floprost-MR uses and description

Sort by popularity
Floprost-MR - Floprost-MR is in a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic (AL-fa ad-ren-ER-jik) blockers. Floprost-MR relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.

Floprost-MR is used to improve urination in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

Floprost-MR may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Floprost-MR, a sulfamoylphenethylamine-derivative alpha-adrenoceptor blocker with enhanced specificity for the alpha-adrenoceptors of the prostate, is commonly used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The drug is commercially available in a racemic mixture of 2 isomers, and is pharmacologically related to doxazocin, prazosin, and terazosin. However, unlike these drugs, Floprost-MR has a higher affinity for the alpha-1A- adrenergic receptors, which are located in vascular smooth muscle. Studies show that Floprost-MR has about 12 times greater affinity for alpha-1 adrenergic receptors in the prostate than those in the aorta, which may result in a reduced incidence of adverse cardiovascular effects.

Floprost-MR is used to treat symptoms of an enlarged prostate gland in men. This enlargement of the prostate gland is called Benign Prostate Hypertrophy (BPH). The enlarged prostate gland may cause problems when you pass urine. Floprost-MR relaxes the muscles in the prostate gland and bladder. This helps to improve symptoms such as difficulty in passing urine, slow or interrupted flow of urine, frequent urination and dribbling after passing urine.
