FDA approves generic version of Flomax

Men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will soon have a cheaper option for treating the condition.

The FDA has approved the first generic version of Flomax (tamsulosin). The generic drug works the same as the brand name, and has similar potential side effects, such as kidney problems, decreased libido, diarrhea, and more.

Remember, the symptoms of BPH can sometimes resemble those of prostate cancer, so if you are experiencing any of these signs, schedule an appointment with your doctor.
