FAQ

What is the tamsulosin mechanism of action?

Tamsulosin is a selective antagonist of the alpha1A-adrenergic receptor. Tamsulosin’s actions are directed at smooth muscle receptors in the prostate and urethra. By blocking this receptor, you can enhance urine flow by relaxing the smooth muscles of the bladder and urethra.

Can tamsulosin use for UTIs?

Tamsulosin is a selective antagonist of the alpha1A-adrenergic receptor. Tamsulosin’s actions are directed at smooth muscle receptors in the prostate and urethra. Blocking this receptor relaxes the smooth muscle of the bladder and urethra, improving urine flow.

What does tamsulosin do to the ureter?

Tamsulosin is a -1A-specific blocker that causes selective relaxation of ureteral smooth muscle and suppression of ureteral spasms, resulting in ureteral dilatation, which can aid in retrograde ureterorenoscopy (URS).
