General Information on Uroxatral
Uroxatral is a drug prescribed to patients who face problems while urinating. It contains as its active ingredient named alfuzosin, which indirectly works to relax the muscles present in the prostate gland (in the case of a condition called ‘enlarged prostate’) and the neck region of the bladder to ease the flow of urine through the urethra. Alfuzosin belongs to the class of drugs known as alpha-adrenergic blockers.
Uroxatral is available in the form of extended release tablets. The strength of each Uroxatral tablet is Uroxatral 10 mg. This drug is also commonly used by men who suffer from BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy), and you can buy Uroxatral online if it has been prescribed by your doctor.
Side Effects of Uroxatral
Severe allergic reactions can be avoided if patients allergic to Alfuzosin (or similar alpha blockers) or any of the inactive components present in the drug do not buy Uroxatral. However, there are certain side effects that users of Uroxatral may experience. Some of these side effects are minor and pose a minimal threat to the user. These are as follows :
- Headache, cold
- Blocked or stuffy nose
- Tiredness or fatigue
The above list does not include all the possible side effects of Uroxatral. The serious side effects of the medication include :
- Chills, fever and body ache
- Painful erection
- Pain in the abdomen, chest and back
- Decreased libido
- Discoloured stools and dark colored urine
Uroxatral should also be avoided by patients suffering from liver disease. People already taking other similar drugs like doxazosin, silodosin, etc. should not take Uroxatral. They should consult their doctor for alternate medications. Users of drugs like ketoconazole and ritonavir should also not buy Uroxatral. People with liver and kidney problems, angina, low blood pressure, prostate cancer, and people on HIV/AIDS medications should consult a healthcare provider before using Uroxatral. This drug is not meant for consumption by women.
Dosage of Uroxatral
Uroxatral should be taken exactly as prescribed by a doctor. Changing its doses without prior consultation may prove harmful for a patient. The medication is usually taken once a day. Uroxatral should not be taken on an empty stomach, and the tablet should be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. During the course of treatment, blood pressure levels need to be checked regularly by a doctor, so one should never skip any doctor’s appointment. The use of Uroxatral may lead to low blood pressure, which in turn may result in severe dehydration. Therefore, an ample amount of water should be consumed. Uroxatral must be stored at room temperature and kept away from excess heat and moisture.
Uroxatral may interact with drugs like atenolol, conivaptan, droperidol, imatinib, antidepressants, antifungal medications, and other blood pressure medications. Consult your doctor if you take any of these drugs or other medications before you buy Uroxatral.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
