Generic Flomax is a medication, belonging to the group of alpha blockers. It is mainly used as a symptomatic therapy of benign enlargement of the prostate, though it may be useful in case of other conditions like stones in the urinary tract. Its action is based on the relaxation of the neck of the urinary bladder and prostatic gland muscles, thus it offers an effective solution to such symptoms as urinary frequency, urination difficulty, and weak urine stream.
