What is Rapaflo?
Rapaflo is an alpha-blocker medication used to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia in adult men.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also called prostate enlargement, is a condition where your prostate enlarges. Your prostate is a gland that men have beneath their bladder. It secrets substances that mix with your sperm and other fluids when you ejaculate to create semen. With BPH your prostate enlarges due to a reason other than cancer. It could be caused by a range of factors, like diet and aging. A build-up of hormones, like testosterone, in the prostate is also thought to be an underlying cause of BPH.
Common symptoms of BPH can include problems starting to urinate, not being able to urinate, and a weak stream. Over time, BPH can cause complications like urinary tract infections, bladder stones, and chronic kidney problems.
Rapaflo helps to ease the symptoms of BPH by relaxing muscle tissue around your prostate and bladder, making it easier for you to urinate. It is taken orally as a capsule that can be swallowed with water.
Rapaflo active ingredients
The active ingredient in Rapaflo is called silodosin. When you swallow a Rapaflo capsule, it’s broken down in your gut and the silodosin is absorbed into your bloodstream. Silodosin is then transported around your body to your prostate.
This active ingredient then attaches itself to structures called alpha receptors on your prostate, bladder, and prostatic urethra (the tube that connects your bladder and your prostate to your penis). The receptors are activated, causing the muscle tissue in these organs to relax and open up. This allows your urine to flow more easily, relieving your symptoms of BPH.
Rapaflo side effects & Rapaflo drug interactions
Common Rapaflo side effects include headaches, dizziness, nasal congestion, upper respiratory infections, changes in blood pressure, diarrhea, and retrograde ejaculation. Retrograde ejaculation is when semen passes into your bladder when you orgasm, rather than being ejaculated. It’s not harmful, but it can make you effectively infertile.
In rare cases Rapaflo can cause more serious side effects, including allergic reactions to the medication, reduced liver function, and changes to your pupils that can affect cataract surgery.
Medications that are known or thought to interact with Rapaflo, potentially impacting its effectiveness, include:
- Other alpha-blocker medications
- Antihypertensive medications taken to lower blood pressure
- CYP3A4 inhibitors, like ketoconazole, itraconazole, clarithromycin, or ritonavir
- PDE5 inhibitor erectile dysfunction medications, like sildenafil, tadalafil, or vardenafil
