Tamsulosin Eases Voiding Symptoms in Women
Tamsulosin may be an effective treatment for women with voiding dysfunction due to functional bladder outlet obstruction (BOO), according to data published in Urologia Internationalis (2009;83:311-315).
In a prospective, open label study conducted in Italy, 63 women with functional BOO were treated with tamsulosin. At the end of therapy, voiding symptoms improved in 45 patients (71.4%). Of the 26 women who had recurrent infections, 21 (81%) had a 50% reduction in these infections.
