Prostate Home > Rapaflo Medication Information
Available by prescription only, Rapaflo™ (silodosin) is a drug used to treat an enlarged prostate. Although it does not shrink the prostate, as some other similar drugs do, Rapaflo can help treat common symptoms, such as:
- Nighttime urination
- Frequent urination
- Weak urine stream.
This medicine comes in capsule form and is sold in two strengths. Most men take it once a day with a meal. To minimize potential risks with Rapaflo, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other medications you are taking, including nonprescription products, as well as up-to-date information on your medical history.
