Prostate Home > Rapaflow

Were you looking for information about Rapaflo? Rapaflow is a common misspelling of Rapaflo.
If you have an enlarged prostate, your healthcare provider may prescribe Rapaflo™ (silodosin) to help relieve your symptoms. Although this medication does not shrink the prostate (as some other similar drugs do), it can help treat common symptoms, such as nighttime urination, frequent urination, and a weak stream. The medication, which comes in capsule form and is available in two strengths, is typically taken once a day with a meal.
