Were you looking for information about Rapaflo? Rapidflo is a common misspelling of Rapaflo.
 
Rapaflo™ (silodosin) is a medication often prescribed for the treatment of an enlarged prostate. It does not shrink the prostate (as other similar medications do) but can help relieve symptoms of the condition by relaxing the muscles of the prostate and bladder. Studies have shown that Rapaflo can relieve symptoms such as frequent urination, nighttime urination, and a weak stream. While most people tolerate this medicine well, potential side effects include ejaculation problems, diarrhea, and headache.
