Which is more effective- rapaflo or flomax?

Equally effective

Flomax
Though individual patients may notice differences in efficacy and tolerability between the two meds, the clinical studies leading to FDA approval show similar results in improvement in both urinary symptoms and urinary flow. Excluding ejaculation changes, Rapaflo 'may' have a quicker onset of action and a better side effect profile than Flomax.

It has been shown to improve urinary symptoms, or IPSS score. It is also used to help pass kidney stones by relaxing the ureter. It is also used, at times, as an adjunct in the treatment of chronic prostatitis.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

Does Flomax help cure Prostatitis?

Unfortunately not

Open-uri20121028-29451-rxprug
Tamsolusin branded as Flomax belongs to a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. It can only "soften/loosen your prostate gland" thus minimizing the compression of your urethra, hence allowing you to pee more efficiently. Prostatitis can make the peeing process more difficult and Flomax can help the symptoms a bit, but CANNOT CURE prostatitis. Consult doc. Good luck

They work differently and can be used together if Flomax alone still isn't helping all of your symptoms.
