Why do I need this medicine?

Indoramin is used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of the prostate).

This medicine helps relieve symptoms of prostate enlargement such as difficulty in passing urine, slow or interrupted flow of urine, frequent urination and dribbling after passing urine.

Indoramin may also be used to treat high blood pressure.

This medicine may be used to treat other conditions as decided by your doctor.

How do I take this medicine?

Take Indoramin exactly as directed by your doctor or according to the instructions on the label. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Indoramin must be taken regularly for it to be effective. Continue taking this medicine even when you feel better. Do not stop taking it unless instructed by the doctor.

What should I do if I have forgotten to take this medicine?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and return to your normal dosing schedule.

DO NOT double a dose under any circumstances.

If you often forget to take your medicine, let your doctor and pharmacist know.

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you have a heart failure (weakness and inability of the heart to pump blood) as this medicine may not be suitable for you.

Do not take Indoramin if you are currently taking a medicine to treat depression known as monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as isocarboxacid, phenelzine and tranylcypromine.

You may also feel drowsy or dizzy when getting up from a sitting or lying down position, especially if you are taking this medicine for the first time.
