Tamsulosin Side Effects

Tamsulosin Side Effects to Report

There are a number of side effects with tamsulosin that you should report to your healthcare provider, including, but not limited to:
 
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, including an unexplained skin rash, itching, hives, unexplained swelling, wheezing, or difficulty breathing or swallowing

 

  • Severe lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting

 

  • A painful erection of the penis that does not go away (priapism).
     

Tamsulosin Side Effects: Summary

You may experience some or none of the tamsulosin side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a tamsulosin side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
