INTRODUCTION

TEMSIN F is a combination of Finasteride and Tamsulosin which belongs to the group of medicines called 5-Alpha reductase inhibitors and Alpha blockers respectively. It is used to treat the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in adult men. 

BPH (also known enlarged prostate) is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland caused due to increased production of a stress hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in aging men. Symptoms of BPH includes urinary problems such as difficulty in passing urine, urinary incontinence (unintentional passing of urine), frequent urination at night, sexual dysfunction or painful ejaculation.

Finasteride is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It reduces the production of a stress hormone called dihydrotestosterone that causes abnormal enlargement of the prostate gland. Tamsulosin is an alpha-1 blocker. It relaxes the smooth muscles surrounding the bladder and prostate and improves the flow of urine. Collectively, they shrink the size of an enlarged prostate and improve bladder or urinary symptoms in patients with BPH.

Before taking TEMSIN F inform your doctor if you any liver, kidney, or heart problems. You must also inform your doctor if you are scheduled for any upcoming eye surgery (cataract). During treatment with TEMSIN F, your doctor will regularly monitor your serum PSA levels (prostate specific antigen) to rule out risk of unwanted side effects.

Women who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant should not come in contact with TEMSIN F as it may cause serious harm to the growing fetus. Men taking TEMSIN F should use condom during sexual intercourse to prevent seminal exposure of TEMSIN F to their partners.

The most common side effects of taking TEMSIN F are feeling dizzy while standing up, decrease in sex drive or ejaculation problems. These side effects are usually temporary and disappears once the therapy is stopped. However, consult your doctor if they trouble you. Also, inform your doctor if you any experience any prolonged, painful erections (priapism) or changes in your breasts (such as breast pain or tenderness, lumps in breast, or nipple discharge) after taking TEMSIN F.
