Description

Tamzeline Pharmacodynamics
Selectively and competitively blocks the postsynaptic alpha 1a-adrenoreceptors located in the smooth muscle of the prostate, bladder neck and prostatic part of the urethra. It reduces the tone of the smooth muscles of the prostate, bladder neck and the prostatic part of the urethra, improving the outflow of urine. Simultaneously the symptoms of obstruction and irritation of the urinary tract associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia are reduced. The therapeutic effect occurs 2 weeks after the start of treatment. Its tropism to the alpha 1a-adrenoreceptors in the urinary bladder is 20 times greater than its ability to interact with the alpha 1b-adrenoreceptors in the vascular smooth muscle. Due to this high selectivity, it does not cause any clinically significant reduction in systemic blood pressure both in patients with arterial hypertension and in patients with normal baseline blood pressure.

 

Indications
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (treatment of dysuric disorders).
