Forms and presentation
Prolonged release Tablets: Box of 30.

Composition
Each tablet contains: Alfuzosine HCl: 10 mg. Excipients: lactose monohydrate, hypromellose (E464), povidone K25, magnesium stearate (E470b).

Properties
In benign hyperplasia of the prostate, the functional disturbance is not caused solely by the enlarged prostate gland, but also by the stimulation of nerves which in turn cause increased tension in the smooth muscle of the lower urinary tract and thus lead to problems when urination. By blocking the transmission of this nerve stimulation in the region of the prostate, Alfuzosine HCl brings about a relaxation of this tension and therefore makes it easier to void the urine.
