Alfuzosin 10mg SR
Z-FLO is indicated for the treatment of signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Z-FLO is a non-subtype specific alpha (1)-adrenergic blocking agent that exhibits selectivity for alpha (1)-adrenergic receptors in the lower urinary tract. Inhibition of these adrenoreceptors leads to the relaxation of smooth muscle in the bladder neck and prostate, resulting in the improvement in urine flow and a reduction in symptoms in benign prostate hyperplasia. Z-FLO also inhibits the vasoconstrictor effect of circulating and locally released catecholamines (epinephrine and norepinephrine), resulting in peripheral vasodilation.
