About Alfugress 10mg Tablet 10's

Alfugress 10mg Tablet 10's belongs to the group of medicines called alpha-blockers used to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy. Benign prostatic hyperplasia occurs due to non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland due to the multiplication of the cells. Benign prostatic hypertrophy/hyperplasia mostly occurs in older men.
 
Alfugress 10mg Tablet 10's contains ‘Alfuzosin’ that works by blocking the receptors (alpha 1) on the prostate gland, bladder and urethra (urine pipe). Alfugress 10mg Tablet 10's relaxes the muscles of the bladder and prostate; this reduces the narrowing of the urethra. Thereby, helps in relieving the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia and makes it easier to pass urine.
