Study Description
Brief Summary:
In the past ten years, newer drugs with more selective affinity for the alpha-receptor have been introduced. Alfuzosin (Uroxatral) and Tamulosin(Flomax are two second generation alpha-blockers. In the course of our clinical proctice, both drugs have been used routinely. This retrospective comparison is intended to be a priliminary comparison of their effectiveness and side effects.
