ABOUT RAPAFLO® (silodosin)
RAPAFLO® relieves both your
obstructive and irritative BPH
When it comes to BPH, the choice to
seek medical help is often based on how “bothersome” or “disruptive” BPH symptoms are to your daily life.
Like many patients, you may have suffered with BPH symptoms for weeks, months, or even years before seeking treatment. If you've been prescribed or are currently taking RAPAFLO®, the good news is you have a treatment proven to alleviate a range of BPH symptoms.
- Hesitancy and straining (finding it difficult to start urinating)
- Weak stream (a trickle is all that
- Intermittency (stopping and starting while urinating)
- Incomplete emptying, or voiding (feeling your bladder is
not completely empty)
- Frequency (having to go again less than 2 hours after finishing)
- Urgency (having to go “right now”)
- Nocturia (getting up at night to urinate)
You want relief now. And you want relief to last. In two 12-week clinical studies, many patients taking RAPAFLO® (vs a placebo) reported that their BPH symptoms continually decreased throughout the 12-week period, beginning in as few as 3 to 4 days. In other words, these patients experienced notable symptom relief within a few days that continued to improve over time.
Patients recorded both their obstructive and irritative symptoms throughout the 12-week study, which yielded a composite score called the International Prostate Symptom Score, or IPSS. In this case, the lower the score, the milder the symptoms. (Our BPH Symptom
Calculator is based on this system.)
A STUDY IN RELIEF
This graph shows how patients taking RAPAFLO® recorded a greater decrease
BPH symptoms over time than did patients taking a placebo.
Combined data from two 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled multicenter studies conducted in 923 patients (466 received RAPAFLO® and 457 received placebo once daily).
TAKE THE 90-DAY CHALLENGE*
In the RAPAFLO® studies, many patients saw their BPH symptoms improve over 90 days
of therapy. If you've been prescribed RAPAFLO®, challenge yourself to stick with treatment
for 90 days. To make it easier, ask your healthcare provider for a 90-day instead of a 30-day
prescription. You'll enjoy greater savings on a 90-day prescription and won't have to refill
as often, with fewer trips to the pharmacy for RAPAFLO®.†
