Your doctor has specifically prescribed RAPAFLO® rather than a generic product. That's because he or she believes it is the best alpha-blocker to relieve your symptoms of BPH. RAPAFLO® is highly selective in targeting the prostate, bladder base and neck, and urethra. For this reason, it is important to be sure you insist on the exact medicine your doctor prescribed, not a substitution.
TAKING RAPAFLO® (silodosin)
There is no generic substitute for RAPAFLO®
ENSURE THE MEDICINE
YOU RECEIVE IS RAPAFLO®
- Your name is on the bottle.
- The dose is correct.
- It says RAPAFLO® on the bottle.
- The capsules are the right size, shape, and color.
A Once-Daily Capsule for BPH
Symptom Relief—Day and Night
RAPAFLO® is prescribed to be taken as 1 capsule by mouth each day with a meal.
If you have difficulty swallowing pills and capsules, you may carefully open the RAPAFLO® capsule and
sprinkle the powder on a tablespoonful of applesauce. The applesauce should be swallowed within 5
chewing—and followed with an 8-ounce glass of cool water to ensure the powder is
completely swallowed. Be sure to follow your healthcare provider's advice on how to take RAPAFLO®.
How to Store RAPAFLO®
Store RAPAFLO® at room temperature and away from light and moisture.
Keep RAPAFLO® capsules out of the reach of children.
DON'T STOP TAKING RAPAFLO® WHEN YOUR SYMPTOMS IMPROVE
When you start taking RAPAFLO®, you may notice that your BPH symptoms begin to improve quickly.* That's a sign that RAPAFLO® is working, but it is NOT a sign to stop taking RAPAFLO®. In fact, you should continue taking RAPAFLO® exactly as prescribed, for 2 reasons:
- Your BPH symptoms are likely to return if you stop treating them.
- When you take RAPAFLO® according to your medication schedule, your symptoms continue to improve.
*Report any side effects to your healthcare provider.
