►  Drug Interaction : Drug interaction of Tamsulosin is with Diuretics, ,  NA

  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Tamsulosin is metabolized by cytochrome P450 isoenzymes CYP2D6 and CYP3A4, and inhibitors of these isoenzymes may increase exposure to tamsulosin. It should not be used with a strong inhibitor of CYP3A4; caution is required when giving tamsulosin with a moderate inhibitor of CYP3A4, with strong or moderate inhibitors of CYP2D6, or in patients who are CYP2D6 poor metabolisers, particularly at oral tamsulosin doses higher than 400 micrograms daily. The hypotensive effects of tamsulosin may be enhanced by use with diuretics and other antihypertensives, and by alcohol and other drugs that cause hypotension. The risk of first-dose hypotension may be particularly increased in patients receiving beta blockers or calciumchannel blockers.,
