Rapaflo is used for:

Treating the signs and symptoms of enlarged prostate (benign
prostatic hyperplasia [BPH]).

Rapaflo is an alpha-blocker. It works by relaxing muscles in
the prostate and bladder, which helps to improve urine flow and reduce symptoms
of BPH.

Do NOT use Rapaflo if:

  • you are allergic to any
    ingredient in Rapaflo

  • you have severe kidney or liver
    problems

  • you are taking ketoconazole,
    clarithromycin, itraconazole, nefazodone, or ritonavir

  • you are taking another
    alpha-blocker (eg, prazosin)
