Could Flomax actually be contraindicated if a patient has a hypocontracile bladder with no obstruction in that it relaxes the bladder, conceivably making the bladder even less likely to contract with sufficient strength? Thank you.
Flomax is useful if there is obstruction at the bladder neck or prostate. It does have some bladder relaxing properties, but to a much lesser extent that it is hardly noticeable.
But if there is no obstruction at the bladder neck, there is no purpose of giving flomax . In fact bladder relaxing properties may come into picture as you anticipated & may worsen the situation. If there was an obstruction benefits would have outweighed the side effects.
I hope this answers your question.
