    Can I take two Flomaxtra tablets a day. Reply
    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    Hi, No! Flomax (Tamsulosin) should not be taken twice a day. Since the recommended dosage for 0.2 or 0.4 mg should be once daily about 30 minutes after the same meal time each day. Changing the dosage of your own is not advisable. So please do consult your physician if you really want to increase or decrease your dose. Since your physician would suggest you the exact dosage based on your health conditions.
