This manuscript details the longitudinal course of levomilnacipran-induced urinary hesitancy in 2 cases that were in a pivotal clinical trial, examining possible predisposing factors and treatment issues. This manuscript also reviews the literature comparing urinary hesitancy associated with levomilnacipran versus other antidepressants. Antidepressants that are potent norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors like levomilnacipran, may have increased rates of associated urinary hesitancy. The latter can cause significant discomfort and a compromised quality of life. Occasionally, it can progress to urinary retention necessitating an emergency medical intervention.

Plasma catecholamine levels were significantly elevated 5 h post paracetamol administration. Prazosin prevented hepatotoxicity when administered 1 h before a toxic paracetamol insult and importantly, when administered up to 1 h post paracetamol injection. Prazosin had no effect on paracetamol-induced depletion of hepatic GSH, paracetamol bioactivation or paracetamol-induced transcription of defence genes. Paracetamol toxicity is associated with marked accumulation of erythrocytes within hepatic sinusoids and prazosin completely prevented this accumulation.

Cyclophosphamide injection enhanced contraction pressure and time, representing the induction of OAB. Contraction pressure and time were significantly suppressed by tamsulosin treatment. c-Fos and NOS expressions in the neuronal voiding centers were enhanced by induction of OAB. OAB-induced c-Fos and NOS expressions were suppressed by tamsulosin treatment.

Preparations of beta-sitosterol and extracts of stinging nettle, medicinal pumpkin, and saw palmetto were obtained from several pharmaceutical companies. They were tested for their ability to inhibit [3H]tamsulosin binding to human prostatic alpha1-adrenoceptors and [3H]prazosin binding to cloned human alpha1A- and alpha1B-adrenoceptors. Inhibition of phenylephrine-stimulated [3H]inositol phosphate formation by cloned receptors was also investigated.
We used data from a randomized trial of CT scan vs. ultrasound in participants with suspected urolithiasis enrolled at 15 EDs between October 2011 and February 2013. The use of medical expulsive therapy was identified by the prescription of an alpha-blocker, calcium channel blocker, or steroid at the ED visit. The prevalence of alpha-blocker use in participants with ureteral stones on imaging was calculated, and multivariable models were used to examine risk factors for utilization.

Many minimally invasive interventional techniques as well as expectant treatment exist for the management of lower ureteric calculi. This study was conducted to evaluate th efficacy of tamsulosin as an expulsive pharmacologic therapy for the treatment of distal uretern stone.

In total, 82 of the 170 patients in Group 1 (48.2%) and 144 of the 186 patients in Group 2 (77.4%) (p = 0.002) were stone-free. Among the patients with stones 10 to 15 mm in diameter, the stone-free rate was 38.4% in Group 1 and 77.1% in Group 2 (p = 0.003). Average stone expulsion time was 10.6 days and 8.4 days in Groups 1 and 2, respectively. Ureteral colic occurred in 40 patients (23.5%) in Group 1, but only in 10 patients (5.3%) in Group 2 (p = 0.043). The only side effect of tamsulosin was slight dizziness in 5 of the 186 patients in Group 2 (2.6%).

We evaluated the effectiveness and safety of tamsulosin, administered as a further therapy, in patients previously unsuccessfully treated with combined expulsive 10-day therapy (tamsulosin + deflazacort) for distal ureteric stones. Ninety-one patients were enrolled and randomized into two groups, each receiving a different therapy for 10 days. Group A (46 patients) received a further cycle of tamsulosin (0.4 mg daily), and group B (45) did not. Age, gender, stone size, time to expulsion, number of acute episodes of colic during treatment and analgesic consumption were recorded. Patients who were not stone-free after the study period had ureteroscopy. The results were compared statistically using Student's t-, chi-square test and Fisher's exact test.

The success rate was 60.5% (23 of 38) in the tamsulosin group, 48.6% (17 of 35) in the nifedipine group, and 36.8% (14 of 38) in the placebo group (P = .118). In the subgroup analysis, stones 10-20 mm had significantly greater success rates in the tamsulosin (13 of 21, 61.9%) and nifedipine (15 of 25, 60%) groups compared with the placebo group (6 of 23, 26.1%; P = .024), but not for stones 5-9 mm (P = .128). The number needed to treat was 2.9 for tamsulosin and 3 for nifedipine. Adverse events were more frequent in the nifedipine than in the placebo group (28.5% vs 2.6%, respectively, P = .009), but without a significant difference between the nifedipine and tamsulosin (28.5% vs 15.8%, P = .15) or the tamsulosin and placebo (P = .54) groups. No difference was found among the groups with regard to pain intensity, interval to clearance, or steinstrasse.

These results showed for the first time at clinical level the anti-inflammatory properties of HESr, already indicated in BPH-related LUTS. Thus, HESr could be of interest to prevent unfavourable evolution in patients with CPI.

A new spectrophotometric method for the estimation of tamsulosin hydrochloride in pharmaceutical dosage forms has been developed and validated. The method is based on reaction between drug and bromophenol blue and complex was measured at 421 nm. The slope, intercept and correlation coefficient was found to be 0.054, -0.020 and 0.999, respectively. Method was validated in terms of specificity, linearity, range, precision and accuracy. The developed method can be used to determine drug in both tablet and capsule formulations. Reaction was optimized using three parameters i.e., concentration of the dye, pH of the buffer, volume of the buffer and shaking time. Maximum stability of the chromophore was achieved by using pH 2 and 2 ml volume of buffer. Shaking time kept was 2 min and concentration of the dye used was 2 ml of 0.05% w/v solution. Method was validated in terms of linearity, precision, range, accuracy, LOD and LOQ and stochiometry of the method was also established using Mole ratio and Job's method of continuous variation. The dye benzonoid form (blue color) of dye ionized into quinonoid form (purple color) in presence of buffer and reacts with protonated form of drug in 1:1 ratio and forms an ion-pair complex (yellow color).
Intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS) occurs in 2% of cataract surgeries and is associated with an increased risk of surgical complications. These complications can be avoided when high-risk patients are identified by preoperative screening and appropriate measures are used intraoperatively. The purpose of this article is to review emerging risk factors for IFIS and to summarize management strategies used in IFIS.

ρ-Da1a, a 65 amino-acid peptide, has subnanomolar affinity and high selectivity for the human α(1) (A) -adrenoceptor subtype. The purpose of this study was to characterize the pharmacological effects of ρ-Da1a on prostatic function, both in vivo and in vitro.

Currently, alpha-blocker is becoming first-line drug therapy for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Although highly effective results are obtained with this therapy, a difference between the objective and subjective response rates is reported. To prevent unnecessary medical treatment and to predict the alpha-blocker response, we characterized the clinical features of alpha-blocker responders in men with BPH.

Of the 524 participants who were identified with a ureteral stone on CT scan and discharged from the ED, 375 (71.4%) received an alpha-blocker, and 2 (<1%) received a steroid. There was no significant difference in alpha-blocker use for participants based on stone size or location. However, there was a 3.6-fold difference in alpha-blocker use between the lowest and highest use ED sites. In the multivariable analysis, ED site was independently associated with utilization of alpha-blockers.
Patients with below and above median baseline for one parameter, for example, IPSS had rather similar values for the other two parameters, for example, Q(max) and BOOI. Likewise, patients based upon baseline strata for one parameter had rather similar improvements of the other two parameters. Most importantly, patients with below and above median treatment-associated improvements of one parameter, for example, BOOI exhibited only small if any difference for alterations of the other two parameters, for example, IPPS and Q(max).

Current use of alpha-blockers was associated with an increased risk of hip/femur fracture and with the start of a new treatment episode. The effect seemed to be confined to patients who used alpha-blockers for cardiovascular disease. Caution with respect to first-dose effects related to the initiation of a new episode of alpha-blocker treatment is advised.
