Flomax Patent Expiry

The patent on Tamsulosin Capsules (Flomax) is due to expire in early 2006. The manufacturers are planning to release Flomaxtra XL tablets soon and a statement is expected. This product will contain the same drug at the same dose in a slightly different extended release presentation.

The manufacturers have gained agreement from the Scottish Medicines Consortium that Flomaxtra is acceptable for use as an alternative to Flomax capsules.

Action: Assuming that Flomax remains on the market up until the patent expiry, when generic versions become available, it should continue to be used.
