Introduction

Alfunol is a selective antagonist of post-synaptic a1 adrenoreceptors, which are located in the prostate, bladder base, bladder neck, prostatic capsule, and prostatic urethra. Alfunol relaxes the tone of the prostate smooth muscle, prostate capsule, bladder neck and proximal urethra. It competitively and selectively binds to the post synaptic a1-adrenergic receptors in the lower urinary tract. It also relaxes sympathetic nervous stimulation, reduces resting urethral pressure and inhibits urethral hypertonia-induced sympathetic nervous stimulation. As an uroselective agent, Alfunol preferentially binds to prostatic a1 receptors, blockage of these receptors result in reduction of BPH symptoms, improvement of urine flow and decreased potential for hypertensive events.

Precaution

Alfunol should not be given to patients with moderate or severe hepatic insufficiency. Caution should be exercised when Alfuzosin is administered in patients with severe renal insufficiency. If symptoms of angina pectoris should newly appear or worsen, Alfunol should be discontinued.

Acute Overdose

Overdose of Alfunol should lead to hypotension; support of the cardiovascular system is of first importance. Restoration of blood pressure and normalization of heart rate may be accomplished by keeping the patient in the supine position.

If necessary, vasopressors should then be used, and the renal function should be monitored and supported as needed.
