Action point


A common side effect of the medication Tamsulosin (Flomax) that is used to treat urinary incontinence is dizziness.

This usually resolves after the second or third dose. If the dizziness persists, worsens or is very severe, stop the medication and speak to your doctor.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
