Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Veltam is Tamulosin and is used in cases of Benign prostate enlargement it helps to relaxes the muscles in the prostate gland and bladder. This helps to improve symptoms such as difficulty in passing urine, slow or interrupted flow of urine, frequent urination and dribbling after passing urine.
This medicine has to be continued till your problem is controlled and usually it is till you need the conservative treatment.The other treatment is surgical resection of prostate.So if you have to avoid surgical treatment you need to take it till it is required.
Thanks
