Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Your question was not clear.
Do you mean you were prescribed Tamsulosin 0.4mg by your urologist during your recent visit? You did not start this drug because you were worried that this might interact with other drugs you were taking i.e HCT 25mg, Pot Chloride 20, Simvastatin , is my understanding correct?
If yes, you should not worry because Tamsulosin has no major interactions with the above drugs that should not be stopped by you for no reason.
