hi,
welcome to healthcaremagic forum
answer to your question is 'NO' becoz omnic or tamsulosin is an alpha-blocker . It works by relaxing muscles in the bladder and prostate. This may improve urine flow rates and decrease urinary hesitancy/urgency. This medication should not be used to treat high blood pressure.where as catapress effectively relieves hot flashes ,it is an alternative of hormone therapy to treat hot flushes.hope that it will help you
