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

Hi Doctor, I have been prescribed Catapress 100 for Menapause symptoms..... finding it hard to stay asleep as I am forever having hot flushes. Catapress 100 has helped me but as a result I have gained 7 kilos in the past year. I am 54 years old. I do weight training with a personal trainer 3-4 times per week, I eat moderately, my eating habit has not changed. I am at a loss as why this has happened. Everyone keeps telling me to change my diet and do more cardio, I understand I am not 44 years old but I have excersised more now than ever. Do you think that this maybe the result of taking Catapress 100. I also take Crestor 20mg for cholesterol which I have for the past 4 years Regards,
