My husband was seen at the ER this morning for urinary blockage. He was catheterized and given an RX for Flomax. Our pharmacy would not fill the RX, stating he was already on Tamsulosin 0.4 mg and Dutasteride 0.5mg. Should he take both of these in place of the Flomax?

My husband currently takes Tamsulosin 0.4 mg cap once daily, 1/2 hour after lunch. His symptoms have increased within the last 2 weeks. Now feeling the constant urge to urinate even though he evacuates throughout the day and night. Can this current dosage be increased to relieve these worsening symptoms and what dosage should he then start taking? Thank you.
