Rapaflo Capsules


Patients should be instructed to take RAPAFLO once daily with a meal. Patients should be instructed about the possible occurrence of symptoms related to postural hypotension (such as dizziness), and should be cautioned about driving, operating machinery, or performing hazardous tasks until they know how RAPAFLO will affect them. This is especially important for those with low blood pressure or who are taking antihypertensive medications.

The most common side effect seen with RAPAFLO is an orgasm with reduced or no semen. This side effect does not pose a safety concern and is reversible with discontinuation of the product.

The patient should be instructed to tell his ophthalmologist about the use of RAPAFLO before cataract surgery or other procedures involving the eyes, even if the patient is no longer taking RAPAFLO.
