Tamsulosin, a third-generation uroselective α 1A adrenergic receptor blocker (antagonist), has been approved for the treatment of signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia for more than two decades. Apart from this approved use, more recent evidence has been published regarding the off-label use of tamsulosin in various other urological conditions. However, further research is needed regarding the use of tamsulosin in these indications. This review highlights the possible therapeutic uses of tamsulosin for the management of various urological conditions.
