The active ingredient of Fuzon Tablet is Alfuzosin Hydrochloride. This belongs to a group of medicines alpha-blockers.
Fuzon can be used to treat the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH). This is when the prostate gland enlarges (hyperplasia), but the growth is not cancerous (it is benign). It can cause problems in passing water (urine). This happens mainly in older men.
Alfuzosin is a quinazoline derivative which exhibits selectively for alpha 1 adrenergic receptors in the lower urinary tract. Blockade of these adrenoreceptors causes relaxation of smooth muscle in the bladder neck and prostate,resulting in improvement in urine flow and a reduction in symptoms of BPH.

Direction to Use
Take Fuzon exactly as your doctor tells you to. Swallow the tablet whole with a drink of water - do not break or chew the tablet.
Your first dose may make you feel dizzy or faint, so it is important that you take it just before you go to bed. If you feel dizzy or weary, or if you start sweating, remain lying down until these symptoms have completely gone.
If you forget to take a dose, do not worry, just take the next dose when it is due and then carry on as before. Do not take two doses together to make up for a forgotten dose.
You are advised not to drink alcohol while you are on Fuzon. Alcohol increases the risk of side-effects from Fuzon such as feeling faint or dizzy.
