Lidoflak is the brand name for silodosin, a selective antagonist of alpha-1 adrenoreceptors

Silodosinis a selective antagonist of post-synaptic alpha-1 adrenoreceptors, which are located in the human prostate, bladder base, bladder neck, prostatic capsule, and prostatic urethra.
adrenoreceptorscan cause smooth muscle in these tissues to relax, resulting in an improvement in urine flow and a reduction in BPH symptoms.
affinity of silodosinto the three subtypes of the alpha-1 adrenoreceptors(alpha-1A, alpha-1B, and alpha-1D) was conducted. The results of the study demonstrated that silodosinbinds with high affinity to the alpha-1A subtype.
