This is Dr. David
there are no drug interactions in this combination of medications.
tamsulosin is flomax and along with finasteride is used to treat enlarged prostate to help your urine to flow out easier.
simvastatin is to help lower cholesterol
clopidogrel is plavix and is a blood thinner which can cause bruising and bleeding but helps prevent blood clots.
this combination of medications is safe to take
most doctors prescribe tamsulosin to take before bed time to help decrease the number of times you have to urinate at night time.
