From Times Wire Services

Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s experimental drug for prostate enlargement reduced symptoms without significant blood pressure or heart side effects, the company said.

Silodosin, which Corona-based Watson intends to sell as Rapaflo, had “minimal effects” on blood pressure and heart rate during yearlong tests in people who took it alone or in combination with drugs to treat erectile dysfunction, the company said.
