What is doxazosin?

Cardura 1 mg Tab
Drug Name: DOXAZOSIN-ORAL
Other Brand Names: Cardura
Uses: Doxazosin is used alone or in combination with other drugs to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication is also used in men to treat the symptoms of a prostate gland condition called BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as enlarged prostate). It does not shrink the prostate, but it works by relaxing the muscles in the bladder neck and prostate. Relaxing these muscles leads to relief of symptoms of BPH such as the feeling of needing to urinate frequently or urgently, weak stream, difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, and the need to urinate during the middle of the night. Doxazosin belongs to a class of medications called alpha blockers.
All forms of drug: doxazosin Tab , doxazosin ER 24 hr Tab
