Doxazosin is used for the treatment of hypertension and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This drug belongs to the group of alpha-blockers. It acts by relaxing muscles in the blood vessels, which in turn reduces the blood pressure. In men with benign prostatic hyperplasia, this medicine acts by relaxing muscles in the area of the urethra, which improves urinary functions.
Doxazosin is a quinazole used for treatment of urinary retention caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia and hypertension. This disease may be caused by various problems, such as urinating problems, pain during urination, etc.
Doxazosin is also known as Cardura and Carduran (its brand formulations). It was manufactured by Pfizer and approved by FDA in 2005.
