What is doxazosin?


Doxazosin is in a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. It causes the blood vessels (veins and arteries) to relax and expand, improving blood flow. Doxazosin also relaxes muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.

Doxazosin is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

Doxazosin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Important information about doxazosin


You should not use this medication if you are allergic to doxazosin or similar medicines such as prazosin (Minipress), tamsulosin (Flomax), or terazosin (Hytrin).

Doxazosin lowers blood pressure and may cause dizziness or fainting, especially when you first start taking it, or when you start taking it again. To avoid falling, take the first dose of this medicine at bedtime. You may wish to continue taking doxazosin only at bedtime if it causes you to feel light-headed.

You may feel very dizzy when you first wake up. Be careful when standing or sitting up from a lying position.

If you stopped taking doxazosin for any reason and have started taking it again, you may feel especially dizzy or light-headed after your first few doses.

Doxazosin can affect the pupils of your eyes during cataract surgery. If you have cataract surgery during your treatment with this medicine, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you take doxazosin. Do not stop using the medication before surgery unless your surgeon tells you to.

How should I take doxazosin?

To be sure this medication is helping your condition, your blood pressure or prostate will need to be checked on a regular basis. It is important that you not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor.

If you are being treated for high blood pressure, keep using doxazosin even if you feel fine. High blood pressure often has no symptoms.

Store doxazosin at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What happens if I miss a dose?


Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

If you miss doses for several days in a row, call your doctor before taking any additional doses. You may need to use a lower dose of doxazosin for a short time.
