 4  High Blood Pressure Slight feeling of brain fog that fades as the morning progresses. I learned of this drug after reading a report in the American Journal of Hypertension regarding morning hypertension. A study was conducted in Japan and referenced several meds that show promise for people with problematic morning high blood pressure. This drug has proven to work well for patients with sympathetic nervous system hypertension, which I suffer from. Drug works like a champ for me, lowered BP from waking 170/100 to 140/90 with no ill-effects. Plus it helps with my occasional BPH flares. Make sure to strive for the lowest effective dose.

 5  Enlarged Prostate Decreased blood pressure caused dizziness when I stood up for about 6 weeks. No longer a problem. Symptoms of enlarged prostate were beginning to be severe before beginning this medication. Symptoms remain greatly diminished so far. M 76 8 years
2 mg 1X D
 5  High Blood Pressure/Prostate Small rash on wrist which went away after about 1 week. Cardio recommended low dose (1/2 of a 2 mg.tablet./day) because I get rashes easily from Rx drugs. This stuff took 10-15 points off my top number BP. And it really helped my enlarged prostate....I'm peeing much better now. Been on it for 3 months... great stuff so far. Cheap too. M 65 3 months
1 mg 1X D
 5  enlarged prostate With an enlarged prostate the need to urinate often came suddenly and urgently, and then it was difficult to 'hold' for very long. On the road or in public I would sometimes get desparate to find a bathroom, quick. Very quick. Wetting my pants was not an option. This generic form of Cardura helps me with that. The signal 'you need to go' comes on a little slower, and usually, I can 'hold it' longer. Oftentimes the urgency fades again, if I cann't get to the bathroom right away. Doxazosin doesn't make everything work the way it did before my enlarged prostate came along, but it certainly helps. Enough to where I'm comfortable putting off some kind of expensive surgical procedure. Indeed, my symptoms haven't worsened in the last 3 & 1/2 years I've been taking it. M 60 3 years

 3  Better urinary flow. Reduced blood pressure which was tolerable but excessive. Went back to Flomax as it had less blood pressure side effect. Took 1 mg for 30 days. It worked well for improved flow but blood pressure dropped. M 58 30 days

DOXAZOSIN MESYLATE  (DOXAZOSIN MESYLATE):  Doxazosin is used alone or with other drugs to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. Doxazosin is also used in men to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH). It does not shrink the prostate, but it works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and part of the bladder. This helps to relieve symptoms of BPH such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, weak stream, and the need to urinate frequently or urgently (including during the middle of the night). Doxazosin belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha blockers.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
