What is Uroxatral
Uroxatral is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. It’s taken to help patients relax muscles in the bladder neck and prostate, thus, making urination easier. Alfuzosin is taken by men to improve urination if they have benign prostatic hyperplasia.
How to use Medicine
Take this medication according to the directions given by doctors and written on the label. Regular doses can be changed to guarantee the best results. Most patients take 10 mg of Uroxatral orally once a day, right after the meal. It’s not allowed to take this drug on an empty stomach. While undergoing this treatment, your prostate and blood pressure should be checked regularly. This medicine lowers blood pressure and may lead to fainting or dizziness, so you need to avoid getting up fast from any lying or sitting position. Some conditions may cause blood pressure to get low, including diarrhea, vomiting, and increased sweating.

The intake of Uroxatral may impair normal reactions or thinking, so be careful when driving or doing other things that require your full alertness. Drinking alcohol when using this drug may cause unwanted side effects. You shouldn’t start this treatment if you have severe or moderate liver conditions. Alfuzosin may affect pupils during any cataract surgery.
Don’t start taking it if you have any possible allergic reactions. Inform doctors about any other health conditions that you have to be on a safe side, including low or high blood pressure, kidney problems, QT syndrome, angina, heart diseases, hardened arteries, prostate cancer, etc. Although Uroxatral is not intended to be taken by women, its intake is not expected to cause any harm to nursing or unborn babies. This medication isn’t approved to be used by anyone who is less than 18 years old.
They are dangerous and should be avoided because drug interactions change the way meds work and increase a possible risk of side effects. Some of the most common pharmaceutical products that potentially interact with Uroxatral include other alpha-blockers, ED meds, pills for pulmonary hypertension, azole antifungals, HIV protease inhibitors, some antibiotics, antiviral meds, and heart drugs. Tell doctors about any other prescription and over-the-counter drugs that you’re taking in addition to herbal supplements, minerals, and vitamins.
Get emergency medical help if you experience any allergic symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, hives, and swelling. Call your physician if you have such side effects as chest pain, lightheadedness, loss of appetite, upper stomach pain, dark urine, jaundice, clay-colored stools, and priapism. Uroxatral may cause mild side effects, including headaches, dizziness, sudden tiredness, and cold symptoms, like sneezing, sore throat, and stuffy nose. Go to the hospital if any of them become bothersome.
