What is Doxazosin?

Doxazosin is a drug indicated for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Doxazosin can be used in patients with BPH, whether they are hypertensive or normotensive. While changes in blood pressure in normotensive patients with BPH are clinically insignificant, patients who meet both conditions, HBP and BPH, can be effectively treated.

How does it work?

Doxazosin exerts its vasodilatory effect, by means of the selective and competitive blocking of postsynaptic alpha-1 adrenoceptors. Doxazosin administration causes a clinically significant reduction in blood pressure as a result of a decrease in systemic vascular resistance. This effect is thought to be the result of selective blocking of alpha-1 adrenoceptors located in the vasculature.

With a daily dose, a clinically significant decrease in blood pressure is present throughout the day for up to 24 hours after the last dose. The reduction in blood pressure appears gradually, reaching a maximum reduction of 2-6 hours after administration. In patients with hypertension, blood pressure during treatment with doxazosin was similar, both supine and sitting, unlike treatment with non-selective blocking agents of alpha adrenoceptors.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Doxazosin uses include being indicated in the treatment of hypertension and can be used as initial therapy to control blood pressure in most patients. In patients who are not adequately controlled with a single antihypertensive drug, doxazosin can be used alone or in combination with a thiazide diuretic, a beta-blocker, a calcium antagonist, or an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

This treatment has been indicated by your doctor specifically for you and your process. The dose will be established by the doctor depending on the needs of each patient. Depending on the individual response, the doctor may modify the doxazosin dosage. Faithfully follow your doctor's instructions regarding dosage and how to use it. Doxazosin can be administered both in the morning and at night.

Arterial hypertension

Doxazosin is administered orally. The usual dose is 2-4 mg once a day. It is recommended to start treatment with the administration of 1 mg once a day, for 1 or 2 weeks. Depending on the response of each patient, the dose can be increased to 2 mg, 4 mg, 8 mg or 16 mg daily as a maximum dose, at intervals of 1 or 2 weeks between them, until the desired reduction in the patient's blood pressure is achieved.

Doxazosin can be taken with other medications that your doctor has prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure.
