Cardura for Prostate: 8 Reviews From Consumers

By    |   Wednesday, 01 Jun 2016 04:16 PM

Cardura is the brand name for doxazosin, an alpha-adrenergic blocker that relaxes prostate and bladder neck muscles. Reviews are mixed for this drug that allows easier urination for men with benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, an enlarged prostate.

Cardura also can be used for high blood pressure because it improves blood flow by relaxing veins and arteries.

These eight Cardura reviews, positive and negative, may give you an idea of how Cardura works for some men:

• “What a difference,” writes one reviewer at Drugs.com. “Very few night time trips to the toilet.” It also worked to help lower his blood pressure, which had been getting high, he notes.

• “Works pretty well, with 8 mg per day,” says another user. “Minimal side effects, such as some dizziness when I started, and some swelling of feet and ankles.”

• Some men say they’ve had problems with side effects, including dizziness, diminished libido, and bloating. “I quit taking drug and I hope pain and bloating will be gone in a couple of weeks,” a reviewer states on WebMD. “I won’t be taking this drug again.”

• However, another Cardura review at WebMD states, “It definitely keeps the plumbing going. Does make me dizzy when getting up from working out on my machine.” He adds: “I do think it negatively affects ability to get a strong erection but doesn’t seem to diminish sex drive (not necessarily a good combination!).”

• A customer taking 4 mg writes at Everyday Health, “I get up no more than once a night instead of 2 or 3 times.”

• “Started with this drug several years ago taking 1 mg,” another customer says at Everyday Health. “I am now taking 4 mg. It seems to work fine.”

• A man taking Cardura for both high blood pressure and prostate problems wrote to RxList to say: “After only 1 month it has affected my sexual desire, ability to maintain an erection, caused a dry mouth, sleepiness, fatigue, and heart palpitations.”

• But another RxList reviewer switching to Cardura for BPH says, "I wake up feeling fine! I used to have to get up 5-6 times per night with the terazosin, but I’m going to stick with Cardura for a very long time!"

Talk to your doctor about Cardura or other medications if you're seeking an option for your prostate health.
