Cardura XL (doxazosin) for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Used Cardura XL on/off for several years now and more regularly recently. Wanted new prescription after moving to Europe, however doctor didn't now the product and recommended as alternative Tamsulosin (Pradif T) which did not provide any relieve with urinating especially at night (blocked). Switched back to my remaining Cardura XL and found equivalent product in Europe called Cardura CR. Just perfect flow, day and night! No side effects.

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Works pretty well, with 8mg per day. Minimal side effects, such as some dizziness when I started, and some swelling of feet and ankles.

Cardura (doxazosin) for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: I originally began doxazosin 4mg for blood pressure many years ago. Over the years I needed additional medicines for blood pressure but continued taking doxazosin 4mg twice a day. I had been told that it would be helpful in maintaining urine flow. Not long ago I began taking Proscar. I thought that the Cardura would no longer be needed so I stopped. Within 2-3 days there was a definite reduction in urine flow. I repeated the off, then on again routine 3 times with the same rather dramatic results. I will continue with the doxazosin. PS: I have never noticed side effects at all.

For High Blood Pressure: It works better than any other blood pressure medicine I have taken and I have taken many including 3 more that I take beside the doxazosin. I take the doxazosin at night or break it in half and take it in the afternoon if my pressure is running high. It dose not work at all for me regarding prostate issues.

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: While taking this medication, I suffered from all of the side effects, except from the long or painful erection. I had trouble sleeping, agitated, and irritable. I thought maybe it was due to my chemical imbalance, which it may have been, but those symptoms were exacerbated by this drug to the point of continued stress and disquiet behavior. Other symptoms include tightness in the chest resembling asthma symptoms or bronchial distress to the sinus problems mention in the side effects.

For : I am 79, incontinence has been a big problem for past 6 years. For past 3 years on 4mg/day DOXAZOSIN, urine rate = 100ml/pee during the day. At night, 200 to 300ml/pee --- an awkward but manageable condition. Without DOXAZOSIN, urine rate drops considerably with severe (intolerable) spasms. Thank goodness for DOXAZOSIN.

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Used for about 2 weeks, ramped up dosage from 1mg 1st week to 2mg 2nd week (final dosage was to be 4mg). Had a rash with associated itching (initially thought it was Poison Ivy) appeared about 3 days after treatment started and became severe during second week. Still waiting for rash to completely go away 1 week after stopping treatment. Did help to improve urine flow and reduced urgency feelings I was having about every 2 hours to about 6 hours. I could sleep through the night! No other noticeable side effects.

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: For me personally, generic doxazosin is just as effective and a fraction of the cost of a patented big drug company product.

Cardura (doxazosin) for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: I found cardura a wonderful drug which made my urine flow so easily and cured the discomfort I used to feel during urination. I felt no side effects either.

For : Took 1 8mg Cardura daily. Experienced dizziness and nausea for the first 3 days but later adjusted to the medication and maintained pressure around 120/80. On doctor's advise, Cardura discontinued and replaced with alternative medication due to excessively fast pulse/heart rate up to 100/s after 6 months on Cardura
