My doctor prescribed four tablets a day of Terrazosin, two in the morning and two in the evening. However, the pharmacist could only give me 60 tablets. I called my insurance provider, BlueCrossBlueShield of Louisiana. BCBSLA's explaination was, "we are only following FDA guidelines for this medicine". Is this true? If so, is this drug dangerous?
What strength are the tablets? Why did he order it for you? It has the risk of lowering your blood pressure too much and is supposed to be started out with increasing doses. The probablem is probably more in the amount that was ordered daily. Maintenance dose of it is usually 5 mg once a day. Max dose a day is 20 mg, but you wouldn't start out on that, or the 5 mg.
