I was taking Flowmax and had to stop as I broke out in hives. Since I've been taking doxazosin I haven't broke out in hives but I do have a slight rash on my back and arms, but I don't know if it's the medicine?
You may have to try another drug:
All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects. Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome when using Doxazosin:
Dizziness; drowsiness; lightheadedness; nasal congestion; tiredness; weakness.
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Doxazosin:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); chest pain; fainting; irregular heartbeat; prolonged, painful erection; severe or prolonged dizziness or headache; shortness of breath; swelling of the ankles, feet, or hands; vision changes"
