are that it has some adverse risks for elderly patients. Is that correct?
Sorry this question was not answered earlier for you. After researching your question I found this.
"... Geriatric Use
The safety and effectiveness profile of Cardura in BPH was similar in the elderly (age ≥ 65 years) and younger (age < 65 years) patients.
For hypertension: Clinical studies of Cardura did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently from younger subjects. Other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy."
