prostate conditions. Since doxazosin can be used to treat blood pressure issues, do I need to continue to take both?
Doxazosin is commonly prescribed to treat an enlarged prostate and to control high blood pressure. It relaxes the muscles of the prostate and bladder and also relaxes blood vessels throughout the body. This allows them to open wider so that blood can flow more easily.
Enalapril is a prescription medicine that has been licensed to treat several conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. It is part of a class of drugs called angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, or ACE inhibitors for short.
The drug is licensed to treat a number of conditions. For adults, these uses include: Controlling high blood pressure (hypertension); Congestive heart failure treatment; Treatment of left ventricular dysfunction.
The treatments of both meds are different, Doxazosin is prescribed for the treatment of enlarged prostate where as Enalapril treats several condition related to the heart & blood vessels, since the doc has prescribed both meds he/she would have known your medical condition & then prescribed both meds.
It is not recommended to substitute Doxazosin & or Enalapril, maybe it would be best to seek an second opinion.
Take care, bets wishes!
