There is alot of information available...
Alpha blockers (doxazosin, prazosin, tamsulosin, terazosin, and afluzosin) are a class of medications used to treat BPH. Alpha blockers work by relaxing the smooth muscle tissue in your prostate and at the opening to your bladder. When this muscle tissue relaxes, it is easier for your urine to flow. This may help if you have difficulty starting to urinate and a weak urine stream.
