Hytrin (terazosin) "Have been using Hytrin for about a year. It has lowered my blood pressure, helps me sleep and urinate and able to empty my bladder. Has not affected my sex life at all. Have woken and been dizzy, but I am able to slow myself and watch where I am going."

Hytrin (terazosin) "Well I have blood pressure that is normally high, but sometimes normal. I have only been on Hytrin for a few days. The first day it made me very dizzy and fill very bad. My blood pleasure went from an average of 160's/90's to 110's/60's. I am only on 1 mg. I only have been taking a 1/2 a mg since the first day."

"Works well for blood pressure, even better for Benign Prostate Hyperplasia. I seldom have to get up during the night to use bathroom, best sleep I have had in years. Only problem that I have noticed is a lack of energy during the day."

"Terazosin helped with BP but the one big side effect I had was that it literally made my entire body hurt. Both shoulders and arms hurt so bad, I could not lift either arm without pain. I have been off Terazosin for 5 days now and am getting better by the day."

"Been on terazosin for 3 months for blood pressure. My blood pressure went from 165/95 to 220/125. I also take a beta blocker, spirolactone and coversyl. Did the opposite of what it was supposed to do. Felt nauseous the entire time and almost fainted numerous times. This drug had the adverse reaction for me and was a very difficult 3 months. I'm back on amlodimine and my blood pressure has returned to normal. Anyone else with similar experience?"

"This med is causing mental distress and anxiety and lowering my zest for life. I stopped taking it and Wow! I have such an upbeat look on life again. Back to the drawing board on a search for something to lower my blood pressure. :("

"Terazosin works well for both high blood pressure and BPH. One of the better medications for reducing blood pressure, in my opinion."

"It was effective at lowering my blood pressure. However, at 1MG per day, it caused body aches and muscle spasms. I had to quit after 5 days."

"I have been taking it for about 3 months now. It has had no effect on my blood pressure at all. The dr. just increased my dose to 8mg a day. Keeping my fingers crossed."
