Detailed View: Safety Labeling Changes Approved By FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) – April 2010


Postural Hypotension
  • Care should be taken when Uroxatral is administered to patients with symptomatic hypotension or patients who have had a hypotensive response to other medications.


PDE5 Inhibitors
  • Caution is advised when alpha adrenergic blocking agents, including Uroxatral, are coadministered with PDE5 inhibitors. Alpha-adrenergic blockers and PDE5 inhibitors are both vasodilators that can lower blood pressure. Concomitant use of these two drug classes can potentially cause symptomatic hypotension.
