You can take alpha-blockers such as terazosin
(Hytrin) or tamsulosin (Flomax) to help relax the prostate and bladder muscles.
Even though many studies established the efficacy of [[alpha].sub.1] antagonists Alfuzosin, Doxazosin, Tamsulosin and Terazosin
, there have been only few comparative studies between Silodosin and Tamsulosin.
Hypertension was managed with atenolol 100mg daily and terazosin
This study presents data suggesting that terazosin
, an [alpha]1- adrenergic receptor antagonist most commonly used in the treatment of hypertension or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is able to inhibit the growth of CRC cell line HCT116.
Alpha-1 adrenergic antagonists are used to improve the urine flow in older men by relaxing the muscles in the bladder neck and prostatic smooth muscles (terazosin
(8) conducted a cohort study of men aged >40 years with BPH and determined exposure to 5ARIs (dustasteride or finasteride) or alpha blockers, ABs (Terazosin
, Doxazosin, Alfuzosin, Tamsulosin and Silodosin).
His only antihypertensive therapy at his first visit to our Endocrinology clinic was terazosin
1 mg once daily with only partial relief of his paroxysmal symptoms.
The patient's voiding symptoms improved with terazosin
and no further workup was undertaken.
Only nondihydropyridine calcium channel blockers, terazosin
, and doxazosin were allowed for uncontrolled hypertension.
IFIS risk factors include hypertension [2-5], finasteride [3, 6-8], benzodiazepines , quetiapines [3, 5], alfuzosin [5, 9], doxazosin [3, 5], terazosin
[5, 10], silodosin , and especially tamsulosin [3-5].
Medications used to treat BPH include alpha-adrenergic blockers that relax the smooth muscles of the prostate and bladder (e.g., terazosin
[Hytrin[R]], Tamsulosin [Flomax[R]]); 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors (dutasteride [Avodart[R]], finasteride [Proscar[R]]), which inhibit prostate growth through impeding dihydro-testosterone production; a combination of doxa zosin (Cardura[R]) and finasteride also may be used (Collins, 2016; Lynn, 2017; Smart, 2016).
also has a longer half-life (12 hours) and reaches peak plasma concentration in 1 hour.
