Abstract

IN BRIEFDoxazosin appears to have a valuable role in the management of patients with hypertension and/or benign prostatic hypertrophy.In patients with hypertension, doxazosin appears to be particularly appropriate for those with other cardiovascular risk factors such as hypercholesterolaemia and diabetes mellitus.In benign prostatic hypertrophy, doxazosin may be most useful in patients with troublesome symptoms who are unable or unwilling to undergo invasive procedures, but who require rapid symptomatic relief. The drug is not suitable for those patients with urinary retention.
