Contain the active ingredient : Doxazosin mesylate which is a type of medicine called an alpha-blocker. It works by blocking alpha receptors in certain areas of the body.
Alpha receptors are found on the muscle in the walls of blood vessels. When Doxazosin blocks these receptors it causes the muscle in the blood vessels to relax and the blood vessels to widen. This lowers blood pressure.
Alpha receptors are also found on the muscle in the prostate gland. This gland is found only in men and lies at the top of the tube connecting the bladder to the outside (urethra). The prostate gland often enlarges with advancing age (this is called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), pressing on the urethra and obstructing the flow of urine from the bladder. This can cause various urinary symptoms, such as difficulty passing urine, being unable to completely empty the bladder and needing to pass urine more often or urgently.
What is it used for?
