Drug information for Terazosin

Drug Information: Trazosin belongs to a group of drugs called alpha blockers. These drugs act on a specific group of neurons and inhibit them. This inhibitory state is used in some diseases. It is used to control the symptoms of prostate hyperplasia (enlargement of the prostate gland) and to lower blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure.

The prostate gland naturally enlarges in the elderly. Prostate enlargement is also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This condition can cause difficulty urinating, including delayed urination, dripping urine, and a feeling of not being able to empty the bladder completely. Trazosin helps to pass urine more easily by relaxing the muscles around the bladder and prostate gland.

In high blood pressure, trazosin dilates the walls of blood vessels. This mechanism reduces blood pressure and improves blood circulation.
