Doxazosin belongs to a group of medicines known as alpha-blockers, which are used in the treatment of high blood pressure. It lowers blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. Although people with high blood pressure often do not feel ill, it left untreated, high blood pressure can harm the heart and damage blood vessels, leading to a stroke or a heart attack.

For more information on the prescription medication patients should refer to the Doxazosin patient information leaflet.

As an alpha-blocker, Doxazosin lowers blood pressure by keeping the hormone norepinephrine from tightening the muscles in the walls of smaller arteries and veins. As a result, the vessels remain open and relaxed. This improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure.

Doxazosin Tablets

Providing you have had approval from a healthcare professional, take your doxazosin tablets with a full glass of water. Swallow them whole, without chewing them. You can take the tablets with or without food, in the morning or evening but it's best to take them at the same time each day for better results.

Doxazosin Uses

Blood pressure-lowering medication can prevent serious conditions.

Strokes: 77 percent of people who have their first stroke have high blood pressure. A stroke is when an area of your brain is not receiving enough blood and oxygen, to operate properly. 

Heart disease: If you have high blood pressure, you are actually 3 times more likely to die from heart disease. Hypertension is caused by hardened arteries and hardened arteries cause hypertension. This becomes a viscous cycle which is incredibly hard to break if the blood pressure isn't lowered.

Kidneys: If your blood pressure is high, it can stretch the very important filtering system of the kidneys. Over time, this can become permanent which can cause the kidneys to become less and less effective in filtering your blood. Sadly if this happens, the options available are dialysis or a kidney transplants.
