Comment:
I take 6 mg./day. Works very well for treating BPH. However, when I asked my doctor if my episodes of swelling of my face and tongue could be drug-related, he told me dozazosin is one of the safest drugs on the market. He sent me to an allergist who reported I had no allergies, but he did not investigate a drug reaction. I have since done more research on my own and discovered that I've been ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking 4mg of Doxazosin Oral for over a year and a half. As far as keeping me from getting up every hour or so at night to urinate doesn't seem to make a difference.

Comment:
Taking 1 mg for 6 months. Little effect on BP, increase in urine flow, decrease in night frequency. [I had TURP surgery 15 years ago.] When I first started taking it I had some dizziness and some increase pull rate, but no unpleasant effects now. I take it because another medication I take for pain causes enlargement of prostate that restricts urine flow. I may increase dose to 2 mg.
