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.

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.
