Has helped with enlarged prostate, but not sure what is causing rash, burning muscles & skin from neck down to back and around chest and stomach. Very Very painful,with small bumps. Wondering if anyone else may have these symptoms. Have been taking this med for around 3 years or so, any feedback from others out there?

It doesn't seem to be working and I'm not sure how much damage it may be causing my internal organs. I really think most prescriptions are written so the doctor can get their 'kick backs', i.e., money from the drug companies...if it actually works for the patient...great!

I have been taking 2mg two times a day about 3 years I can't say it has done much for my prostate problems but my blood pressure numbers are great.

Comment:
I have been taking 4mg Doxazosin for maybe 10 years for a very enlarged prostate and it is effective in increasing my urine flow. I could not live without it. I take it at about 9 PM every night. If I take 6 mg it improves my night-time flow even more but it seems to lower my blood-pressure too much causing a weak feeling.
