    I have an enlarged prostate, and I am tired of peeing 4-5 times a night. I was prescribed 1mg per day of doxazosin (weakest dose). I have taken it in the evening the last 3 days. Night 1: slept through the night. Night 2: slept through the night. Night 3: got up twice to pee. There is no doubt this stuff works. However, my main concern is the side-effects that makes me feel a bit tired and somewha ... Show Full Comment

    I took the drug at 2 mg for 4 days, 4 mg for 4 days and then worked my way up to the full 8 mg dosage, which I took only two days. After taking this drug only 10 days, I was 100% impotent, even with taking Cialis at a double-dose. I don't know how much longer this is going to stay in my system, but I'm dropping it.

    Comment:
    Urologist initially prescribed 4 mg daily to be taken at bedtime for BPH. Could not tolerate it because it caused swelling in my nose with difficulty breathing in middle of night. Switched to 2 mg morning and evening and side affects acceptable. Satisfactory improvement in BPH, but much more impressed with blood pressure results. Dropped my blood pressure from about 135/80 to 115/70. Was neve ... Show Full Comment

    After taking this drug for 4 or 5 days I started to fill bloated all the time. After 3 or 4 more days I started to have stomach pains. I quit taking the drug after about 10 days. My doctor ordered all kind of tests after saying this drug should not cause this problem. All test were negative. After 2 more weeks my bloating and pain went away. I waited about 4 weeks and started back on doxazosin. In ... Show Full Comment
