Should overdosage of HYTRIN (terazosin hcl) lead to hypotension, support of the cardiovascular system is of first importance. Restoration of blood pressure and normalization of heart rate may be accomplished by keeping the patient in the supine position. If this measure is inadequate, shock should first be treated with volume expanders. If necessary, vasopressors should then be used and renal function should be monitored and supported as needed. Laboratory data indicate that HYTRIN (terazosin hcl) is highly protein bound; therefore, dialysis may not be of benefit.
HYTRIN (terazosin hcl) tablets are contraindicated in patients known to be hypersensitive to terazosin hydrochloride.
