Comment from: Gaudium, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: September 06

Doctors tried many drugs to lower by BP without success. I was placed on a 2 mg dose of Cardura. After my first dose of Cardura my pressure dropped from 190/94 to 116/60. I was weak and tired for about a week then life returned to normal. The Daily 2 mg dose of Cardura maintained my BP for almost two years, pressure increased to 180/88 and again doctors attempted to lower it with many other drugs without success. My Cardura was increased to 4 mg each day and my pressure lowered to 136/76. I have some of the side effects listed by others including edema of the lower legs but would rather have the side effects than be deceased. Just a note to the record I am also taking a combination of drugs for the control of my blood pressure this combination fails the minute Cardura is withdrawn.

Watch out during your first dose, my pressure dropped from 188/110 to 90/60 in 20 minutes. This was not a problem in later doses.

I have been on 4 other HBP medications prior to the Cardura. Not working to lower, so doc added Cardura. This is probably the worst med I've been put on----- Side effects are horrendous, ie. Extreme dizziness, nausea, insomnia, and extreme lethargy and overall bad feeling. And no lowering of HBP.

Medication appears to do nothing even in combination with other BP meds.

I have been on 4mg of Cardura for over 10 years. I stopped and my BP elevated but returned to normal after startin again. I was told that this medication in addition to controlling my BP was to help in limiting the number of times I need to urinate in the evening.

I have been taking this med for several weeks and I now have a burning sensation in my mouth and throughout my body. Can this be from the Cardura?

My BP was going up on Cozaar and HCTZ after three years so this was added at 1mg. So far my BP is in check and I am urinating better too. No side effects noticed so far after one month.

cardura is a dangerous drug for me. dr. wants to lower edema in ankles and lower blood pressure. in fact it has lowered edema, but created new pain in groin and testes; last night my blood pressure went to 199, with 4 mg dose in am and 4mg dose in pm.
