I have been taking 10mg of terazosin daily for 19 years for BPH. I am symptom free. I get a yearly digital examination and PSA. The only side effect that I have experienced is nasal congestion. A stuffy nose is a small price to pay for complete symptomatic relief. And then there's the added bonus of low normal blood pressure.

Well the drug worked it cut down my trips to the bathroom. But the side effects almost killed me. I had terrible chest discomfort, throat was tightened hard to breath and swallow,,I was tired all the time would fall pass out at the computer. It was no fun. I am now waiting for the doctor to give me something else to take. It is still not out of my system and I have some side effects, I was scared of this drug. It was great having the relief but not the side effects.

Taking this has relieved my constant urination. Once back on it (after stopping it) urination became normal. I stopped it when I started Avodart. Dr. failed to tell me to continue on the Hytrin.) So I was running to the bathroom (literally) all day and nite. Gee.....wonder why the doctor forgot to tell me to stay on the Hytrin with the Avodart?

Comment from: splatrat, 35-44 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: June 21

I have been on the medication for about three days now and it has certainly caused my bp to drop - dramatically so. On average my bp is about 140/100; since adding Hytrin to the regimen, my bp has swung the other way and now averages about 112/70.

I have been on hytrin for about 15-20 years. I have been taking it so long I forget. It is the only drug that I have found that is good for my high blood pressure. Recently, I tried a new drug and I had a lot of side effects - so I wnet back on hytrin and I am happy.
