Prazopress 2 mg is used for the treatment of hypertension. It contains the active ingredient Prazosin.
It can be used alone or with other hypertensive agents such as diuretics or beta-adrenergic blocking agents. It is also effective at treating prostate problems such as benign prostatic hyperplasia. Your doctor may also prescribe Prazopress to treat Raynaud’s disease, where the fingers become white and very painful when cold. Certain types of heart failure can also be treated with Prazosin. The antihypertensive agent causes the relaxation of muscles in the walls of blood vessels and makes it easier for blood to flow. They also relax the muscles in the prostate gland and improve the flow of urine. When recommended for treating high blood pressure or heart failure, Prazopress is often given in combination with other medicines.
Prazopress 2 mg should not be given to patients with known sensitivity to Prazosin, quinazolines, or any other medicine ingredients. Before taking the medicine, inform your doctor if you have or have had any medical conditions, especially heart problems, kidney disease, or liver problems. Be cautious while driving or operating machinery until you know how Prazopress 2 mg works. Prazosin may cause light-headedness, dizziness, or fainting in some people, especially after taking the first dose. Limit alcohol consumption while taking prazosin tablets, as this combination may make you more dizzy or lightheaded. Get immediate medical attention if you experience a painful erection or if your erection continues for longer than four hours.
The most common side effects associated with Prazopress therapy are nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, palpitation, weakness, and fatigue. Most side effects resolve when you get used to the medicine. It may also cause your blood pressure to go too low when taking the medicine. You should be especially careful when you are 65 or older while using Prazosin. In most cases, side effects are resolved with continued treatment or tolerated with no drug dose decrease.
Prazopress 2 mg may be prescribed alone or in combination with other medicines. It can be taken before or after consuming food. The dose of Prazosin usually depends on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. Take it regularly to get the most benefits from the medicine. Swallow the pill with a glass full of water. Take your very first dose last thing at night, just before going to bed, because you may feel dizzy and could fall.
Prazosin is used to control blood pressure but does not cure it. Therefore, you must take your medicine daily. If you take Prazopress for high blood pressure, heart failure, or Raynaud’s disease, you may need to take it for a long time. If you take Prazopress for prostate problems, you will only have to consume it until your operation. Continue to take Prazosin for as long as your doctor tells you.
