Hytrin

Hytrin (terazosin) is an alpha blocker that relaxes the muscles in the blood vessels, resulting in lowered blood pressure. Hytrin is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Hytrin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Important Information

You should not use Hytrin if you are allergic to terazosin, or if you have ever had an allergic reaction to another alpha blocker.

To make sure Hytrin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • liver or kidney disease;
  • a heart rhythm disorder;
  • low blood pressure;
  • a blood disorder such as hemophilia; or
  • if you are unable to urinate.

You may feel very dizzy when you first wake up. Be careful when standing or sitting up from a lying position. Avoid driving or hazardous activity until you know how Hytrin will affect you.

Your blood pressure will need to be checked often. If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using Hytrin.

You should not stop using Hytrin suddenly. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.
