What is terazosin?
Terazosin is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure and the symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia (the benign enlargement of the prostate).
Terazosin may be prescribed alone or in conjunction with other medications as a treatment for high blood pressure (hypertension). In addition to medication, you may be prescribed certain lifestyle changes to help control blood pressure (such as exercise and dietary adjustments).
As a treatment for the symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia, it’s important to note that terazosin will not work to shrink the prostate. The prostate may continue to grow over time. While it is not a cure for this condition, terazosin can work to help minimize symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate.
