Do not stop taking terazosin suddenly, even if you feel better. Stopping suddenly could cause your blood pressure to increase. (back to top) What is terazosin? Terazosin is in a class of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. Terazosin causes the blood vessels (veins and arteries) to relax and expand, which allows blood to pass more easily through them. Terazosin is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Terazosin is also used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). It relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.

Before taking terazosin, tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver disease. You may need a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during therapy with terazosin. Terazosin is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether terazosin will be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not take terazosin without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether terazosin passes into breast milk. Do not take terazosin without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Take terazosin exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you. Take each dose with a full glass of water.

What happens if I miss a dose? Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose you missed and take only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose of this medication. A double dose could cause your blood pressure to become severely low. If you miss doses for several days in a row, call your doctor before taking any additional doses. Treatment may need to be restarted with a lower dose.

Seek emergency medical attention. Symptoms of a terazosin overdose include weakness, dizziness, and fainting; a weak, fast pulse; cold, clammy skin; and possible loss of consciousness or coma. What should I avoid while taking terazosin? Avoid alcohol while taking terazosin. Alcohol may cause drowsiness or severely low blood pressure while taking terazosin. Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities until you know how the medication affects you. Terazosin may cause dizziness or drowsiness. If you experience dizziness or drowsiness, avoid these activities.
