Hytrin contains Terazosin.

Product Overview

Hytrin is a medication containing the active ingredient Terazosin, available in tablet form. It belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha-adrenergic blockers, primarily used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Terazosin works by relaxing and widening blood vessels, thereby improving blood flow and reducing blood pressure. It also relaxes the muscles of the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate in patients with BPH.


Hytrin tablets are commonly prescribed to lower blood pressure in individuals with hypertension, helping to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney problems. Additionally, Hytrin is used to relieve urinary symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia, such as difficulty urinating, weak urine stream, and frequent urination, by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck.

How to Use

Take Hytrin tablets orally, usually once daily, with or without food, as directed by your doctor. The dosage may vary depending on your medical condition and response to treatment. It is important to take it regularly to experience its full benefits. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablets; swallow them whole with a glass of water. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully and do not stop taking it without consulting your doctor, even if you feel well.

How it Works

Hytrin contains Terazosin, which works by blocking the action of certain natural substances in the body, such as adrenaline, that constrict blood vessels. By relaxing and widening blood vessels, Hytrin helps to lower blood pressure and improve blood flow. In men with benign prostatic hyperplasia, Terazosin relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, relieving urinary symptoms and making it easier to urinate.

Dosage and Administration

The recommended starting dose of Hytrin for the treatment of hypertension is typically 1 mg once daily, which may be gradually increased by your doctor based on your blood pressure response. For benign prostatic hyperplasia, the initial dose is usually 1 mg at bedtime, with subsequent dose adjustments as needed. The maximum recommended dose of it is 20 mg per day. Your doctor will determine the most appropriate dosage for you based on your individual medical history and condition.


Hytrin offers several benefits for individuals with hypertension and benign prostatic hyperplasia. It effectively lowers blood pressure, reducing the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke. For patients with BPH, it helps to alleviate bothersome urinary symptoms, improving quality of life and urinary function. It is well-tolerated and generally safe for long-term use when taken as directed by a healthcare professional.

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Hytrin may include dizziness, drowsiness, headache, weakness, blurred vision, nausea, and swelling of the hands or feet. These side effects are usually mild and transient, resolving on their own as your body adjusts to the medication. However, if any of these side effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor promptly. In rare cases, Hytrin may cause more serious side effects such as fainting, chest pain, or a rapid heartbeat. Seek medical attention if you experience any severe or persistent symptoms.


Hytrin should be used with caution in patients with liver or kidney impairment, as the dosage may need to be adjusted based on renal function. It may also cause a sudden drop in blood pressure, especially when standing up from a sitting or lying position, which can lead to dizziness or fainting. To minimize this risk, rise slowly from a lying or sitting position. Avoid alcohol and other medications that may increase dizziness while taking it. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using Hytrin.
