Heitrin Indication

For the treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and also for hypertension.

Heitrin Pharmacology

Terazosin, classified as a quinazoline, is similar to doxazosin and prazosin. As an alpha-adrenergic blocking agent, terazosin is used to treat hypertension and benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Terazosin produces vasodilation and reduces peripheral resistance but in general has slight effect on cardiac output. Antihypertensive effect with chronic dosing is usually not accompanied by reflex tachycardia.

Heitrin Absorption

Essentially completely absorbed in man (90% bioavailability).
