[QUOTE=Tick Tock]The Cardura has been fine. Mine is still not low enough.
The cardura has a side benefit for men. It also helps for BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) - enlarged prostate... Basically, it helps prevent you from having to get up to go to the bathroom at night.
Embarassing... but, you asked ;)
I was up to 8mg about a year ago and I actually had spells when my BP was too low.
For me, it's probably been the best over BP med. Norvasc also seems to help.
Sorry I embarassed you. Doesn't bother me, my husband is currently taking an alpha blocker for that reason too. He had surgery last March to remove 80% of his prostate.
Do you have to take the Cardura more than once a day? I also read it causes palpations. I hate any med that causes my heart to pound. That causes me super anxiety.
You say your pressure still isn't low enough? How high is it?
Thanks for the reply,
