What is alfuzosin?

Alfuzosin is a prescription medication. It’s available as an oral extended-release tablet.

Alfuzosin is available as the brand-name drug Uroxatral. It’s also available in a generic version. Generic drugs usually cost less than brand-name drugs. In some cases, they may not be available in every strength or form as the brand-name version.

Why is this medication prescribed?

Alfuzosin is used in men to treat symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), which include difficulty urinating (hesitation, dribbling, weak stream, and incomplete bladder emptying), painful urination, and urinary frequency and urgency. Alfuzosin is in a class of medications called alpha blockers. It works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and bladder to allow urine to flow more easily.

How should this medicine be used?

Alfuzosin comes as an extended-release (long-acting) tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken once a day, immediately after a meal. Do not take alfuzosin on an empty stomach. To help you remember to take alfuzosin, take it after the same meal every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take alfuzosin exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Swallow the tablets whole; do not split, chew, or crush them.

Alfuzosin controls BPH but does not cure it. Continue to take alfuzosin even if you feel well. Do not stop taking alfuzosin without talking to your doctor.

How it works

Alfuzosin belongs to a class of drugs called alpha-blockers. It works by helping to relax muscles in your prostate and bladder. This can reduce your BPH symptoms and improve your ability to urinate.

Alpha-blockers work on alpha receptors in your body. There are alpha receptors in many parts of your body, but this specific medication only acts on the receptors in your prostate and bladder.

Important warnings

Blood pressure warning: Alfuzosin may cause a sudden drop in your blood pressure when you change positions (such as standing up from sitting or lying down). It may also cause fainting. Avoid driving, using heavy machinery, or doing hazardous tasks until you know how it affects you. If you start feeling dizzy or lightheaded, lie down with your legs and feet up. Call your doctor if these effects don’t improve.
Chest pain warning: Alfuzosin can cause serious side effects to your heart. If you experience new or worsening symptoms of sharp or squeezing chest pain (angina), stop taking alfuzosin and talk to your doctor or get immediate medical attention. Get medical attention if you have pain that moves to your arms, neck, or back, or if you have other symptoms, such as trouble breathing, sweating, dizziness, or nausea.

Alfuzosin Dosage

Follow all directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Alfuzosin is usually taken once daily just after a meal. Do not take alfuzosin on an empty stomach. Take the medicine at the same time each day.

Do not crush, chew, or break an extended-release tablet. Swallow it whole.

Alfuzosin lowers blood pressure and may cause dizziness or fainting, especially when you first start taking it. You may feel very dizzy when you first wake up. Avoid getting up too fast from a sitting or lying position, or you may feel dizzy. Get up slowly and steady yourself to prevent a fall.
