    What Is The Most Important Information I Should Know About Alfuzosin Hydrochloride? 

    Alfuzosin hydrochloride can cause serious side effects, including a sudden drop in blood pressure, especially when you start treatment. This may cause you to faint, or to feel dizzy or lightheaded.

    Your Risk Of Having This Problem May Be Increased If You Take Alfuzosin Hydrochloride With Certain Other Medicine That Lowers Blood Pressure: 

    medicines for high blood pressure

    a nitrate medicine for angina

    Ask your doctor if you are not sure if you are taking one of these medicines.

    • Do not drive, operate machinery, or do any dangerous activities until you know how alfuzosin hydrochloride affects you. This is especially important if you already have a problem with low blood pressure or take medicines to treat high blood pressure.
    • If you begin to feel dizzy or lightheaded, lie down with your legs and feet up.

    If your symptoms do not improve call your doctor.

    Alfuzosin hydrochloride is a prescription medicine that is called an "alpha-blocker". Alfuzosin hydrochloride is used in adult men to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Alfuzosin hydrochloride may help to relax the muscles in the prostate and the bladder which may lessen the symptoms of BPH and improve urine flow.

    Before prescribing alfuzosin hydrochloride, your doctor may examine your prostate gland and do a blood test called a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test to check for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer and BPH can cause the same symptoms. Prostate cancer needs a different treatment.

    Alfuzosin hydrochloride is not for use in women or children.

    Some medicines called "alpha-blockers" are used to treat high blood pressure.

    Alfuzosin hydrochloride is not for the treatment of high blood pressure.
