How does alfuzosin work?
Alfuzosin works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate gland and the bladder neck, making it easier to urinate. It belongs to a class of medications called alpha-1 blockers. 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.
Forms of alfuzosin available
Alfuzosin comes as an extended-release (long-acting) tablet to take by mouth.
Dosage of alfuzosin
The dosage of alfuzosin may vary depending on the individual’s condition and response to the medication. It is important to follow the recommended dosage instructions provided by the healthcare provider. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Directions for alfuzosin use
Alfuzosin should be taken exactly as directed by the healthcare provider. The medication is usually taken orally, once daily after a meal. Do not take alfuzosin on an empty stomach. Swallow the extended-release tablet whole. Do not break, crush, or chew it. Your first dose of alfuzosin may make you feel dizzy or faint, or make you start sweating. It is important to take alfuzosin consistently and continue the prescribed treatment course. Store the medicine in a closed container at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, direct light and reach of children.
Warnings and precautions for alfuzosin
- Alfuzosin may cause certain side effects, such as dizziness, lightheadedness, drowsiness, and low blood pressure (postural hypotension). It is important to avoid activities that require mental alertness until the individual knows how alfuzosin affects them
- It may interact with certain medications, including other alpha-blockers such as prazosin, terazosin, certain antibiotics, antifungal medications such as ketoconazole, ritonavir and itraconazole, medications for high blood pressure (hypertension), and medications for erectile dysfunction such as sildenafil and tadalafil. Inform a healthcare professional about all medications including supplements being taken to prevent drug interactions
- Your doctor may test your prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to check for prostate cancer before you take alfuzosin
- Alfuzosin belongs to a class of drugs called alpha-blockers, which also includes medications like tamsulosin and doxazosin. Taking multiple alpha-blockers together can increase the risk of low blood pressure, dizziness, and fainting. It is important to avoid using multiple alpha blockers simultaneously unless specifically instructed by a healthcare professional
- Alfuzosin has the potential to lower blood pressure, so it should be used with caution or under medical supervision if you are already taking other medications to treat high blood pressure. Combining alfuzosin with antihypertensive drugs can further reduce blood pressure, leading to dizziness and fainting
- Alfuzosin is primarily metabolized by an enzyme called CYP3A4 in the liver. Drugs that inhibit CYP3A4 can interfere with the metabolism of alfuzosin, leading to increased drug levels in the body. This can increase the risk of side effects. Examples of CYP3A4 inhibitors include ketoconazole, itraconazole, ritonavir, and clarithromycin. If you are taking any of these medications, your healthcare provider may need to adjust your alfuzosin dosage
- Alfuzosin and phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors, such as sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra), and tadalafil (Cialis), can both lower blood pressure. Combining these drugs can increase the risk of low blood pressure, dizziness, and fainting
There may be other drugs that can interact with alfuzosin, so it is crucial to provide a complete list of all medications, supplements, and herbal products you are taking to your healthcare provider to minimize adverse effects. This includes prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements. It is important to note that this is not an exhaustive list of all possible drug interactions with alfuzosin. Always consult your healthcare provider or pharmacist for personalized advice based on your specific medical condition and medication regimen.
