What Hytrin is and what it is used for

The name of your medicine is Hytrin 1 mg, 2 mg, 5 mg, or 10mg Tablets (called Hytrin Tablets in this leaflet). Hytrin Tablets contains the active ingredient terazosin. Terazosin belongs to a group of medicines called alpha-blockers. Hytrin Tablets are used in adults to treat high blood pressure. Hytrin Tablets are also used in adults for the treatment of a condition called benignprostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which affects the prostate and is common in older men. This condition stops the flow of urine from the bladder and can lead to symptoms such as a weak or interrupted urine flow, a need to pass water more frequently and/or a sudden need to pass water. Hytrin Tablets can relax the muscle of the prostate gland and bladder exit to help relieve these symptoms.
