you may have about how to use Cardura .
Cardura may cause drowsiness or dizziness. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Cardura with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.
Dizziness or lightheadedness may occur if you stand up too fast from lying or sitting. If this occurs, get up slowly and avoid sudden posture changes. These effects will more likely occur while you are taking the first few doses or if you have increased your dose, but can occur at any time while you are taking Cardura . They can also occur if you stop taking the medicine and restart treatment.
Before drinking alcohol, discuss it with your doctor. Alcohol may worsen dizziness and lightheadedness.
Be careful during exercise, hot weather, and if you must stand for long periods of time.
Avoid situations where fainting could
cause injury. If fainting occurs, lie down and stop taking this medication until you talk with your doctor.
Cardura may rarely cause a prolonged, painful erection. This could happen even when you are not having sex. If this is not treated right away, it could lead to permanent sexual problems such as impotence. Contact your doctor right away if this happens.
Patients who take medicine for high blood pressure often feel tired or run down for a few weeks after starting treatment. Be sure to take your medicine even if you may not feel "normal." Tell your doctor if you develop any new symptoms.
Lab tests, including blood pressure, may be performed while you use Cardura . These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.
