Were you looking for information about Uroxatral? Uroxitral is a common misspelling of Uroxatral.
If you have an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH), your healthcare provider may prescribe Uroxatral® (alfuzosin hydrochloride). This prescription medication works to relieve the symptoms of an enlarged prostate by relaxing the muscles surrounding the prostate and bladder. Although most people tolerate the medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Some of the common side effects seen with this drug include dizziness, fatigue, and headaches. Prior to taking Uroxatral, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
