Cardura is used for the control of elevated blood pressure (hypertension) and for benign prostatic hyperplasia (noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland).

How Taken

Cardura should be taken at doses, specifically directed by your physician. This medication can be taken with or without food. Cardura should be taken at the same time each day to maintain proper blood levels. Do not take Cardura within two hours of taking an antacid. If stopped, you must taper the dose.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Cardura is an inhibitor of alpha 1 adrenergic nervous system. It is in a class of drugs, referred to as alpha blockers that includes alfusosin (Uroxatral), terazosin (Hytrin), tamsulosin (Flomax), and prazosin (Minipress). Elevated blood pressure (hypertension) is lowered as the action of these nerves, which promote constriction of blood vessels, is blocked.
