Alfuzosin is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), found in men with an enlarged prostate. It acts as an alpha blocker by blocking the receptors in the urinary tract and causing the smooth muscles in the region to relax. This helps to promote better urine flow and a rection in the symptoms of BPH.
If you are taking a macrolide antibiotic such as erythromycin, alpha blocker like prazosin, or an anti fungal like ketoconazole, do not use Alfuzosin. If you take medicine for high blood pressure, or a history of heart problems, alert your doctor.
