Doxazosin mesylate, a quinazoline compound sold by Pfizer under the brand name Cardura®, is an alpha blocker used to treat high blood pressure and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Additional recommended knowledge
It is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker which inhibits the binding of norepinephrine to alpha receptors in the autonomic nervous system. The primary effect of this blockage is relaxed vascular smooth muscle tone (vasodilation), which decreases peripheral vascular resistance, leading to decreased blood pressure.
