Product Description

Cardura is a trade name for doxazosin mesylate, an alpha-adrenergic blocker commonly used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. Cardura is available by physician prescription.

 

Drug Information

 

Doxazosin mesylate is a quinazoline compound than can selectively inhibit alpha1 subtype of alpha-adrenergic receptors, which results in the relaxation of smooth muscles in blood vessels, allowing blood to pass through freely, thus relieving high pressure.

 

The chemical formula for doxazosin mesylate is 1-(4-amino-6,7-dimethoxy-2-quinazolinyl)-4- (1,4-benzodioxan-2-ylcarbonyl) piperazine methanesulfonate.

 

Doxazosin mesylate can also relax the muscles in the neck of the bladder, making it easier to urinate, and the muscles of the prostate in men. Therefore, doxazosin mesylate is sometimes prescribed for adult males who have difficulty urinating due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

 

Cardura is available in tablets colored according to dosage of the active ingredient: white for 1 mg, yellow for 2 mg, orange for 4 mg and green for 8 mg.

 

Inactive ingredients in Cardura include lactose, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium starch glycolate.
