Medication Prescribed to Treat the Symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Alfuzosin is a prescription drug available as an oral extended-release tablet.  It belongs to the class of drug known as alpha blockers. It is prescribed to treat the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or an enlarged prostate. Symptoms of BPH include:

  • Difficultyurinating with a weak stream, dribbling and an incomplete bladder
  • Painfulurination
  • Urinaryurgency and frequency including in the middle of the night

Alfuzosin is an alpha-1 receptor antagonist. It works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and the opening of the bladder. This helps improve the flow of urine as it decreases the Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms. However, this medication does not slow down or stop the progression of the BPH.
