Prazosin Tablet 1mg
Tablet: Per tablet
Prazosin can be particularly helpful in the treatment of hypertension in cases that have not responded adequately to other medications. It is also useful for the treatment of hypertension associated with pheochromocytoma.
Prazosin increases cardiac output while decreasing systemic and pulmonary vascular resistance.
Prazosin can be used to relax smooth muscle associated with the internal urethral sphincter in animals with urethral spasm secondary to functional urethral obstruction. In many instances when prazosin is used to treat urethral spasm a skeletal muscle relaxant, such as diazepam, is also indicated.
Prazosin may cause an initial precipitous drop in blood pressure. It should be used with additional caution in dogs that are already experiencing hypotension or are in chronic renal failure. It is not known if Prazosin crosses the placenta; minimal quantities are found in maternal milk.
