Hytrin is prescribed to treat high blood pressure or urinary symptoms in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). It belongs to a class of drugs called alpha blockers, and works by relaxing veins and arteries as well as muscles in the prostate and bladder.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Hytrin exactly as prescribed.
Take with or without food.
Swallow whole. Do not crush or chew.
Some men experience dizziness or fainting when they first start taking Hytrin. Take care when driving, standing for long periods, or during exercise. Getting up quickly from a standing or lying position may worse dizziness.
Hytrin may affect pupils during cataract surgery. Inform your eye doctor that you’re using Hytrin, but don’t stop using it unless directed by a doctor.

Liver or kidney disease
Low blood pressure
Common side effects of Hytrin include:
Contact your doctor if you experience these more serious side effects:

What should I do if Hytrin is causing me to feel dizzy?
Dizziness is most common when you first start taking Hytrin, and should improve over time. Take care to get up slowly from a lying or sitting position, especially first thing in the morning. Until you’ve adjusted to Hytrin, avoid strenuous exercise, driving, and operating heavy machinery.
How quickly does Hytrin start to work?
Your doctor will start you on a low dose of Hytrin and increase it as necessary. It may take 4 to 6 weeks to notice the full effects of Hytrin.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
