Introduction of Minipress XL Tablet (Prazosin)

Minipress XL contains an antihypertensive drug, which is mainly used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in the future. In addition, it is also used to treat mild enlargement of the prostate in men (known as benign prostatic hyperplasia) and heart failure. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the blood pressure on the arterial walls increases. The greater the blood pressure, the harder the heart has to impel. Minipress XL contains prazosin, an alpha blocker primarily used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It works by relaxing blood vessels, reducing the heart's workload and making the heart more efficient at pumping blood around the body. Thus, it helps lower high blood pressure, thus reducing possible future heart attacks or strokes. Take Minipress XL as directed by your doctor. It is recommended to use Minipress XL for as long as prescribed by your doctor, depending on your health condition. The most common side effects of Minipress XL are drowsiness, headache, weakness, dizziness, priapism (long-lasting erection), nausea and exhaustion. They do not require medical attention and will gradually disappear over time. If side effects persist, contact your doctor. It is suggested to drink sufficiently of fluids while taking this medicine. Lifestyle changes help achieve optimal results with Minipress XL and keep blood pressure under control. The cornerstones of hypertension treatment are a low-salt diet, daily physical activity (even 20-30 minutes of brisk walking 5 days a week can help, weight loss in obese people), etc. Tell your doctor if you have had an allergic reaction to Minipress XL, are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, are breastfeeding, have liver disease, kidney disease, heart failure, heart valve problems, or if you have had a heart attack.

So it is better to inform your doctor if you are using Minipress XL and breastfeeding. Like all alpha blockers (pills that lower blood pressure), Minipress XL can also cause a sudden loss of consciousness due to a sudden drop in blood pressure with a heart rate of 120-160 beats per minute. Low blood pressure (hypotension) may occur in patients using Minipress XL who are also taking beta-blockers (pills to lower blood pressure) such as propranolol. Postural hypotension can cause dizziness, vertigo, or fainting, especially when standing from a lying or sitting position. Slow growth can help reduce the problem. During cataract surgery, an eye problem known as intraoperative soft iris syndrome (IFIS) has been associated with alpha-1 blocker therapy (blood pressure lowering pills). If you are scheduled for eye surgery, tell your doctor that you are using Minipress XL surgery.

FAQ’s:- 

How does Minipress XL work?

Minipress XL contains prazosin, an alpha blocker that relaxes and dilates narrow blood vessels. This reduces the heart's workload and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood around the body. Thus, it lowers high blood pressure and reduces the probability of a future heart attack or stroke.

Can I stop using Minipress XL when my blood pressure is under control?

No, it is recommended to inform your doctor and check your blood pressure for at least two weeks before stopping the medication. Depending on your current blood pressure levels, your doctor may reduce the dose of your medication or recommend stopping it.

What if I forget to take a dose of Minipress XL?

If you forget to take a dose of Minipress XL, you will be prompted to take it as soon as you remember. However, do not forget to dose first. When it is time for the next dose, do not take both doses at the same time. Take only one dose, a double dose of Minipress XL will cause low blood pressure.
