Answer

BPH, Alpha Blocker

Doxazosin mesylate (Cardura, Cardura XL)

Doxazosin mesylate is a quinazoline compound that is a selective alpha1-adrenergic antagonist. It inhibits postsynaptic alpha-adrenergic receptors, resulting in the vasodilation of veins and arterioles and a decrease in total peripheral resistance and blood pressure.
