How to Take the Medication -

Terazosin comes in the form of a capsule which is usually taken once or twice daily. Stick to the recommended dose and the instructions given by your doctor. Your first dose of terazosin may make you faint or feel dizzy, and should therefore be taken at bedtime. Do not skip a dose. If you miss it, take it as soon as you remember. Do not double the dose to make up the missed dose. It may take 4-6 weeks to produce a good response. Even if you feel well, do not stop the medicine without consulting your doctor.
