Hypertension (Definition)

Obamacare: If you don't have the means to purchase insurance then, you do have the ability to sign up for Obamacare. Why not check into it which people have been talking about for months/years now. Not sure why you wouldn't've tried signing up? Also, you may solicit assistance from your state if you do not have the means to purchase coverage. More questions?

I was given cardura (doxazosin) 4mg to pass a stone. I don't have high blood pressure. Is it ok to start off at the 4 mg dose or should I start with the 1 mg?

I was given cardura (doxazosin) 4mg to pass a stone. I don't have high blood pressure. Is it ok to start off at the 4 mg dose or should I start with the 1 mg?

Be careful!: That dose sounds awfully high as a starting dose! you're right - we usually start with the 1mg dose and build up, because the last thing you want is to get up in the middle of the night and fall to the ground because your blood pressure has plummeted from too high of a starting dose. Ask your doctor about Flomax (tamsulosin) as an aid to passing your kidney stone. Be sure to strain your urine to get the stone! ...Read more
