Terazosin seems to be causing a severe itch. What else can i take for BPH symptoms?

Terazosin itch

Itching
Are you taking any other meds (including supplements) that might be causing an interaction? How severe are your BPH symptoms? If terazosin is your only med, contact your doc for alternatives. There are other alpha-blockers which may/may not have similar side effects. There are meds like finasteride that slowly shrink the prostate, but can interact with other meds. Saw palmetto may work for some.
