Is there any reason to give minipress (prazosin) to someone other than for high blood pressure problems?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Absolutely-few thing

Beside treating hypertension, Minipress (prazosin) is also used to treat benign prostate hypertrophy, raynaud phenomenon (off-label), postraumatic-stress related nightmare/sleep disruptions etc.
.It works pretty quickly. This med has been around for quite sometime now--it is relatively cheap and can be quite effective for some. Any problem, consult doc. Good luck.
