Cardura should be taken at doses, specifically directed by your physician. This medication can be taken with or without food.

Drug Class and Mechanism
Cardura is an inhibitor of alpha 1 adrenergic nervous system. It is in a class of drugs, referred to as alpha blockers that includes alfusosin (Uroxatral), terazosin (Hytrin), tamsulosin (Flomax), and prazosin (Minipress). Elevated blood pressure (hypertension) is lowered as the action of these nerves, which promote constriction of blood vessels, is blocked.
