Alpha-blocker benefits LUTS and sexual function

September 1, 2004

San Francisco--Interim results from two multi-national European studies show that once-daily treatment with a uroselective alpha-blocker reduces lower urinary tract symptoms and may benefit sexual function. The drug, alfuzosin (Uroxatral), appears to be efficacious in men with co-morbidities such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes, and does not seem to significantly interact with medications for those conditions, according to two separate studies presented at the AUA annual meeting here.
