Which of the following medications can be used to treat both hypertension and benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH)?

  1. Doxazosin
  2. Amlodipine
  3. Hydrochlorothiazide
  4. Losartan

Doxazosin is an alpha blocker. Alpha blockers inhibit vasoconstriction – i.e. they reduce blood pressure by keeping blood vessels open. Alpha blockers also relax the smooth muscle of the urinary system, which results in the improved urine flow of men with BPH.
