I have been taking 2mg of doxazosin for the past 2 years. My urgency to urinate has decreased drastically and getting up in the middle of the night happens occasionally.

Been taking 6mg at bedtime. Sometimes it helps and I do not get up every hour to urinate other times doesn't seem to help at all. Maybe its just a curse at our ages to have BPH :(
