How does prazosin work?

A Answers (1)

  • AStacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answered
    Prazosin works by blocking alpha-adrenergic receptors in the cells that make up blood vessel walls. When these receptors are blocked, the blood vessels dilate, or become more open. When the blood vessels in your body are more dilated, the pressure within them becomes lower.
