    Intermittent Alpha-Blocker Therapy in the Treatment of Men with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms


    Urology 52: 12-16, 1998

      

    Conclusions – Among men with LUTS who respond to a-blocker therapy alternate day dosing appears just as effective as continued daily dosing.

      


    When a-blocker therapy is discontinued, symptoms and impaired urinary flow return. 

      


    The authors call for further studies of intermittent a-blocker therapy in more patient samples, using other types of a-blockers and other intermittent regimens.
