    There are a number of grammatical errors in this article. That hurts your credibility massively. More importantly, you make no mention of how they compare for handling prostate swelling issues. They are both used for that purpose a good bit more than for blood pressure, it seems. Let me know if you fix all this.

      Joseph M I am a nurse and worked in a heart failure and heart transplant clinic for 7 years. As far as prostaglandins they can effect blood pressure when NSAIDS are used. I don’t remember anything about beta blockers or alpha blockers causing prostate swelling. If a heart failure patient is volume overloaded then a beta blocker (Coreg or Toprol XL) are held since they can exacerbate volume overload. Ace inhibitors can cause tongue swelling and could effect potassium and creatinine levels and calcium channel blockers can cause lower extremity swelling. Your reply to the author is completely wrong and disrespectful! Yours truly LaToya! I wish I could remember the medication we used for large prostates.. For some reason BPH comes to mind..

      I did not notice any grammatical errors while reading this article. There may be some present but they definitely don’t stand out and there are certainly not enough errors to affect the credibility of this article. I think the article is well written and I don’t think the article is written for the purpose of covering all the conditions that these drugs are used to treat. Also, I would check your facts about what conditions these drugs are used most often for. I found the article quite helpful.

    Would you be able to inform me whether a person who takes exforge 5/160 and a beta blocker can safely also take an alpha blocker? I’ve arrhythmia and enlarged prostate problems.

    Thanking you in advance for any information.

      First you need to monitor your blood pressure closely. If you are feeling fatigue or tired your blood pressure might be low. Have you tried flame?

    Joseph M., If you’re going to criticize the author’s grammar, you should make sure your own is correct. “That hurts your credibility massively” Really?? Are you Donald Trump?

    This guy likely spent hours writing this article, doing the research and publishing it. Although, the article didn’t discuss a topic you wanted, it still provides readers with a lot of valuable information.

    “Let me know when you fix this”?? Were you abused as a child?

    Since you seem to be an authority on this subject, I suggest you get off your swollen prostate and write your own fuc*** article.

    When I was using alpha blockers my bp still high
    But when I used beta blockers pb became Norman
    I have benign protostate enlargement and felt more comfortable with my prostate

    Can someone please tell me or explain in simple non tech terms the difference between alpha & beta-What they are, what they should do, are they the same or different. Interact etc… so I understand if I’m being treated correctly
