Q: While taking Afluzosin, what precautions should I follow?
A: This medicine is known to cause dizziness in few patients. You are advised that dizziness, light headedness, or drowsiness may occur after the first dose of this medicine and therefore you should avoid driving or performing hazardous tasks for the early 24 hours after starting this medicine or when you increase the dosage. Fainting may also occur. When rising from a lying or sitting position, one can observe this side effect. Get up deliberately, and this may help lessen the problem. These effects may also occur during alcohol consumption, exercise, or hot weather. Seek medical attention immediately if there is a sudden drop in blood pressure.
