What is the recommended dosage of Minipress XL (Prazosin)?
For patients with hypertension, it is recommended to start the treatment with the smallest dose of Minipress XL (Prazosin) possible: 1 mg, 2 or 3 times a day. This could prevent certain side effects, such as dizziness and fainting. Your doctor may then slowly increase the amount to a maximum of 20 mg a day, divided into smaller doses. The usual amount of Minipress XL (Prazosin), however, lies between 6 and 15 mg daily, usually divided into 2 doses a day.
In rare cases, patients may benefit from a further increase up to 40 mg daily, divided into smaller doses.
