White Pill With 094

oval tablet. Just found in an old purse and wondering why I have it there? ## Does this oval tab have the marking APO on the opposite side of the pill? If so, I identified the pill to be Doxazosin mesylate (2 mg). NOTE: the full marking would be 094 on one side and APO on the other. Doxazosin Mesylate is an alpha blocker used to treat high blood pressure and benign prostatic hyperplasia. For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## I also found a white oval caplet with 094 and no markings on the other side. What is it if there is no APO? ## Probably Kirkland brand Robaxacet - acetominophen and methocarbamol

Doxazosin 2mg Headaches

Taking for high BP. First night VERY bad headache at 5am. Next 3 nights took half doze, now waking up with medium pain lingering headache in morning. Been taking for 5 days but headaches are showing no signs of improvement. Has anyone had a similar trend in experience and can I expect it to get better?? Am also very thirsty! ## Hello, Mart! How are you? Headaches can be a side effect of this medication, along with the thirst. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and increased urination. The side effects should taper off after about 4 to 5 weeks, as your body gets used to the medication. If they don't, or if they get worse, you should consult your doctor as this may not be the right medication for you. Is there anything else I can help with?
