Sildenafil, tadalafil and vardenafil (the currently available PDE5 inhibitors in the UK) may all interact with non selective alpha blockers, e.g. doxazosin leading to orthostatic hypotension
No interactions have been recorded with the selective alpha blocker tamsulosin.
The respective summary of product characteristics must be consulted before prescribing any of the drugs mentioned
