>Does doxazosin cross the BBB as readily as prazosin?
I did find a bit of information. It said that doxazosin is less lipid-soluble than prazosin and may not cross the BBB very well. So, I guess doxazosin might not be as effective.
One thing about prazosin is the short half-life, apparently only 2-3 hours. What do you think of the idea of taking smaller doses more frequently?
