Fincar 5 mg tablet containing Finasteride (active ingredient) is mainly used to treat BPH (Benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlarged prostate). It minimizes the prostate size and reduces the risk of urinary retention. Finasteride treats symptoms of an enlarged prostate by decreasing the amount of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in your body. Normally, DHT is responsible for causing your prostate to grow larger. Finasteride causes a significant reduction in DHT, which prevents your prostate from growing larger.
You should not use Fincar 5 mg, if you are a woman or if you are allergic to Finasteride. The medicine is not intended for use by women and could cause potential adverse effects in those who are allergic to Finasteride. The prostate drug is not prescribed for use in children.
There are certain medicines which may interact with Finasteride or Fincar 5 mg and increase or decrease the working of the medicine. Tell your doctor about the medicines that you are taking currently so that he can check for possible drug interaction. Also tell him about the medicines that you are allergic to. Drugs such as singulair, St. john’s wort, ketoconazole, itraconazole, nefazodone, isoniazid, rifabutin, nevirapine, crestor, rifampin, trazodoen, fish oil, cymbalta, and nexium may interact with Finasteride and affect the working of the medicine.
