Proscar containing Finasteride has been clinically tested and has proven to be one of the best solutions for the enlarged prostate in men. The condition of an enlarged prostate gland is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The medication is specially made to relieve the symptoms of BPH and to lower the risk of a sudden inability to pass urine at all. The inability to pass urine is called acute urinary retention, which may require surgery. As men age, their chances of developing an enlarged prostate increase. Proscar 5 mg is a prescription medication used to treat enlarged prostate or BPH in men. An enlarged prostate means that your prostate is swollen. It can press against the tube that urine passes through, on its way out of your body. The problems associated with an enlarged prostate include:
- Weak urine stream
- Feeling that you cannot empty the urinary bladder
- Difficulty passing urine when you start to pass urine
- Delay before you start to pass urine
- Urinary urgency or need to pass urine more often, especially at night
- Feeling that you must pass urine right away
BPH is a common condition in men over the age of 50 years. In some men, the condition may cause serious issues, including urinary tract infection and the inability to pass urine at all. The prostate condition may also require surgery to improve the flow of urine.
Enlargement of the prostate gland, which occurs with advancing age in men is dependent upon testosterone being converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) within the male gland. DHT is a substance responsible for the development of BPH. In the absence of DHT, the prostate gland shrinks. Finasteride, the active ingredient in Proscar shrinks the prostate gland by decreasing the amount of DHT. Proscar help alleviate the associated symptoms including frequent urination, inability to empty the bladder during urination completely, and a weak urine stream.

Take one tablet of Proscar 5 mg once a day, preferably at the same time each day. A patient may either take it before or after consuming food. In case you forget a dose, do not get panic to leave the dose if you won’t remember for the entire day and take a dose the next day. Try not to double up your dose the next day.

Continue the treatment until your health care specialist tells you to stop.
