Prostacare® (finasteride) 5mg, 30 film coated tablets
Prostacare® (finasteride) is a medication used to reduce the size of the prostate in cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), resulting in a better urine flow, less urge to urinate, and a better feeling of completion after urinating. It can be used in conjunction with other medications to treat BPH. It works by decreasing the levels of DHT, a naturally occurring hormone that plays a role in increasing prostate size.
Typically Prostacare® (finasteride) is given as a single daily dose, and will exhibit slow shrinking of the prostate that might take 6-12 months to be noticeable. This is a prescription medication that might affect the patient’s libido and may increase the risk for prostate cancer, so discuss the potential risks and benefits with your healthcare provider. It is contraindicated for women and children. Also note that finasteride can be used for the treatment of hair loss in men; see our related product Prohair® (finasteride) for more info.
