This antiandrogen medication is frequently used in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Proscar contains finasteride, a hormonal compound, which is supplied in oral tablets of 5mg.

How does Proscar work?

Finasteride reduces the release of a body hormone called DHT which is responsible for causing prostate enlargement. When levels of DHT are limited, the swollen prostate gland is able to shrink, greatly reducing the need for surgery. Proscar improves the flow of urine, and decreases the desire to urinate frequently, particularly during the night.

Dosage instructions

Your doctor will give instructions regarding your dose. Generally the dose is administered once a day at the same time. You do not have to take this drug with food.

To achieve maximum results, maintain a regular dosing schedule, as prescribed. Avoid missing any dose.

Safety warnings

Proscar is a drug for men only. If a woman who is pregnant handles the contents of the tablets, this can seriously hamper the sexual development of an unborn baby boy. If, by accident, a pregnant woman does handle, or inhale, the contents of a tablet, she should immediately get medical advice.

If you are allergic to any medication, inform your doctor. Your doctor will ask about your past medical history, and if you have been affected with any of the following: liver problems, prostate cancer, or urinary tract infections. Also give your doctor names of all other medicines and supplements that you use regularly.

Proscar may be associated with male breast cancer. Contact your doctor urgently and tell him or her if you have a lump in your breast, discharge from your nipples, or any other breast discomfort.

There may be some beverages or types of food that your doctor will advise you to limit during treatment. Follow your doctor’s orders at all times.

Proscar could make you dizzy and unstable on your feet. Therefore after resting on your bed, or relaxing in a chair, rise slowly to avoid a fall.

While using Proscar, if you undergo a test to measure the protein levels in your prostate, make sure you inform the relevant personnel that you are taking Proscar. This may affect the test result.
