1. What Finasteride 5 mg Tablets are and what they are used for
Finasteride 5 mg Tablets contain a medicine called finasteride. This belongs to a group of medicines called ‘5-alpha-reductase inhibitors’. Finasteride 5 mg Tablets shrink the prostate gland in men when it is swollen. The prostate gland is found underneath the bladder (but only in men). It produces the fluid found in semen. A swollen prostate gland can lead to a condition called ‘benign prostatic hyperplasia’ or BPH.
What is BPH?
If you have BPH it means that your prostate gland is swollen. It can press on the tube that urine passes through, on its way out of your body.
This can lead to problems such as:
- feeling like you need to pass urine more often, especially at night
- feeling that you must pass urine right away
- finding it difficult to start passing urine
- when you pass urine the flow of urine is weak
- when you pass urine the flow stops and starts
- feeling that you cannot empty your bladder completely.
In some men, BPH can lead to more serious problems, such as:
- urinary tract infections
- a sudden inability to pass urine
- the need for surgery.
What else should you know about BPH?
- BPH is not cancer and does not lead to cancer, but the two conditions can be present at the same time.
- Before you start Finasteride 5 mg Tablets, your doctor will do some simple tests to check whether you have prostate cancer.
Talk to your doctor if you have any questions about this.
