Description

Why is Proscar prescribed?

Proscar (Finasteride) is used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with an enlarged prostate. It prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is involved in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Finasteride (Generic) is available in addition to the brand name Proscar. 

 

What is the most effective way to take Proscar?

Take Proscar exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

  • Take this medicine with a full glass of water
  • Proscar can be taken with or without food. Take the medicine at the same time each day.
  • To be sure Proscar is helping your condition and not causing harmful effects, your blood may need to be tested often. Your doctor will also test your prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to check for prostate cancer. Visit your doctor regularly.
  • Use Proscar regularly to get the most benefit. Get your prescription refilled before you run out of medicine completely.
  • Store Proscar at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.
