How does Finstal – 5 Tablets work?
The prostate gland is found underneath the bladder (but only in man). It produces the fluid found in semen. A swollen prostate gland can lead to a condition called ‘benign prostatic hyperplaia’ (BPH).
Finasteride causes shrinkage of the enlarged prostate, improves urinary flow and symptoms caused by BPH, and reduces the risk of you developing a sudden inability to pass urine (known as acute urinary retention) and the need for surgery.
What is benign prostatic hyperplasia – 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 pass 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
