Finasteride 5mg is a generic version of popular branded medicines that belong to the group called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors.

Finasteride 5mg shrinks the prostate gland in men when it is swollen. Finasteride 5mg is used in the treatment and control of benign (i.e., non-cancerous) enlargement of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia – BPH).

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 (BPH)’. Finasteride 5mg 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.

Finasteride 5mg should be administered in patients with an enlarged prostate (prostate volume above ca. 40 ml).

Warnings & Precautions

Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should not handle finasteride tablets especially if crushed or broken because of the possibility of absorption of finasteride and the subsequent potential risk to a male fetus.

If your sexual partner is or may potentially be pregnant, you should avoid exposing her to your semen which could contain a tiny amount of the drug.

If you have a large amount of residual urine in your bladder after urinating and/or severely reduced urinary flow, you should be closely monitored for narrowing of the urinary tract.

If you have a blood test called PSA (test used to detect prostate cancer). Tell your doctor that you are taking finasteride. Finasteride can affect the blood levels of the substance being tested, PSA.
