Proscar for men helps reduce the effects of aging on the prostate and with hair loss
As you know, it is important to me that you are living your best life. And one thing i know that begins to be on my mind as a man who is crawling through his early 40’s is my prostate. There are so many things that you need to be aware of and careful for, and one that i recently heard about from my doctor was BHP, or Benign prostatic hyperplasia. In this article i want to discuss a treatment known as proscar that you can use to help control this issue if you suspect that you might be suffering from this.
Get checked after 50
You probably know that, by the time you hit 50, you need to start getting your prostate checked about every 4 years, to check for any number of issues that may come to light for an older gentleman such as yourself. And BHP, which is a condition where men have an enlarged prostate, will affect 50% of all men between the ages of 51to 60. Well, this is where Proscar comes in. Proscar is used to treat the symptoms of BPH in men. While there may be other, unrelated, uses for this product this is its primary function.
How Proscar works
Proscar works by preventing a conversion that turns your testosterone into something known as dihydrotestosterone in the body. This is the same process that causes male patterned baldness and has a similar active ingredient in treating male patterned baldness. Proscar is a prescription that is to be taken by a male only. It is toxic to women and children, and even though the pills are known to be coated, any breakage can cause the chemical to be absorbed into the skin. This can cause birth defects in woman if they are exposed to it while carrying a child. If this happens make certain that they do not take the medication and that they wash their hands immediately.
Speak with your doctor in Melbourne
As with just about any medication you’ll ever hear me talk about, you need to schedule an appointment with your doctor to ensure that Proscar is the right decision for you. There are allergic reactions, side effect, etc. If you ARE allergic to finasteride, or a similar medicine called dutasteride, than your doctor needs to know this! And even though Proscar in Australia is used to treat your enlarged prostate, you will surely want to know that this medication does increase your risk to develop prostate cancer. Your doctor will surely cover this and perform and of the necessary test to make sure that there will be no danger involved in you taking this long term.
If you notice and type of issue in your breasts like pain, discharge of the nipples, lump, bumps, or any other issue you should go back and talk to your doctor. This could be sign of male breast cancer.
How to take Proscar
Your doctor will also discuss proper dosing information with you, be sure to follow their instruction and the instructions that will be listed on the label of the bottle given to you at all times. Take Proscar with a FULL glass of water, and take it every day at roughly the same time. If you notice that you’ve missed a dose of Proscar do not put off taking it, take a dose the moment you notice you have missed one to reduce the chances of your body coming off of its effects.
Schedule a follow up
Once you start taking this medicine, your doctor will likely schedule many follow up appointments with you. Your blood is going to need to be checked on a regular basis to make sure that the medicine is not having any adverse effects on you. You may also get tested to make sure you are not carrying a specific antigen that shows up when you are looking for prostate cancer.
Store at room temperature
Proscar needs to always be stored in a cool, dry, and dark place that happens to also be around room temperature to be kept in optimal condition. Also make sure the cap stays on and that it is fully closed. Ultimately an enlarged prostate is no fun, but Proscar is here to help, so if you feel like this might be for you and you’ve been noticing any issues of a possible enlarged prostate recently. talk to your doctor, and as always be happy, and be healthy.
