Preparations for the prostate

The prostate, also known as the prostate gland, is a strange organ that is part of the male reproductive system. The shape of the prostate is often likened to an edible chestnut because it looks like a flattened cone.

The three main diseases of the prostate are prostate, benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer. All three diseases can co-exist in the same prostate. That is, the presence of prostatitis does not rule out the presence of prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer in the patient and vice versa.

There are a number of effective drugs in the group of medicines for the treatment of diseases of the prostate gland that improve the condition of the prostate tissues and the general condition of the patient's body. What medications help a person alleviate tissue overgrowth and the associated discomfort, and what are their effects?


The prostate gland consists of two lobes, right and left, connected by a node below the bladder. The back is right next to the rectum, so the prostate is examined through the rectum (this is called a digital rectal examination).

Part of the male urethra passes through the prostate, so when this organ is enlarged or inflamed, the man has urinary problems. Benign prostate cancer is the most common urination problem.

How do you feel the enlargement of the prostate? At first, the man begins to go to the toilet much more often, experiencing strong pressure than with an overflowing bladder. In the case of frequent nocturnal urges, this is called nocturia.

Another sign is pain during urination, higher pressure from the jet, while the start of the journey to the toilet is prolonged in time. Sometimes urine is excreted from the urethra after emptying, and in advanced cases, urinary retention may occur with a severe enlargement of the prostate.

Prescription drugs for the treatment of the prostate

drugs for the treatment of prostatitis

It is important to note that prescription drugs can only be prescribed by a healthcare professional and, unlike dietary supplements, they are not classified as drugs but as drugs. The patient should follow the instructions carefully.

Here is a list of medicines for thinking:

  • Finasteride.This substance is intended to reduce serum, urine, and prostate levels of 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone. In this case, a natural decrease in prostate size and an increase in the maximum urine flow rate are observed, reducing the risk of acute retention and associated relapses.
  • Afluzosin.This substance improves the process of emptying the bladder by relaxing the tone of the urethra. The muscle wall relaxes, urine flows freely, releasing the bladder without resistance.
  • Dutasteride.This inhibits testosterone 5 alpha reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone 5 alpha dihydrotestosterone. This substance quickly and effectively reduces the production of substances that contribute to prostate proliferation. Thus, the symptoms of the problem disappear.
  • Silodosin.Its mechanism of action reduces the discomfort of a swollen bladder, which is associated with excessive accumulation and excretion of urine.

OTC drugs to treat the prostate

  • Sereno fruit extract(also known as dwarf palm or saw palm). Preparations containing plant extracts are herbal products. They suppress 5-alpha-reductase activity, which in turn reduces dihydrotestosterone synthesis and has an antiandrogenic effect, or in other words, slows tissue growth. Palm fruit extracts also act as anti-inflammatory and decongestant drugs, which also contribute to reducing the volume of the prostate gland.
  • African plum bark extract.Formulations with this additive help improve the condition in many ways - the growth of cancer cells is reduced, half as much urine leaves the urethra and the rate of urination increases. A lipid-sterol complex whose main active ingredient is beta-sitosterol is responsible for the pharmacological effect. In addition, the lipid-sterol complex improves prostate tissue metabolism by suppressing stimulation of glandular stroma.
  • Pumpkin seed oil.Pumpkin seed oil formulations are dietary supplements that support the proper functioning of the prostate and bladder. It is used both to prevent prostate enlargement and to prevent later life. These formulations generally contain a cold pressed oil rich in essential fatty acids, especially omega-6. In parallel, these acids improve brain health, efficiency, eye alertness, the health of joints and many other tissues in the body.
  • Blooming Sally.The compositions can be prepared in various forms - both capsules containing herbal extract and teas. The small-flowered ivan tea has a really beneficial effect on prostate function, can be used for prevention, and once the problem has occurred, to alleviate the condition with a complex treatment.
