Proscar - Overview

Proscar is a medication primarily used for treating symptoms related to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men. Men who might need a new Proscar medication prescription or refill can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Proscar, including generic Proscar 5 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.

What Is Proscar Used For?

Proscar, like Propecia, contains the active ingredient finasteride and belongs to a class of medications known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors - similar to dutasteride (Avodart). As this type of medication, Proscar blocks the enzyme 5-alpha reductase which is responsible for converting a male androgen hormone known as testosterone into 5-alpha dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is partially responsible for enlarging the prostate gland which is why Proscar's effect of blocking its production may help with reducing the size of the prostate gland and associated symptoms that result because of it.

Proscar - Cost and Dosing

While generic Proscar is less expensive, branded Proscar tablets are moderately expensive, costing approximately $5 or more per Proscar 5 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. It is very possible that any costs associated with a Proscar medication prescription are covered by one's insurance plan but it is necessary to check with the plan to confirm coverage. Proscar coupons can also be located in different places at times. Proscar is available as Proscar 5 mg tablets which are blue in color, film-coated and apple-shaped. Proscar tablets should typically be stored below 30° C but check the package insert for exact directions. The usual starting dosage is Proscar 5 mg daily but the regimen prescribed depends on the judgement of the medical provider and the specific health needs of the patient.

Can I Buy Proscar Online?

Proscar requires a prescription to be dispensed by pharmacies in the United States which means that one cannot simply buy Proscar online as the first step is consulting with a medical provider to get a prescription. Because of these rules, Proscar OTC (over the counter) is not available, either. People who need a Proscar medication prescription, including generic Proscar 5 mg tablets, can use Push Health to consult with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe Proscar tablets when appropriate to do so.

Proscar - Side Effects

Proscar can cause side effects, and concerns about using the medication should be discussed with a pharmacist and medical provider before use. Side effects that can occur from Proscar medication use include low libido, impotence, trouble ejaculating, breast enlargement and tenderness, nausea and a rash. Women who are pregnant or might be pregnant should not be near Proscar tablets. Proscar should not be used by pediatric patients. Proscar use can affect PSA levels. Proscar and alcohol should not be used together. People with an allergy or hypersensitivity to Proscar or ingredients in the formulation should not use the medication.
