General information

Generic Proscar (Finasteride) is prescribed to treat symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia in men with an enlarged prostate. By shrinking the enlarged prostate, Finasteride reduces urinary blockage and improves the flow of urine. Generic Proscar (Finasteride) is a type of steroid reductase inhibitor. It works by reducing the amount of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. This makes the prostate gland smaller, which helps to relieve urinary problems.
