Proscar, also known by it's generic name Finasteride can be prescribed to reduce the size of an enlarged prostate (benign prosatic hyperplasia or BPH) in adult men by reducing the hormone DHT that causes the prostate to become enlarged. Finasteride has the chance to improve symptoms of BPH by lessening the urge to urinate, create better urine flow, reduce the feeling of your bladder not being fully empty, and reduce the need for night time urination.
