Understanding Medication Treatments:
BPH symptom relief can be treated with a variety of different pharmaceutical options. Medication is most commonly used for patients with mild to moderate severity of BPH. This treatment option is used to alleviate BPH symptoms, including a weak urine stream.
Patients who receive an early diagnosis of BPH may benefit from medication treatment. Patients who do not want surgery or a minimally invasive surgical treatment should consider medication as their option. Post-surgical treatment, some patients may need to continue taking BPH medication.
BPH medication has many unintended side effects, including muscle pain, headaches, vision problems, erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, dizziness, fainting, and low blood pressure. Side effects can vary from patient to patient and can get better with time.
