5-Alpha Reductase Inhibitors

Prostate Enlargement
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

5-alpha reductase inhibitors: what are these compounds? Their uses in treating disorders; the side-effects they might exhibit and the herbs found in nature containing this compound.

5-alpha reductase inhibitors is a set of drugs that exhibit the effect of preventing the androgens from harming and affecting the responsive tissues of the human body. They are of immense use for the treatment of androgenic alopecia as well as prostate cancers in men. 5-alpha reductase inhibitors are helpful in reducing the formation of Dihydrotestosterone, an androgenic hormone and a sex steroid, in adrenal gland, prostate, hair follicles and testes which might cause urinary disorders, benign prostatic hyperplasia, androgenic alopecia and prostate cancer.

How They Work in Treating Disorders?

5-alpha reductase inhibitors provide interference with the effects that certain male hormones have on the prostate gland. This phenomenon may cause the slower growth rate of the prostate and even might cause it to shrink which might aid in treating the BPH syndrome in which the prostate enlarges in size. Usually the size of the prostate gland cannot ensure how severe the disease is in a man; hence once you stop taking the medicines, the symptoms might return.

The 5-alpha reductase inhibitors are not recommended for men who do not have a noticeable enlarged prostate. It should only be prescribed to those who are exhibiting bothersome and moderate BPH symptoms. Suppositories containing Endosterol often are extremely helpful in decreasing the complication risks like urinary retention and also might prove helpful in preventing needs of surgery.


Side Effects and Risks of These Inhibitors

The intake of 5-alpha reductase inhibitors such as beta sitosteral which can be found in Endosterol can provide noticeable benefits on your health if taken for 6 to 12 months. An alpha blocker in combination with the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors can work better in relieving you of the disease complications and risks.

But with every drug and medicine, there are certain risks and side effects that also should be known before you opt for them. Some of the side effects pertaining to 5-alpha reductase inhibitors are:

  • enderness or enlargement in breasts.

  • Depression, anxiety and even some allergic reactions.

But these side effects are temporary and might go away after a year of the drug intake. The most important point to keep in mind is that the 5-alpha reductase inhibitors do not cure your disease but will go a long way in reducing the size of your enlarged prostate. Hence there is no confirmation and once you stop taking the drug, the symptoms might even return.

Moreover, these 5-alpha reductase inhibitors and such compounds are not suggested for men who wish to become fathers in the future as there is a less likely chance of causing a birth defect. Even the pregnant or expecting women too should avoid any such contacts with these compounds.
