In most patients, these phenomena were transient.

Before the start of treatment, it is necessary to exclude diseases that can simulate benign prostatic hyperplasia, such as infectious prostatitis, prostate cancer, urethral stricture, bladder hypotension, and a number of changes in the urinary system that occur in certain diseases of the nervous system. Since the use of finasteride decreases prostate-specific antigen (by 41% and 48%, respectively, by 6 and 12 months from the start of therapy), periodically during the therapy it is necessary to conduct a patient examination to exclude prostate cancer from them. Women of childbearing age and pregnant women should avoid contact with the finely divided tablets of Finasteride. the ability of the drug to inhibit the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone may cause impaired development of the genital organs in the male fetus. Finasteride tablets are film-coated and, under normal handling, if they are not ground into powder or their integrity is impaired, contact with the active substance is excluded.
