Some medications, particularly Alpha-blockers, can help alleviate the urinary symptoms that come with BPH. Alpha reductase inhibitors may help stop the prostatic growth by stopping testosterone from turning to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that in certain men may trigger the growth of the prostate. Alpha-blockers may also reduce the size of the prostate slightly, easing the symptoms. The treatment must be monitored by a urology specialist to make sure there aren't any harmful adverse effects, and to ensure that it's functioning.
