Disease/Condition Glossary

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH): It is the enlargement of the prostate gland. It is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland caused due to overproduction of dihydrotestosterone hormone in men. After age 50, most men develop an enlarged prostate gland putting pressure on the urinary bladder. It leads to restricted or obstructed urine flow, the urge to urinate frequently (especially at night) and the feeling of not emptying the urinary bladder.

FAQs

Simple lifestyle changes may help you control your symptoms better. Try to urinate when you first get the need. However, take care not to push or strain to clear your bladder. Prevent drinking fluids (especially caffeine, alcohol) a few hours before going out or bedtime. It would help if you also prevented medicines that can worsen urinary symptoms. These consist of some over the counter medicines for cough and cold.

NAFODIL 75MG TABLET contains naftopidil (alpha-blocker), which primarily treats the enlarged prostate gland. NAFODIL 75MG TABLET makes it easy to pass urine by relaxing the muscles around the bladder exit and prostate gland. Effectively, it improves the symptoms of BPH like urine flow, hesitation, and incomplete bladder emptying.

No, taking any cold or cough medication along with NAFODIL 75MG TABLET should be avoided as it increases the urge to urinate. So, before taking any such medication, please consult your doctor.
