Compare Meds for Treating Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
About 6 in 10 men develop benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) by age 60...leading to urinary hesitancy, nocturia, a weak stream, etc.
Emphasize nondrug measures...such as limiting fluids at bedtime, alcohol, and caffeine. Reinforce exercise...strengthening pelvic floor muscles may improve bladder control and urination.
Also assess for constipation...and treat it if necessary.
