Finasteride is a medicine marketed under the name Proscar. It is a member of the 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor drug class. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a disorder in which the prostate gland enlarges, is the main indication for the use of Proscar. This medication lessens the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that promotes prostate growth, by blocking the action of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme.
