Dosage and Administration
Prostamol® Uno is convenient for administration: just one capsule per day. One pack of 30 capsules is enough for a one-month treatment.
The minimum recommended course of admission should be at least three months. Given the fact that prostatic hyperplasia is a progressive disease, the treatment, most likely, will require a long or even constant duration.

Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate. There are two types of prostatitis in men: acute and chronic. Acute prostatitis develops because of a bacterial infection in the prostate gland. Manifestations of chronic prostatitis include: urgent urination, perineal pain, sexual dysfunction, etc. According to modern scientific data, long-term chronic prostatitis can be one of the causes of the onset and progression of prostatic hyperplasia.
Prostate adenoma is a benign prostatic hyperplasia. With age, the risk of the development of the prostate adenoma increases significantly. Statistics says that about half of men over 50 y.o. complain about symptoms in the lower urinary tract caused by prostatic hyperplasia. The reasons for the occurrence of adenoma have not been fully identified, but the most probable reason behind it is a certain hormonal rearrangement of the body, which causes the growth of the so-called adenomatous tissue in the prostate. In this case, as a rule, a compression of the urethra occurs, normal outflow of urine is disrupted, and men begin to experience various kinds of unpleasant sensations.
The role of phyto preparations in the treatment of symptoms of the lower urinary tract associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) remains the subject of much research and debate. Preparations of Serenoa repens are of a peculiar interest among the plant extracts. In Russia and the CIS countries, a drug that is quite frequently prescribed and highly evaluated by physicians is Prostamol® Uno.
Its main component is the Serenoa repens (saw palmetto) fruit extract, which is endemic to the southeastern coast of the United States. The first use of the extract for the treatment of urinary tract disorders is attributed to American Indians. The extract demonstrates antiproliferative, antiandrogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous effects, selectively manifested at the level of the prostate gland. The drug does not affect the levels of sex hormones in the blood plasma; it does not affect the potency and libido, and does not change the level of specific prostatic antigen in the blood plasma.
