What other medications can be used to treat an enlarged prostate, bladder infections or overactive bladder?

Along with over-the-counter herbal medicinal products, for severe cases there are various chemically defined substances and preparations available.

These require a prescription from a doctor. A brief summary:

  • prostate medications
  • alpha blockers
  • 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors
  • antibiotics
  • spasmolytics

What are alpha blockers and 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors?

These are chemical prostate medications that are prescribed by a doctor for more severe forms of benign enlargement of the prostate. Alpha blockers relax the opening to the bladder as well as relaxing the prostate and relieving the pressure placed on it, which improves the symptoms experienced when urinating. 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors can stop the growth of the prostate and can even lead to a reduction in the size of the gland. The symptoms when urinating are alleviated and the risk of surgery is reduced. Taking alpha blockers and 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors may lead to erectile dysfunction, loss of libido and retrograde ejaculation.


Antibiotics are used to treat infections caused by bacteria. In the bladder-prostate system this concerns primarily bladder and prostate infections. There are a range of active ingredients available for doctors to prescribe.

How do spasmolytics work?

These antispasmodic medicinal products relax the smooth muscles of the bladder-prostate system, relieving the symptoms associated with overactive bladder.
