Afalase for the treatment and prevention of the prostate gland

Prostate hyperplasia negatively affects men’s health, provoking stagnation of blood in the pelvis and making it difficult to have a full erection. In the early stages of the disease, conservative therapy is used, using medications.

The medicine is selected individually, taking into account possible side effects and the nature of the pathology that has arisen. For the treatment of the initial stages of the disease, urologists prefer the drug Afalase , which is well tolerated by patients. Consider what he says about the medicine.

General information about the drug

The medicine belongs to immunomodulators and not only helps to eliminate the symptoms that have arisen, but also increases the body’s defenses, increasing local immunity at the cellular level. Let’s get acquainted with the main characteristics of the drug:

  • compound;
  • influence on the body;
  • release form.


The active active ingredients of Afalaza are specific antibodies:

  • to endothelial NO- synthase ;
  • to prostate -specific antigen.

One dose of the drug contains 0.006 g of each of the components.

The antibodies underwent affinity purification and became “faceless”, getting rid of excess proteins and donor DNA, which made their use safe for the patient and reduced the risk of unwanted side reactions.

In addition to specific antibodies, the tablet contains inactive components:

  • Magnesium stearate ;
  • Lactose;
  • Cellulose.

When taking the medicine, the auxiliary elements dissolve under the action of salivary enzymes, releasing the active substances.


After taking the medicine, the active ingredients dissolve with saliva and are absorbed through the hyoid artery and gastric wall, after which they enter the prostate tissues with the blood flow and have the following effect on the organ:

  • improves metabolic processes in cells;
  • vascular spasm is reduced and full blood flow is restored;
  • damaged epithelial cells are restored;
  • the resulting hyperplasia is partially reduced;
  • ejaculate liquefies and sperm activity increases:
  • signs of stagnation of blood in the pelvic organs are eliminated.

The drug stimulates cellular immunity, reduces swelling and inflammation of the prostate, and partially (by restoring full blood flow and eliminating congestion) improves the functioning of other organs of the small pelvis.

According to men, treatment with a drug helps to get rid of problems with urination and restore impaired erection. Some representatives of the stronger sex note that after taking the medicine, their previously lost reproductive function was restored.

Release form

Produced in tablets, packaged in blisters of 20 pcs.

In pharmacies, you can buy white and blue cardboard packages containing 1, 3 or 5 blisters.

Indications and contraindications


The drug is prescribed to men to eliminate the following symptoms:

  • erectile dysfunction;
  • urination disorder (difficulty passing urine, frequent urge to go to the toilet);
  • inflammatory processes in acute or exacerbated chronic prostatitis;
  • prostate adenoma stage I and II.

Also, the medication is prescribed to the patient before preparing for surgery on the prostate gland and in the postoperative period to stimulate tissue regeneration processes.

The reviews indicate that the drug is well tolerated and helps to quickly relieve a man of pain in the prostate gland and reduce signs of inflammation. And long-term use of the drug is not addictive – after stopping the drug, the patient does not experience signs of deterioration in well-being.


The only contraindication for the use of Afalase is intolerance to one of the substances that make up the tablet.

Antibody intolerance in patients has not been identified to date, but excipients are sometimes poorly tolerated by patients, causing allergic reactions.

special instructions

This information is not prohibited, but before using the drug, read this section to avoid unwanted effects from treatment:

  • Be wary appoint persons with individual lactose intolerance and hypertension (possible development of crises).
  • You can not take alcohol during therapy. The combined use of Afalase and alcohol leads to the fact that the effectiveness of the drug is greatly reduced and side effects such as weakness, drowsiness and loss of strength develop, and skin rashes may appear. At the time of the therapeutic course, you must stop drinking alcohol.

The drug does not affect psychomotor functions and during treatment it is allowed to drive a car or work with moving tools.

Dosage and administration

The dosage of the drug depends on the type of disorder that has arisen:

  • Pain and marked dysuria. Assign during the period of exacerbations 4 times a dose of 2 tablets. After 2 weeks of therapy, the dosage is gradually reduced to 2 times a day.
  • Pathologies not associated with acute disorders. Drink daily 2 tablets in the morning and evening.

Pills should not be swallowed with water – they must be kept in the mouth until completely dissolved.

The duration of therapy is selected individually, and the course of treatment lasts from 4 to 16 weeks. If necessary, after a month break, it is possible to conduct a second course of drug therapy.

drug interaction

The RLS states that Afalase is allowed to be taken with any drugs that do not contain alcohol.


If the dose for a single dose is exceeded, the patient may develop dyspeptic disorders:

  • diarrhea (less often – constipation);
  • increased gas formation;
  • stomach ache;
  • nausea;
  • vomit.

A moderate deterioration in well-being does not require treatment and disappears after discontinuation of the drug. In case of severe vomiting, diarrhea or pain, you should contact a medical facility.

After the signs of an overdose disappear, it is not forbidden to continue treatment, but it is necessary to consult with your doctor about the dose to be taken.

In Moscow pharmacies, the medicine costs about 500 rubles, and if you order it on specialized sites, you will have to pay 420-430 rubles for the purchase, and you have to drink the medicine for a long time and not always the patient can pay for the entire treatment course.
