Drug treatment for men with lower urinary tract symptoms

In this chapter we consider the clinical and cost-effectiveness of drug treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). A number of medical treatments have been investigated for the treatment of LUTS. These include alpha blockers, 5α-reductase inhibitors (5-ARI) and numerous plant extracts. Aromatase inhibitors are only used in older clinical trials and will not be reviewed. There are considerable data on the safety and efficacy of alpha blockers and 5-ARIs and these data will be critically reviewed. Data on plant extracts are examined in the chapter on complementary treatments (chapter 14).
