Abstract: The efficacy and the safety of bromocriptine 7.5 mg daily were investigated in a double-blind versus placebo trial in 32 patients with troublesome symptoms from benign prostatic hypertrophy. Differences between the treatments in respect of uroflowmetry, residual urine and safety parameters were not statistically significant. Differences in respect of nocturia, daytime frequency and overall efficacy were statistically significant in favour of bromocriptine. There could be a place for bromocriptine in the palliative treatment of the functional disability caused by benign prostatic hypertrophy when surgery is refused or contraindicated.
