Afal tablets are intended for oral use, that is, inside. In one session it is recommended to use 2 tablets of the drug, which must be kept in the mouth before they are completely dissolved. The drug should not be taken during or immediately after a meal, as this significantly reduces its therapeutic effect. Doctors recommend taking the drug Afalas 1-2 hours before meals. Depending on the severity of clinical symptoms of prostate pathology, the patient is prescribed an individual effective dose and duration of therapy, but in most cases, the drug is prescribed to take twice a day 2 tablets - in the morning and in the evening. Duration of therapy for each patient is strictly individual, but, in general, should not exceed 4 months of continuous use. If the symptoms of the disease have not passed or made themselves felt with renewed vigor, the patient can undergo a second course of treatment with Afal tablets, but not earlier than 1 month after the end of the previous course.
If the pain syndrome and dysuric disorders are very pronounced, then in the first couple of weeks from the beginning of the course of therapy, the daily dose can be increased up to 4 times by 2 tablets, that is, taking 8 tablets per day. During this period, it is important to monitor the patient's condition and if any negative symptoms or side effects occur, the dose of the drug should be reduced.

- Diarrhea or constipation,
- Bloating and increased gas production,
- Pain in the abdomen and other dyspeptic phenomena.
