The drug can not be taken during or immediately after a meal, as this significantly reduces its therapeutic effect. Doctors recommend taking the drug Afala for 1-2 hours before meals. Depending on the severity of the clinical symptoms of prostate pathology, the patient signs an individual effective dose and duration of the course of therapy, but in most cases the drug is prescribed to take 2 tablets twice a day, in the morning and evening. The 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 a new force, then the patient can undergo a repeated 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 start of the course of therapy, the daily dose can be increased up to 4 times 2 tablets, that is, take 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 should be reduced.

- Diarrhea or constipation
- Abdominal distention and gas formation,
