About TAMSUKEM 0.4MG TABLET 15'S

TAMSUKEM 0.4MG TABLET 15'S belongs to the category of medicine known as alpha-blocker, used primarily for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia - BPH (enlarged prostate), and urinary bladder outlet obstruction. It acts by relaxing prostate gland’s muscles and urinary bladder neck at the obstruction site that results in improved urine flow with reduced BPH symptoms. TAMSUKEM 0.4MG TABLET 15'S are for use by men only and not indicated for use in women. TAMSUKEM 0.4MG TABLET 15'S does not cure prostate cancer.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland caused due to overproduction of a hormone called ‘dihydrotestosterone’ in men.
