About Urilosin-D 0.5 mg Tablet 10's

Urilosin-D 0.5 mg Tablet 10's is a combination drug containing 'urinary bladder relaxant' medication, used primarily in treating the enlarged prostate gland. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland caused due to overproduction of a dihydrotestosterone hormone in men. As the gland enlarges, it can lead to urinary problems, such as difficulty passing urine and frequent urination. Urilosin-D 0.5 mg Tablet 10's helps in getting relief from these symptoms. And also, Urilosin-D 0.5 mg Tablet 10's does not cure prostate cancer.

Urilosin-D 0.5 mg Tablet 10's contains Tamsulosin (alpha-blockers) and Dutasteride (5-alpha reductase inhibitor), primarily used to treat enlarged prostate glands. Tamsulosin makes it easy to pass urine by relaxing the muscles of the prostate gland. On the other hand, Dutasteride reduces the enlarged prostate gland's size by lowering the production of dihydrotestosterone hormone, thereby relieving the symptoms of urinary incontinence that minimizing the need for prostate surgery and the risk of acute urinary retention. Collectively, both of them improve the symptoms of Benign Hyperplasia Prostate (BPH).
