About URITIN TABLET

URITIN TABLET 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.

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.
