DUTASTERIDE+TAMSULOSIN 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. DUTASTERIDE+TAMSULOSIN helps in getting relief from these symptoms. And also, DUTASTERIDE+TAMSULOSIN does not cure prostate cancer.
DUTASTERIDE+TAMSULOSIN 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).

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
DUTASTERIDE+TAMSULOSIN contains tamsulosin (alpha-blockers) and dutasteride (5-alpha reductase inhibitor), primarily in treating the enlarged prostate gland. As the gland enlarges, it can lead to urinary problems, such as difficulty passing urine and a frequent urination urge. Dutasteride lowers the production of dihydrotestosterone hormone, which leads to a decrease in the size of the prostate and, as a result, relieves the symptoms. This will reduce the risk of acute urinary retention and the need for surgery. Tamsulosin makes it easy to pass urine by relaxing the muscles of the gland. Collectively, both of them improve the symptoms of Benign Hyperplasia Prostate (BPH).
