Duodart 0.5mg/0.4mg Capsules 30’s





Duodart is used to treat men with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia) – a noncancerous growth of the prostate gland caused by producing too much of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone. Duoodart is a combination of two different medicines called dutasteride and tamsulosin. Dutasteride belongs to a group of medicines called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors and tamsulosin belongs to a group of medicines called alpha-blockers. As the prostate grows it can lead to urinary problems such as difficulty in passing urine and a need to go to the toilet frequently. It can also cause the flow of the urine to be slower and less forceful. If left untreated there is a risk that your urine flow will be completely blocked (acute urinary retention). This requires immediate medical treatment. Sometimes surgery is necessary to remove or reduce the size of the prostate gland. Dutasteride lowers the production of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone which helps to shrink the prostate and relieve the symptoms. This will reduce the risk of acute urinary retention and the need for surgery. Tamsulosin acts by relaxing the muscles in your prostate gland making it easier to pass urine and rapidly improving your symptoms.
