The combination of dutasteride and tamsulosin is prescribed to treat men who are experiencing symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Benign enlargement of the prostate is a common issue that tends to occur as men age.

Dutasteride functions by inhibiting the action of an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, responsible for converting testosterone into another hormone that triggers prostate gland growth. As a result of dutasteride’s action, the prostate size decreases. Tamsulosin contributes to the treatment by relaxing the muscles in the prostate gland and the bladder’s opening. This relaxation helps enhance urine flow and may alleviate associated symptoms of BPH.
