INTRODUCTION

DUPROST 0.5MG contains Dutasteride which belongs to a group of medicines called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. It is used to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with an enlarged prostate to improve symptoms, reduces the risk of acute urinary retention and the need for BPH-related surgery. Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland in men.

Symptoms of Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) may include difficulty in urination, urinary frequency and an inability to complete bladder emptying. It can also cause slower and less flow of the urine. If left untreated, there is a risk of acute urinary retention (urine flow will be completely blocked) which requires immediate medical treatment.

DUPROST 0.5MG prevents excessive Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) production in the prostate gland, delays the progression of an enlarged prostate and improves symptoms of BPH.

It is not recommended for women, children and adolescents. The common side effects are low sexual drive, impotence and decreases sperm count. Before taking this medicine tell your doctor if you are taking any other medications.
