Active Ingredients

#
Chemical substance
Description
1
Dutasteride

Dutasteride reduces circulating levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by inhibiting both type 1 and type 2, 5α-reductase isoenzymes which are responsible for the conversion of testosterone to DHT.

2
Tamsulosin

Tamsulosin binds selectively and competitively to post-synaptic α1-adrenoreceptors, prevailingly their subtypes designated α1A and α1D. Thus relaxation of smooth muscles of the prostate and urethra is achieved, which leads to a reduction of tonus and an improvement of the urinary flow.
