Dutasteride belongs to a class of medications known as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. It is used to relieve symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) in men with enlarged prostates. BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that usually occurs in men after the age of 50.

Dutasteride works to reduce the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that causes enlargement of the prostate gland. Dutasteride relieves symptoms of BPH by reducing the size of the prostate and improving the flow of urine.

This medication improves symptoms associated with BPH, such as:

  • decreased urine flow
  • difficulty urinating
  • getting up to urinate during the night
  • hesitation at the start of urination

Dutasteride may be prescribed along with another medication called Tamsulosin in order to decrease the symptoms of BPH.

It may take 6 months or more to see the full effects of Med Dutasteride. Dutasteride reduces the likelihood of prostate surgery for men with BPH. It must be taken on a regular basis to be effective. If the medication is stopped, the prostate will start to grow again.

Med Dutasteride may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Med Dutasteride may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.
