Dutasteride is used alone or with another medication (tamsulosin [Flomax]) to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH; enlargement of the prostate gland). Dutasteride is used to treat symptoms of BPH and may reduce the chance of developing acute urinary retention (sudden inability to urinate). Dutasteride may also decrease the chance that prostate surgery will be needed. Dutasteride is in a class of medications called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. It works by blocking the production of a natural substance that enlarges the prostate.
|Usage 1||Dutasteride is used to treat enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia [BPH]) in men with an enlarged prostate. It helps decrease your risk of a complete blockage of urine flow (acute urinary retention).|
|Usage 2||This drug can be as an alternative to surgery for men who are uncomfortable with undergoing surgery.
Dutasteride is used by men only.
|Usage 3||Dutasteride has been shown to affect sperm. It can lower sperm count, semen volume, and sperm movement. However, it isn’t known if dutasteride actually affects fertility.|
Why it's used
Dutasteride is used to treat enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia [BPH]). When the prostate is enlarged, it can pinch or squeeze your urethra and affect your ability to urinate. Dutasteride helps decrease your risk of a complete blockage of urine flow (acute urinary retention) and reduces your need for prostate surgery.
How it works
Dutasteride belongs to a class of drugs called 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors. A class of drugs refers to medications that work similarly. They’re often used to treat similar conditions.
There is a hormone in your blood called dihydrotestoterone (DHT), which causes your prostate to grow. Drugs like dutasteride prevent the formation of DHT in your body, causing an enlarged prostate to shrink.
