Dutasteride

Uses
Dutasteride is used in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in older men.

Dihydrotestosterone is responsible for making the prostate enlarged. Therefore, a reduced amount of dihydrotestosterone with the help of Dutasteride causes the prostate to shrink, this helps in the passing of urine more easily.
