As its name suggests, Combodart is a combination of two medicines - Tamsulosin and Dutasteride. These have been proven effective at treating the symptoms and underlying cause of prostate enlargement, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), respectively.
Prostate enlargement is a condition that affects many men, especially as they age. Symptoms generally involve a difficulty urinating or an increase in the frequency of urination.
Combodart offers a safer alternative to surgery, allowing sufferers of BPH to continue to lead lives free of discomfort.
The symptoms of prostate enlargement are caused by the organ swelling so that it presses against the urethra. The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder and out of your penis — a restricted urethra results in a weaker flow during urination.
Though not generally considered a serious ailment, an enlarged prostate can be very uncomfortable. You should always explore treatments if any condition is causing you discomfort.
Combodart contains two active ingredients, both of which work slightly differently. This dual-action allows it to treat both the symptoms and cause of the condition.
Tamsulosin, an alpha-blocker, is the first of Combodart’s ingredients. It relaxes the muscles around the prostate, relieving pressure on the urethra.
The second of Combodart’s active ingredients is Dutasteride. This medication belongs to the class of medicines known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. They work by counteracting the male hormones (androgens) that cause the prostate gland to grow.
