Dutsul T 0.4mg/0.5mg Tablet MR may be taken with or without food but it should be taken at the same time each day. Your doctor will prescribe the dose most suitable for you. To gain the most benefit and to treat your symptoms effectively, you should not miss doses, even if you feel well. It may take up to 4 weeks to notice an improvement in the symptoms but keep taking them regularly. Tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after 4 weeks or if they get worse.

The most common side effects of this medicine include impotence, decreased libido, breast pain, and ejaculation disorder. If these side effects worry you or do not go away, call your doctor for advice. You may also feel dizzy or drowsy. These risks are higher when you first start taking this drug. Remember, your doctor has given you this medicine because the benefits are greater than the risks of the side effects.

Dutsul T 0.4mg/0.5mg Tablet MR should not be taken by women or children. Before taking it, tell your doctor if you have low blood pressure or liver or kidney disease. This medicine may not be suitable. It can also affect, or be affected by, other drugs. So let your doctor know all the other medicines you are taking.

Benefits of Dutsul T Tablet MR

In Treatment of Benign prostatic hyperplasia

When your prostate gland becomes enlarged it can cause urinary problems such as difficulty passing urine and a need to go to the toilet frequently or urgently. It can also cause urine flow to be slower. If not treated, there is a risk that your urine flow will be completely blocked. Dutsul T 0.4mg/0.5mg Tablet MR is a combination of two medicines: dutasteride and tamsulosin. Dutasteride reduces the size of your prostate by blocking the production of a hormone which causes it to grow. Tamsulosin works by relaxing muscles in the bladder and prostate. Together they can rapidly relieve the symptoms and make it easier for you to urinate. However, it may take up to 6 months to notice the full benefit. Take this medicine exactly as prescribed for maximum benefits.

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

How Dutsul T Tablet MR works

Dutsul T 0.4mg/0.5mg Tablet MR is a combination of two medicines: Tamsulosin and Dutasteride, which relieves the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Tamsulosin is an alpha-blocker. It works by relaxing the muscle around the bladder exit and prostate gland so as to allow easy passage of urine. Dutasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor which helps in shrinking the prostate gland by decreasing the level of the hormone which helps the prostate gland grow.

Q. Can the use of Dutsul T 0.4mg/0.5mg Tablet MR have any impact on my cataract surgery?

Use of Dutsul T 0.4mg/0.5mg Tablet MR can cause floppy eye syndrome. In this, the muscles of the iris become floppy and the pupil constricts unexpectedly during cataract surgery.

Inform your eye doctor (ophthalmologist) if you are taking this medicine or in case you have used this medicine in the last 9 months.

Q. Apart from taking medicines, what should I do to manage my prostate symptoms?

Simple lifestyle changes can help you manage your prostate symptoms better. Try to urinate when you first get the urge. However, take care not to strain or push while urinating. Avoid drinking fluids (especially alcohol, caffeine) a few hours before bedtime or going out. You should also avoid medicines which tend to worsen urinary symptoms like some over-the-counter medicines for cold and cough.
