Benefits of Urozosin D Tablet

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. Urozosin D 10mg/0.5mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines that reduces the size of your prostate by blocking the production of a hormone which causes it to grow.

However, it may take up to 6 months to notice the full benefits. Take this medicine exactly as prescribed for maximum benefits.
