Silodosin + Dutasteride is a combination of two medicines: Silodosin + Dutasteride1 and Silodosin + Dutasteride2, which relieves the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Silodosin + Dutasteride1 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. Silodosin + Dutasteride2 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.
