HOW FLOKIND D TABLET WORKS

Flokind D 0.4mg/0.5mg Tablet 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 by decreasing the level of the hormone which helps the prostate gland grow.
