Dutagen general information

What is Dutagen used for?

Dutagen capsules 0.5mg are used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate) to shrink the prostate and reduce the risk of urinary retention caused by restricted urine flow as the prostate gland becomes enlarged. Improving symptoms of BPH with Dutagen capsules 0.5mg also reduces the need for surgery. As a side effect of its intended use, Dutagen capsules 0.5mg are also used to treat male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) by increasing hair growth and preventing further hair loss from all areas of the scalp, including the front. This can reverse balding in men with mild to moderate hair loss but does not restore hair that has been lost for a long time. Dutagen 0.5mg capsules are not used to treat hair loss in women.

How does Dutagen work?

Dutagen 0.5mg capsules contains dutasteride that specifically inhibits the action of both forms (type I and type II) of the enzyme 5α-reductase, that convert the male hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the androgen primarily responsible for development and growth of the prostate gland. DHT also causes benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is when the prostate becomes enlarged. Dutagen capsules 0.5mg reduce the levels of DHT in the blood, so that prostate growth is no longer stimulated in men with BPH allowing the enlarged prostate to shrink. DHT, which is also found in hair follicles, is the androgen responsible for hair loss, as it causes hair follicles in the scalp to gradually shrink producing smaller and thinner hairs, which eventually do not emerge from the follicle. Dutagen 0.5 mg reverses the balding process as it blocks the build up of DHT in the hair follicles of the scalp, allowing the hair to grow normally.
