Introduction to Tamgress D Tablet

Tamgress D Tablet is a combination medication containing Tamsulosin and Dutasteride. It treats benign prostatic hyperplasia in men (enlarged prostate). Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland which can lead to urinary problems such as difficulty in passing urine, frequent or urgent need to urinate, and urinary dribbling. 

It is not recommended for adolescents and children under the age of 18. You should not take this medicine if you are allergic to soya, peanuts, or any ingredients or if angioedema (swelling due to an allergic reaction) occurs after using some drugs. Inform your physician if you have a serious liver infection, suffer from dizziness, or already have malaise. At the same time, you urinate or after urinating (micturition syncope).

If you are planning to undergo cataract or glaucoma surgery, please inform your doctor that you are taking or have recently taken Tamgress D Tablet. Caution should be paid if you have severely impaired renal function, as there is insufficient data from clinical studies about patients with severe renal impairment. In case of dizziness, it is necessary to sit down or lay down until the disappearance of these signs. Report to your physician if there is a drop in blood pressure on long-term use.
