What is Duprost used for?

  • Duprost capsules 0.5mg are used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is an enlarged prostate gland. 
  • Duprost capsules 0.5mg help to shrink the prostate and reduce the risk of urinary retention caused by restricted urine flow as the prostate gland becomes enlarged and presses against the urethra (urine outlet tube from the bladder), which helps urine to flow more easily, prevents urine backlog in the bladder and restores bladder control.
  • This relieves symptoms like need for frequent urination, inability to empty the bladder, strain and difficulty passing urine.
  • The improved urine flow and reduction in symptoms may reduce the need for surgery due to moderate to severe symptoms of BHP. As a side effect of its intended use, Duprost 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.  Duprost capsules 0.5mg are not used to treat hair loss in women.


How does Duprost work?

  • Duprost 0.5mg capsules contain 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) in the skin and the liver.
  • DHT is 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.
  • Duprost 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. 
  • Duprost capsules 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.
