Dutaprost tabs are a medication used in dermatology to treat male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). The tablets contain the active ingredient dutasteride, which works by blocking the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that can contribute to hair loss in men.
Dutaprost tabs can help to slow down hair loss and promote hair regrowth in men with androgenetic alopecia. By blocking the production of DHT, it can reduce the damage to hair follicles and encourage the growth of new hair.
Each Dutaprost tablet contains 0.5mg of dutasteride, as the active ingredient. Other inactive ingredients include microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch, sodium starch glycolate, and magnesium stearate.
Dutaprost tabs are for use by men only and should not be taken by women or children. Pregnant women or women who may become pregnant should avoid handling the medication as it can be absorbed through the skin and harm an unborn baby. Dutaprost should also not be taken by men with liver disease or a history of allergic reactions to the medication.
Dutaprost tabs are taken orally, with or without food, once daily. The tablets should be swallowed whole and not crushed or chewed. It may take up to 3 months or more before any benefit from the medication is seen. Continuation of treatment is recommended to sustain benefits.
