Silofast D 8mg New Strip Of 10 Tablets Description

Silofast D8 tablet is used to manage benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia). It is a common condition in older men with an enlargement of the prostate gland. The

prostate gland is a part of the male reproductive system and is located below the bladder. Common symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy include incomplete emptying of the bladder, trouble passing urine, frequent need to pass urine, and a weak urine flow. Silofast D8 tablet contains a combination of silodosin and dutasteride as its main components. It works by relaxing the bladder muscles and shrinking the enlarged prostate, which helps to relieve the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy. This medicine is not meant to be used to treat prostate cancer. Take Silofast D8 tablet in the exact dose and duration as prescribed. Do not stop taking this medicine on your own. Before starting treatment with this medicine, inform the doctor about your detailed medical history.
