Medical Description

Veltam Plus tablets are used to treat Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) in men, a condition where the prostate gland becomes enlarged. These tablets combine two active ingredients, tamsulosin and dutasteride, to alleviate BPH symptoms such as difficulty urinating, frequent urination, increased nighttime urination and inability to empty the bladder. Tamsulosin works by relaxing smooth muscles and improving urine flow, while dutasteride reduces the size of the prostate gland.

Tamsulosin and dutasteride are the active ingredients in the medications Urimax D tablet, Flodart Plus tablet, Tamdura capsule, Flokind D tablet and Dutas T Plus tablet. Take Veltam Plus as advised by your doctor and in doses and duration as prescribed. This medicine is not meant to be used for the treatment of prostate cancer.

Prior to taking Veltam Plus tablet, notify your doctor about any liver or kidney issues. Pregnant women and children must refrain from handling the leaking medicine as it can be absorbed through the skin and can impact the normal development of a male baby (especially within the first 16 weeks of pregnancy). Fertile men should use condoms during sexual intercourse to avoid conception. This medication is not suitable for children and adolescents under 18 years old. Caution is advised in elderly patients over 65 years of age.
