I seem to be suffering BPH. Internet search suggests that medication Duodart - obtainable in Australia - or Jalyn are comparable. Are these items available in U.K. please
Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: No medications taken at present.

Cannot afford a Telephone call, thank you.

Duodart : contains Dutasteride,500 mcg
Tamsulosin Hydrochloride,400 mcg. Please search local pharmacy for alternate brand or the GSK tradename in UK for this. Perhaps it is Dutasteride, and Tamsulosin, sold separately.

I am looking for a Prescription Medicine available on NHS to recommend to my Local Doctor.

Duodart or Jalyn seem to cover the situation adequately, but do not appear to be with NHS
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I cannot get out at present due to a recent total hip replacement, hence my questions to you. Can you not provide a Brand name? I am aware of the Dutasteride and Tamsulosin aspects - and it is this that I am seeking. I would have thought that NHS would be on board with this.

Combodart at some places.

But many NHS clinics not dispense combination when two are separately available
