Tamsulosin works as a perfect alpha anti-androgen and blocks the functionality by binding with the androgenic receptors. This causes relaxation in smooth muscle and therefore less resistance to urinary flow Androgens such as testosterone are natural male sex hormones.
Dutasteride works as a competitive inhibitor of the 0.5-alpha-reductase. This enzyme converts testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Change of testosterone to DHT done by 0.5-alpha-reductase is necessary for prostatic hyperplasia development, thus the Dutasteride drug blocks the conversion.
