Suggest medication for prostate enlargement

Hello Doctor, I am a 70 year old male living in India. I have 3 semi solid stools a day, I get up 3 times in the night to pass urine. My prostrate is enlarged and it's weight is 36. I have been prescribed Dutasterine and Tamsulosine Hcl.
Please suggest what medication can help to return to normal. Thanks. P.V.Rajagopal
