Thank you very much. Regards,

I have piles problem for which I am taking homeopathy medicine.

Tamdura (a combination of dutasteride and tamsulosin) is a standard treatment for symptomatic prostatic enlargement.  You did not indicate any symptoms so I can't say if it's appropriate or not.  

Side effects include issues with vision if you ever need cataract surgery and a drop in blood pressure.  A small number of patients can have some ED problems but this is uncommon.
