Avodart (Dutasteride) belongs to a class of medications known as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. It is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with an enlarged prostate. BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that usually occurs in men after the age of 50. This medication works to reduce the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that causes enlargement of the prostate gland. Dustasteride relieves symptoms of BPH by reducing the size of the prostate and improving the flow of urine. Dutasteride reduces the likelihood of prostate surgery for men with BPH. The recommended dose of Dutasteride is 0.5mg once daily.
We currently have the brand from Turkey and the generic from India. Avodart comes in capsule form available in 0.5 mg.
