What is Avodart used for?

  • Avodart 0.5mg capsules are used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate) to shrink the prostate and reduce the risk of urinary retention caused by restricted urine flow as the prostate becomes enlarged. Improving symptoms of BPH with Avodart 0.5mg capsules also reduces the need for surgery. As a side effect of its intended use, Avodart 0.5mg capsules are also used to treat male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) by increasing hair growth and preventing further hair loss from all areas of the scalp, including the front. This can reverse balding in men with mild to moderate hair loss but does not restore hair that has been lost for a long time. Avodart 0.5mg capsules are not used to treat hair loss in women.

How does Avodart work?

  • Avodart 0.5mg capsules contain Dutasteride 0.5 mg that specifically inhibits the action of both forms (type I and type II) of the enzyme 5?-reductase, which convert the male hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the androgen primarily responsible for development and growth of the prostate gland. DHT also causes benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate) and Avodart 0.5mg capsules reduce the levels of DHT in the blood, so that prostate growth is no longer stimulated in men with BPH allowing the enlarged prostate to shrink. DHT, which is also found in hair follicles, is the androgen responsible for hair loss, as it causes hair follicles in the scalp to gradually shrink producing smaller and thinner hairs, which eventually do not emerge from the follicle. Avodart 0.5 mg capsules reverse the balding process as it blocks the build-up of DHT in the hair follicles of the scalp, allowing the hair to grow normally.
