Avodart is administered to males with urinary symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), including urinary incontinence, decreased urine flow, waking up in the middle of the night to urinate, and hesitating before peeing. Because of its effects on prostate size, urine retention caused by a slow urinary system owing to a big prostate is decreased.
Avodart's main component, dutasteride, inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the androgen primarily responsible for the development and enlargement of the prostate gland. This enzyme, 5-alpha-reductase, is available in type I and type II forms.
Once a day, with or without food, Avodart should be taken with a full glass of water. Please avoid from opening or eating it, since doing so may hurt your mouth or throat. Avodart may alleviate the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), but it may take up to six months for the prostate to considerably decrease. If you cease Avodart medication during this period, the prostate may restart its development.
Temporary impotence and decreased libido are the most often reported side effects of Avodart. Less frequent adverse effects include itchy rashes, sensitive breasts, and breast enlargement (gynecomastia). If you have severe or chronic side effects, it is imperative that you consult your doctor.
