Avodart (dutasteride) is an orally administered medication that is indicated for the treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men. Abodart is used to ameliorate symptoms of an enlarged prostate, such as frequent urination, urinary urgency, difficulty initiating urination, and a weak urinary stream. Avodart may reduce the risk of acute urinary retention (AUR) and the need for BPH-related surgery. 

Avodart is classified as a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor, which functions by preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the primary androgen that is responsible for the initial development and enlargement of prostate glands. This medication is available in 0.5 mg soft gelatin capsules.

To ensure the medication’s maximum efficacy, take it regularly. To aid in remembering, take it at the same time each day. 

Due to the potential for this drug to be absorbed through the skin and cause harm to an unborn baby, pregnant women or those who may become pregnant should not handle this medication.
