What is Avodart?
Avodart (dutasteride) inhibits enzymes that transform testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Avodart is used to prevent the growth of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is partially caused by increased sensitivity to DHT. By regularly using this drug, you may prevent further growth of your prostate, increase urinary flow, and reduce the chance of going through prostate surgery later in life. What are the indications for using generic Avodart? In monotherapy, Avodart is indicated to lessen the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and to decrease the chance of acute urinary retention and the need for BPH-related surgery.
What is the dosage of generic Avodart?
Capsules of Avodart should not be chewed or opened, since the content of the capsules may result in irritation of the mouth and throat. Recommended dosage of Avodart is 1 capsule per day. To ensure that Avodart is not causing any side effects, you should regularly perform blood tests. Moreover, your doctor will also test for prostate specific antigen to ensure that you don’t develop prostate cancer.
What are the contraindications for using generic Avodart?
Avodart shouldn’t be used or handled by women and children, since its active ingredient can be absorbed through the skin. If a pregnant woman is exposed to Avodart, it may result in birth defects. Do not take Avodart if its capsule was damaged, since this may result in mouth and throat irritation. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you are allergic to dutasteride or finasteride (which is a similar medicine). Do not donate blood if you’re taking Avodart, since your blood may cause birth defects if given to a pregnant woman.
What are the adverse effects of generic Avodart?
When taking Avodart, contact your doctor immediately if you notice chest pain, extreme fatigue, dilated neck veins, irregular heartbeat and breathing, shortness of breath and wheezing, swelling of face and extremities, and weight gain. Some side effects, however, do not require for you to seek medical attention. They usually go away without any treatment when your body adjusts to the medicine. These side effects include abnormal ejaculation, decreased sexual performance and interest in sexual intercourse, impotence, as well as pain, swelling, soreness, or discharge from breasts.
