Generic Avodart

Generic Avodart is a prescription medication that's used to treat the male condition of "enlarged prostate" - BPH (Benign prostatic hyperplasia).  The medicine comes in the form of capsules and is taken orally one time a day.   How does generic Avodart (dutasteride 0.5mg) work?   Active ingredient of generic Avodart - dutasteride belongs to a group of 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. 5-alpha-reductase is the enzyme which is necessary for conversion of testosterone into its more active from form 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (5-DHT). 5-DHT plays a key role in the development of male pattern blindness and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. The suppression of dihydrotestosterone formation is characterized by a decrease in prostate gland size, increase in maximum urine flow rate and relieving the symptoms urinary tract obstruction. The symptoms of BPH include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Feeling the urgency for urination
  • Incomplete emptying of bladder
  • Frequent urination during the night
  • Weak urine stream
  • Intermittent starts and stops in urine flow

 Men who used Avodart saw significant improvement in BPH symptoms compared to those men who did not use it. Some patients saw immediate improvements while others saw improvements within long period of time.
