Avodart belongs to a group of medicines called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors which are used to treat men who have a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
BPH is a condition in which the prostate gland, which is near the bladder, becomes large enough to squeeze the urine tube making it more difficult for you to pass urine. When this happens you may have some or all of the following symptoms:
Prostate growth is caused by a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is present in blood. Avodart lowers the production of this hormone, leading to reduction in size of the prostate in most men. In order to treat your symptoms and control your BPH effectively, it is important that you continue to take Avodart for as long as your doctor prescribes it, even if you do not feel an immediate benefit. Some patients show early improvements in symptoms, but most men may need to take Avodart for up to 6 months to see if it helps. Avodart works best when taken long term.
This medicine is for men only and should not be taken or handled by women, children or adolescents.
You should NOT take Avodart if you:
If you have any type of liver disease, even if it is not serious, please discuss this with your doctor before you take Avodart.
Your semen may contain small amounts of the active ingredient in Avodart which could affect the normal development of a male baby.
Therefore, if your partner is or may be pregnant, you must avoid exposing her to your semen, for example by wearing a condom during sex.
If a pregnant woman comes into contact with the active ingredient in Avodart (for example by handling broken capsules or by unprotected sex), please consult a doctor.
Based on how dutasteride works, treatment with dutasteride would not be expected to interfere with the ability to drive or operate machinery.
These capsules contain glycerol, which can in high doses cause headache, stomach upset and diarrhoea. They also contain butylated hydroxytoluene, which can cause irritation to the eyes, skin and mucous membranes if punctured capsules are handled.
Avodart does not usually interfere with other medicines. However, you should tell your doctor if you are taking any medication including herbal remedies or dietary supplements you may have bought yourself.
You must take your Avodart capsules in the way your doctor has told you to. The label on your pack should tell you how many capsules to take and how often to take them. If the label doesn't say or if you are not sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
