Avodart contains capsules 0.5mg contain Dutasteride, which is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate) and male pattern baldness, and works by inhibiting formation of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which causes enlarged prostate and hair loss.   

Avodart general information

What is Avodart used for?

Avodart capsules 0.5mg are used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate) to shrink the prostate and reduce the risk of urinary retention caused by restricted urine flow as the prostate becomes enlarged.  Improving symptoms of BPH with Avodart capsules 0.5mg also reduces the need for surgery.  Avodart capsules 0.5mg can be used as monotherapy or combination therapy with another medication (alpha blocker).  As a side effect of its intended use, Avodart capsules 0.5mg are also used to treat male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) by increasing hair growth and preventing further hair loss from all areas of the scalp, including the front.  This can reverse balding in men with mild to moderate hair loss but does not restore hair that has been lost for a long time.  Avodart capsules 0.5mg are not used to treat hair loss in women.

How does Avodart work?

Avodart capsules 0.5mg contains Dutasteride, a 5α-reductase inhibitor that specifically inhibits the action of both forms (type I and type II) of the enzyme 5α-reductase.  This enzyme converts the male hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the androgen primarily responsible for development and growth of the prostate gland.  DHT can also cause benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate).  Dutasteride in Avodart capsules 0.5mg reduces the levels of DHT in the blood, so that prostate growth is no longer stimulated in men with BPH allowing the enlarged prostate to shrink.  DHT, which is also found in hair follicles, is the androgen responsible for hair loss, as it causes hair follicles in the scalp to gradually shrink producing smaller and thinner hairs, which eventually do not emerge from the follicle.  Avodart 0.5 mg capsules reverses the balding process as it blocks the build-up of DHT in the hair follicles of the scalp, allowing the hair to grow normally. 

What does Avodart contain?

Avodart capsules 0.5mg contain the active ingredient dustasteride, a 5α-reductase inhibitor used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate) and reverse the balding process in male pattern hair loss.  They also contain: mono- and diglycerides of caprylic/capric acid, butylhydroxytoluene (E321).  The capsule shell contains: gelatine, glycerol, titanium dioxide (E171), iron oxide yellow (E172), triglycerides, medium chain lecithin (may contain soya oil).
