Have a look at generic Avodart ( Dutasteride ), it contains exactly the same ingredients as branded Avodart and works in exactly the same way. The only difference is the price. Big savings for you!
Avodart was originally created to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BHP), which is enlargement of the prostate. It Is now also widely used as a treatment for hair loss in men.
It is estimated that around half of all men will suffer from Male Pattern Baldness ( MPB ).
While it is not possible to completely eliminate baldness, there are drugs, such as Avodart ( Dutasteride ), which can help to reverse some of the signs of male pattern hair loss. As with any progressive condition, the sooner you treat it, the more effective the treatment.
Dutasteride is the active ingredient in the popular hair loss treatment, Avodart, both branded and generic. Dutasteride is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor.
There are two types of 5-alpha reductase treatments, the other popular hair loss treatment, Finasteride, inhibits type II 5-alpha reductase. Avodart inhibits both types and is much more potent than Finasteride. Dutasteride is therefore an effective treatment for Male Pattern Baldness ( MPB ) in men who have tried Finasteride / Propecia with little, or diminishing, success.
How long does Avodart take to work?
Usually, patients will need to take Avodart for around six months for visible improvements in hair thickness.
A recent study has shown that patients taking dutasteride (or finasteride) have a lower overall risk of low-grade prostate cancer but a higher risk of more serious (high-grade) prostate cancer. If you have any symptoms such as blood in the urine or difficultly urinating (passing water) you should contact your doctor for advice.
