What is Dutasteride used for?
Avodart is used in men to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia-BPH). Avodart works by reducing the size of the enlarged prostate. Dutasteride helps relieve BPH symptoms such as weak urine stream, difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, and the need to urgently or frequently urinate. Avodart can also reduce the need for surgical intervention to treat BPH. Avodart is not approved for the treatment or prevention of prostate cancer and can slightly increase your chances of developing a serious form of prostate cancer.
