About Dutasteride

Understanding Dutasteride

Dutasteride is an FDA-approved medication that is primarily used to treat enlarged non-cancerous prostates in men. It is commonly known under the brand name Avodart and helps to improve the flow of urine and can reduce the need for prostate surgery at a later stage.

Many men without prostate problems find it effective in treating scalp hair loss, and as a result its use in this area has grown in popularity. This is also due to better accessibility, since you can buy dutasteride tablets online at much cheaper prices than shopping at a regular pharmacy.

Hair Loss In Men

Millions of men suffer from hair loss across the world. Scalp hair loss is also associated with itchiness and tingling, along with patches of baldness. This is thought to occur when the immune system attacks healthy hair follicles. Although expected to be more prevalent in older men, it can affect men of varying ages from their late twenties upwards. Usually treatment options are not pursued and many men with hair loss are either sceptical or unaware of effective remedies. This is where dutasteride has become a go to solution after its success in treating male pattern baldness.

How to Take Dutasteride 0.5 mg

The normal dosage is one 0.5 mg tablet taken once a day. It is not necessary to eat before taking this medication and the tablet is best swallowed whole with a glass of water. It may cause a burning sensation in the throat and mouth if chewed or broken so avoid this.

Side Effects Associated with Dutasteride

Side effects may occur in a small percentage of users. They are usually mild and can be minimised by following the proper dose and precautions. More common side effects one could experience when choosing to buy Avodart tablets and using them for treatment of hair loss, could include:

  • Difficulty achieving an erection
