Product Details

Description:

Chemical Name DUTASTERIDE (doo-TAS-teer-ide)

AVODART is used to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlargement of the prostate gland. It helps to reduce the risk of urinary blockage and the need for prostate surgery. It may also be used along with other medicines such as FLOMAX (tamsulosin). AVODART works by lowering levels of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is a major cause of prostate growth. Lowering DHT leads to shrinkage of the enlarged prostate gland.

Note: this medication should not be used for women or children.

Cautions:

Before using AVODART, patients should be aware of the following:

  • Using AVODART may increase your risk of developing prostate cancer
  • This medication should not be used by women or children
  • Men being treated with AVODART should not donate blood until at least 6 months have passed following their last dose
Some medical conditions may interact with AVODART. Tell your doctor if you have any medical conditions, including:
  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances
  • if you have liver disease, heart problems (eg, heart failure), prostate cancer, urinary tract disease, or problems urinating
This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your doctor if AVODART may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your doctor before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine

Side Effects:

All medications may cause side effects, but usually patients have no, or minor, side effects. Common side effects of AVODART may include:

  • Inability to have or maintain an erection
  • Decrease in sex drive
  • Difficulty ejaculation
  • Breast tenderness or enlargement
Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of these severe side effects of severe allergic reactions. Symptoms include rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, and/or swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness.

Excellent service
I was full of concerns about ordering from outside our country, especially in providing bank info, but I have experienced excellent service, and no problems in my first year of ordering from Canada Pharmacy. Many thanks to your Account Service Specialists in following through with correcting an error I made. Thank-you both!

Off label prescription
This is prescribed for hair thinning so it's off-label use. Hard to evaluate.

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
