DescriptionDosageSide EffectsPhotos
Dutasteride, sold under the brand name Dutas among others, is a medication used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) and androgenetic alopecia (pattern hair loss).

Dutasteride prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is involved in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Dutasteride is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with an enlarged prostate. It helps improve urinary flow and may also reduce your need for prostate surgery later on.

Dutas is sometimes given with another medication called tamsulosin (Flomax). Be sure to read the medication guide or patient instructions provided with each of your medications.

Dutas may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

DOSAGE: The recommended dose of dutasteride is 0.5 mg once daily; do not chew the medication and do not administer to pediatric patients.

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Avodart: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Less serious side effects may include:

  • decreased libido (sex drive);
  • decreased amount of semen released during sex;
  • impotence (trouble getting or keeping an erection); or
  • breast tenderness or enlargement.
