Avodart 0.5 mg belongs to the group of drugs called alpha-reductase enzyme inhibitors and is used for men with benign prostate enlargement. Avodart 0.5 mg prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT plays a role in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
What is Avodart 0.5 mg used for?
Avodart 0.5 mg is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is a non-cancer-induced enlargement of the prostate gland surrounding the urethra (urinary-carrying canal) and located underneath the bladder. In men with benign prostatic enlargement, the prostate gland grows large enough to compress the urinary tract through it. When the urinary tract is compressed, it narrows and the normal flow of urine becomes difficult. Avodart 0.5 mg helps improve urine flow.
