Trouble going? AVODART® can help improve urinary symptoms.

For men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and an enlarged prostate, AVODART® can help treat their symptoms. Over time, AVODART® can shrink the prostate. If left untreated, the prostate may continue to grow, and in some men lead to worsening urinary symptoms.


Benefits of AVODART® can include:

  • Improvement of urinary symptoms
  • Shrinking the size of the prostate over time
  • Reducing the risk of developing acute urinary retention (AUR), the sudden inability to urinate
  • Reducing the risk of needing surgery for an enlarged prostate

If you have BPH, talk to your doctor about improving your symptoms and shrinking your prostate and ask if AVODART® is right for you.

Possible Side-Effects

  • The most common adverse reactions reported in subjects receiving AVODART® were 
    • impotence
    • decreased libido
    • breast disorders (including breast enlargement and tenderness)

This is not a full list of side-effects, and you should talk to your doctor before taking AVODART® alone or with other medications.
