Dutasteride

Dutasteride is an orally taken drug that falls into the drug class of 5a-reductase inhibitors and has the chemical formula of C27H30F6N2O2. The drug is taken orally and gained medical approval in the USA in 2001. There are no over one million prescriptions of the drug in America annually. The medicine is only available to adults.

The drug is usually prescribed in a 0.5 mg capsule and can improve a male’s urinary flow, primarily when the issues are caused by an enlarged prostate. Aside from preventing acute urinary retention, it may prevent the need for prostate surgery. The medicine is taken daily and used as a long-term treatment with courses regularly lasting for a minimum of six months, although many patients are on dutasteride for several years.

Avodart is the best-known branded version of the drug, but dutasteride is available as a generic prescription drug too. It is only available as a capsule.

What is Dutasteride Prescribed For?

Dutasteride is primarily used to treat conditions linked to an enlarged prostate. Most commonly, it manages symptoms of benign prostate enlargement, also known as BPH, including changes to toiletry habits. It may be used as a sole treatment or in combination with tamsulosin. In some cases, it can also reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer, although there are risks linked to an aggressive form of cancer, which is why it must not be taken without a doctor’s prescription.

The drug may also be prescribed to help prevent male balding and scalp hair loss or excessive hair growth, as well as for hormonal treatment in transgender women. Its use for hair loss has become increasingly common in recent times.

How Does Dutasteride Work?

The primary function of dutasteride is to inhibit the growth of a hormone known as dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, by stopping testosterone conversions. It is the same function offered by other 5a-reductase inhibitors and will allow the enlarged prostate to shrink back to its normal size. In turn, this relieves the pinching pressure from the urinary tract as well as other symptoms.

It additionally prevents the formation of neurosteroid metabolites. Dutasteride does not have severe interactions with other drugs but can have moderate interactions with cimetidine, ketoconazole, rifabutin, and more. The inhibition of DHT also prevents hair loss and fills in balding spots.

What Are The Side Effects of Dutasteride?

Taking dutasteride can increase the risk of high grade prostate cancer or mask the early signs of it, but this only impacts a small section of patients and is something a doctor will consider before prescribing the medication. While dutasteride is generally considered to be a safe drug with very few side effects, the following issues have a potential to surface;

  • Reduced sex drive,
  • Reduced sperm production during ejaculation,
  • Impotence,
  • Pain in the testicles,
  • Breast growth or tenderness,
  • Dizziness.

While rare, it has been reported that cardiac arrest can occur as a result of taking Dutasteride. If you experience any symptoms, you should seek medical help.

Frequently asked questions

  • An online doctor can talk you through the symptoms of BPH and may be able to prescribe dutasteride as a result. If a prostate exam is required, though, a family doctor will be the best solution. However, hair loss treatments can be supported by a dutasteride prescription online following a video consultation.

  • Dutasteride is a capsule that should be taken daily for the duration of the treatment, whether it’s for hair loss or prostate issues. You can take the tablet with water but not food and it should be swallowed and not chewed. Ideally, patients should take it at the same time each day.

  • When taking dutasteride, it is important to follow the instructions given to you by the doctor, which will also be present in the accompanying leaflet. You should also avoid smoking tobacco or drinking alcohol around dutasteride usage as it can cause additional chemical interactions. It can be absorbed through the skin, so pregnant women and breastfeeding women should never touch the capsules.

  • Individuals can order dutasteride from brick-and-mortar pharmacies and online pharmacies, but only with a prescription that will be matched to the intended purpose as well as individual circumstances. When long-term dutasteride treatments are required, refills may be ordered without requiring a new prescription.

  • Six months is the most common treatment duration for hair loss. However, a review of the dutasteride effects may see your doctor change this timespan. 

  • To get an online prescription for Dutasteride you will have to set up an account with us, download the DrHouse app and make an on-demand visit with one of our board-certified clinicians.

  • Our clinicians are able to prescribe up to a 90-day prescription for any previously prescribed medications that are not classified as controlled substances. They use their medical judgement to determine whether to prescribe and the duration. They will have the prescription sent to the pharmacy of your choice.
