Avodart (also known as Dutasteride) by Fortune, it’s a drug used to treat benign enlargement of the prostate gland. It is an inhibitor of the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. Reductase inhibitors prevent the conversion of testosterone to its more androgenic derivative dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Since androgens are responsible for a number of physiological disorders in men, such as alopecia and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), suppression of DHT is extremely important in their treatment, and Avodart is an extremely powerful weapon in this regard.
Effects of Dutasteride
Avodart almost completely eliminates oily skin and acne, and significantly reduces hair loss even in men who are genetically predisposed to baldness.
However, it should be clarified that the drug does not completely eliminate baldness and acne, as testosterone continues to act as a steroid, although its conversion into the more powerful dihydrotestosterone is blocked.
How to take Avodart pills
The recommended dose of Avodart is 1 capsule per day (0.5 mg), since antiandrogenic effects are achieved even at 0.25 mg per day. For best results in suppressing side effects in testosterone, methyltestosterone and Halotestin cycles, it is recommended to combine Dutasteride with the anti-oestrogens Tamoxifen or Clomid (best option).
Dutasteride side effects
Side effects of Avodart associated with a dramatic decrease in DHT levels are loss of strength during weight bearing exercises, decreased libido, and in rare cases (1.1%) gynecomastia and other estrogenic side effects may occur as non-aromatizable dihydrotestosterone acts as a powerful anti-estrogen, competing with other substrates such as testosterone, which is converted into estrogen by aromatase action. In some cases, there may be some neutralisation of the effects of the steroid cycle on muscle mass gain.
