Dutasteride is a prescription medication that helps prevent hair loss, but what are the side effects?
Dutasteride, sold under the brand name Avodart, is a medication that treats hair loss by decreasing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (or “DHT”).
Dutasteride works in a similar way to the popular hair loss medication Finasteride by inhibiting the action of an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase.
This enzyme helps testosterone turn into DHT, which is the androgen responsible for pattern hair loss.
Multiple placebo-controlled clinical trials have shown that dutasteride can help to prevent hair loss and also promote hair regrowth.
Similarly to finasteride, dutasteride can cause side effects such as impotence, decreased libido, breast disorders, testicle pain or swelling, and ejaculation disorder.
In terms of long-term safety, dutasteride seems to be well tolerated.
One review of current data on dutasteride showed that over 4 years, dutasteride was relatively well-tolerated compared to placebo groups.
To mitigate side effects from dutasteride, not much can be done apart from lowering the dose or stopping dutasteride entirely.
If you want to avoid the potential side effects, non-invasive treatments like laser therapy could be a great alternative.
RedRestore’s laser cap uses a non-invasive light source treatment proven in multiple clinical trials to stimulate new hair growth by combating DHT and stimulating blood flow to your hair follicles.
