In brief: Shrinks the prostate

Avodart (dutasteride) blocks the conversion of testosterone to its more potent form (dihydrotestosterone).
The medication leads to a reduction in prostate size and prevents further growth while it is being taken. One should remember to double the psa blood test level once a patient has been taking Avodart (dutasteride) for at least 6 months.
