Representing Victims of Negligence for More Than 25 Years

In 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning that linked Avodart to high-grade prostate cancer tumors. One year later, Health Canada issued a similar advisory. These warnings are not based on casual studies or mere speculation. Their studies revealed clinical evidence supporting the possibility of a direct link between use of Avodart and prostate cancer.

Avodart Side Effects

Doctors prescribe Avodart (dutasteride) to treat men with enlarged prostates. Other 5-alpha reductase inhibitors in the same family include Proscar, Propecia and Jalyn. While men taking Avodart report good results, Avodart users who do not contract prostate cancer can suffer other adverse effects such as loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, or enlarged or painful breasts.
