How do I find the names of drug substitutes for name brands like Avodart to shrink the prostate?


Answer by  Tiramysu (117)

While many unreputable internet drug stores claim to have generic Avodart, a patent prevents it from being sold in the US until 2013.

The best source of information on any prescription medication is your pharmacist. Avodart is sold under the generic name of Dutasteride. Your physician can advise you regarding substitutes for Avodart.

The pharmacist in your local drug store is an excellent resource and has the training to be able to tell you if there is a generic drug equivalent to Avodart available at a reduced cost, and what it is. You can ask your doctor to prescribe the generic version.

There are many websites and books on name brands of drugs. The PDR, or Physicisns Desk Reference is the publication used by the medical community. Many pharmacies such as Walgreens, have a website that will give you information. You can 'google' the word medicene and many sites will come up. An old fashioned method is to simply call your pharmicist!
