What are the differences between taking avodart and flomax?


Answer by  Liz59 (10966)

Floxmax blocks alpha and adovarts block 5 alphas. They are actually reducatase inhibitors that are designed to shrink an enlarged prostate glad. The floxmax also has additional functions by relaxing the muscles and not directly shrinking them.

Both are designed to counter the effects of an enlarged prostate. Avodart is a drug that is designed to actually shrink the prostate. Flomax, similar to Hytrin (a blood pressure med), increases the diameter of blood vessels in the prostate- and has the effect allowing urine to flow more easily.

Flomax is an alpha blocker where Avodart is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. Ultimatly Avodart's job is to shrink the prostate. Flomax is designed to relax the muscles instead of shrink them.
