Avodart

Avodart is an effective medication that helps to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and other symptoms of an enlarged prostate, such as difficulties with urinating. Avodart blocks the urethra by reducing the size of the patient’s prostate, making it much easier to urinate. Also, the medicine reduces surgery’s risk later on.

Avodart The active ingredient of Avodart is dutasteride, which belongs to the drug class of 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. Avodart comes in capsules for oral use. The medication should be taken once a day without chewing or crushing the capsule. Food intake doesn’t affect the effectiveness of Avodart.

The treatment with Avodart usually takes from 3 to 6 months. The studies showed that prolonged use of Avodart reduces the average size of the prostate by more than 25%. Patients should take the drug regularly until the end of the treatment. The doctors don’t recommend taking Avodart during pregnancy because the active ingredient may interfere with fetal development.

Be sure to tell your doctor if you have an allergy to dutasteride or if you have allergic reactions to any other allergens. Your doctor should also know about all medications or vitamins you’re taking.


Cedra Pharmacy

Available dosages: 0.5 mg capsules
Price: from $0.76

What customers say:

They get to know you and seem to care for you. If any issues came up, they go out of their way and research every possibility until they find you help. They make you feel like you are the only one around; they’re patient, explain things well, and they’re always kind and courteous. They are quick and efficient, you never have to wait long, and although they can be that way, they still make you feel like you are the only one. All their attention and focus is completely on you. They make you feel valued.

I’m giving it five stars because Rhonda is amazing and always helpful. Cedra Pharmacy should have more consistency in ordering medication. Often, the pharmacists over promise and under deliver, which makes it an inconvenience for the patient. I’ve been very disappointed with how the lead pharmacist handles there day to day inventory operations when I need to drop off and pick up. At the time, I’m told they do not have slips to order the medication. I really hope to see a change in the level of customer service.


West Side Pharmacy

Available dosages: 0.5 mg capsules
Price: from $0.9

What customers say:

West Side Pharmacy is the best and absolutely the most reliable compounding pharmacy. Excellent, super friendly, and professional staff that always go above and beyond to help their patients. They have a very quick turnaround time. They call you as soon as they receive your prescription from your doctor, compound, and ship your medications the very same day. They have the lowest price and excellent clinical consultation service. I highly recommend it.

I have been using West Side Pharmacy for 5+ years. The staff is experienced and knowledgeable. Always there to help you. I have tried many other pharmacies. But, I have found Hometown to be the best. They never try to rush you. They are friendly, courteous, and available. This is the only pharmacy that when you call, the pharmacy actually picks up, and the pharmacist is always available to answer your questions. When you call other pharmacies, you’re put in a queue, have to answer numerous questions, and then put on hold forever. It’s such a pleasure to call this pharmacy, and someone from the pharmacy picks up right away. They even saved my life once by alerting one of my doctors about a black box warning and me if two medications are taken at the same time (may cause death). It is truly a HomeTown atmosphere. I highly recommend West Side Pharmacy.


NYU Pharmacy

Available dosages: 0.5 mg capsules
Price: from $0.88

What customers say:

I have been going to this pharmacy since 2008 when we moved to Kentucky. I have not had one issue in all that time. Some of the pharmacists have changed from year to year, but the service has not. There is a pharmacist there now named Joseph who is a young guy but understands how to deal with people and is also very informative. I will never switch places as they have won over my wife and me with consistency and professionalism. Thanks for all you do!

We purchase all of our prescriptions, medications, and vitamins from CVS. All employees at the pharmacy are very helpful and friendly. Many of them remember my name and greet me before I ask for help. In addition, they remember both my wife’s name and the name of our pet poodle. We purchase eye drops prescribed for our pet here. We also purchase healthcare products and some food items using discount coupons received with each purchase. We shop at NYU Pharmacy at least once a week.


Value Drugs

Available dosages: 0.5 mg capsules
Price: from $0.8

What customers say:

Value Drugs is the best of the best!! I can’t recall any pharmacy that remembers my name after one phone call. Jim goes above and beyond to ensure his customers/patients get the highest quality care and amazing customer service. He’s always ready to help us. You really don’t find many businesses anymore that care so much for the people they are taking care of. Value Drugs is #1 in quality customer service. THANK YOU, FOR ALL YOU DO!

I’m so grateful to have this pharmacy nearby! They have an easy-to-remember phone number, which seems silly, but I really appreciate it! They are friendly and never seem out when we need an emergency refill while we wait for a doctor’s approval. We’ve called to get flu shots and were able to walk in for them a few minutes later. The prices are good, and the staff is friendly. They stock a lot of local products in their gift area. Everything you want in a local drugstore!
