Is the FDA even going to approve this drug? It's almost 2011.. and I'm sick of seeing how great Avodart is compared to Propecia, but not FDA approved yet. Does anybody have more information about its release?

Looks like GSK may be starting trials for Dutasteride 0.5mg as a licensed hair loss treatment.

there are too many people having imaginary side effects using Fin, so don't think they will approve DUT

Hardly cutting edge; this was an unnecessary bump considering this forum section, Pentarou.

This could lead to a 'new' product licenced as a hair loss treatment being made available from a Big Pharma corp, so it was worth mentioning.

Are you seriously waiting for it to be approved as a hairloss treatment? It's approved already for BPH. IT works for hairloss better than fin and talk to any pharmacist or doctor cause it works better for BPH than fin as well.

I agree.

Also, you never know, maybe if this drug gets approved for hair loss and sold as a hair loss treatment, it would be much cheaper. I can afford generic as it is, but getting it for even cheaper certainly won't hurt. One more thing, it would be nice to see more detailed clinical trials on a larger scale. The one available now is pretty informative but I mean a full 3 phase trial would nice.

I took 1mg of Avodart twice a week and 1mg of Propecia 5 times a week and within a month I had extremely puffy nipples. I immediately got off Avodart and stayed on Propecia and the puffy nips are still here 8 months later.....sucks.

One reason why it hasn't been approved probably :(

I would LOVE if Avo was cheaper. Costs 400+ every time I refill

Not sure it would necessarily get cheaper if approved for hair though....when Propecia came out it was actually more expensive than Proscar per mg. (Insurance not covering it was no help)

Then again Propecia was 1/5 the dose of Proscar. If Avo was approved for hair, maybe they would sell 1-3 mg capsules since it is much more dose dependent?

Yeah, I just don't see the benefit to GSK in getting avodart approved. Propecia was not a big success, what is the point in putting Avodart through? But who knows....

What I do is take branded Avodart and alternate it with generic Dutas....just to be safe in case my Dutas is fake.

I don't care about the price, I just wish it worked on me

I am sorry about that. How long are/were you on it? And what was your source? Also did you use it with anything else?

& yes I agree the price is nothing compared to the prospect of balding, but ideally I would be on 2.5 mg for maximum regrowth. However this would be close to $700 every month I believe....not that much less than what I pay for rent in my own place! Maybe someday, but right now forget about it

Forget about the ED and Sexual dysfunction, I'm worried about the Gingivitis.

Wish I'd read this study and taken the proper precautions. 9 months on dut and my gingivitis is out of control!

Dut/Avodart is soon going to be sold as an approved treatment in Japan under the name Zagallo. Will be interesting to see if GSK seek approval in other jurisdictions.

It was approved in South Korea circa 2010.
