I’m currently taking one 0.5 mg capsule of Avodart for hair loss daily. Visiting a hair transplant doctor the other day he said I could take it once a week and have the same results, as avodart stays in ones system for several weeks. What is your advice? I’m a 58 year old male. Thanks
My advice is speak to your doctor. If you were prescribed the medication, discuss any questions you may have with the doctor that prescribed it to you.
I do not advocate the use or usually recommend Avodart (dutasteride) for treating hair loss. I have prescribed it in select cases, but Avodart does have a long half life and many doctors have many different opinions on how to take the medication. There isn’t any defined dosage for it as a hair loss treatment.
