Avodart Anaemia Causes and Reviews

If you have anemia, your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body. The most common cause of anemia is not having enough iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives the red color to blood. It carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.

Anemia has three main causes: blood loss, lack of red blood cell production, and high rates of red blood cell destruction.

Conditions that may lead to anemia include

  • Heavy periods
  • Pregnancy
  • Ulcers
  • Colon polyps or colon cancer
  • Inherited disorders
  • A diet that does not have enough iron, folic acid or vitamin B12
  • Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, or cancer
  • Aplastic anemia, a condition that can be inherited or acquired
  • G6PD deficiency, a metabolic disorder

Anemia can make you feel tired, cold, dizzy, and irritable. You may be short of breath or have a headache.

Your doctor will diagnose anemia with a physical exam and blood tests. Treatment depends on the kind of anemia you have.

Avodart Anaemia Reviews

Fri, 18 May 2012

I think that its a trade off. We all want to be able to urinate easily. I think that the combination of Avodart and uroxatral probably accomplishes this. Uroxatral is almost immediate and I hope Avodart will do what its suppose to do (shrink prostate)

I'm a 63 year old and have been on Avodart and harnal(tamsulosin) for around 3 years.What bothers me now is the constant fatigue , light headedness, an unsteady walking gait, knee pain,poor vision and not to mention zero libido. I'm thinking of stopping Avodart to see whether these problems will go away.

Thu, 12 Apr 2012

I took Avodart for a a week and starting noticing severe anxiety. When I did a search on the Internet, I discovered so many comments from people with the same problem. I stopped taking it immediately because it freaked me out. I was taking if for hair loss and I noticed results quickly, so I'm disappointed in not being able to continue with treatment.

Sat, 13 Aug 2011

husband has been taking Avodart for 3 years. Developed a tightness in lungs, dry, non-productive cough, lungs feel a burning sensation. Thorough heart echo tests done, stress test. chest x-ray, mri, blood work, pulmonary function tests all passed. Meeting with pulmonary specialist. Atrial fib, so taking spiriva to see if this helps. 68 years, active, plays raquetball frequently. Read your statement, samy, and wonder if Avodart is behind this. Maybe his body has had enough of this drug? Hasn't smoked for 20 years. What did you decide to do?

Thu, 13 Oct 2011

No samy, my problems with Avodart are joint pain and change in walking gait.
