Avodart Fatigue Causes and Reviews


Everyone feels tired now and then. Sometimes you may just want to stay in bed. But, after a good night's sleep, most people feel refreshed and ready to face a new day. If you continue to feel tired for weeks, it's time to see your doctor. He or she may be able to help you find out what's causing your Fatigue and recommend ways to relieve it.

Fatigue itself is not a disease. Medical problems, treatments, and personal habits can add to Fatigue. These include

  • Taking certain medicines, such as antidepressants, antihistamines, and medicines for nausea and pain
  • Having medical treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation
  • Recovering from major surgery
  • Anxiety, stress, or depression
  • Staying up too late
  • Drinking too much alcohol or too many caffeinated drinks
  • Pregnancy

One disorder that causes extreme Fatigue is chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFS). This Fatigue is not the kind of tired feeling that goes away after you rest. Instead, it lasts a long time and limits your ability to do ordinary daily activities.

Avodart is doing what it is supposed to do - shrink my prostate. Side effects include a good deal of Fatigue during day; also no semon. A side benefit is that I sleep better than I have in years!
Sat, 27 Nov 2010
Took Avodart for three weeks. Experianced terrible joint discomfort ie: ankels,knees,shoulders fingers ect. Also severe muscle ache and Fatigue. Contacted doctor and advised to stop taking.Now only 3 days off and feel totaly diffrent already.This is a nasty medicine at least for me. I realize I need something to help my condition and I'm willing to deal with some side affects but not this. I believe had I kept taking this it would of caused me some type of harm. Use with caution and listen to your body...............

I have been on Avodart for a few weeks and experienced extreme anxiety which caused my bp to go over 200 and ended up in the ER. I feel like I am in a fog. My neck and back were killing me with pain. I was Fatigued, depressed....this drug is poison to me!! I am off of it for 2 days now and NEVER again!
Thu, 30 Dec 2010
Frequent urge to urinate with abdominal cramping, coupled with extreme gas and digestive pain, bloating of abdomen, rectal discomfort... this after 3rd week of Avodart use... particularly severe after lying down for any extended time... Fatigue from not sleeping and anxiety from not knowing when the next urge will strike... muscles in lower abdomen continually stressed... Will stop taking Avodart for a few days to see if things stabilize... Can't function normally. Thanks for everyone who posted their experiences... it helped me feel more comfortable with my own situation and taking decisions.
