Avodart Pruritus Causes and Reviews


What is itching?

Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin. Sometimes it can feel like pain, but it is different. Often, you feel itchy in one area in your body, but sometimes you may feel itching all over. Along with the itching, you may also have a rash or hives.

What causes itching?

Itching is a symptom of many health conditions. Some common causes are

  • Allergic reactions to food, insect bites, pollen, and medicines
  • Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin
  • Irritating chemicals, cosmetics, and other substances
  • Parasites such as pinworms, scabies, head and body lice
  • Pregnancy
  • Liver, kidney, or thyroid diseases
  • Certain cancers or cancer treatments
  • Diseases that can affect the nervous system, such as diabetes and shingles
What are the treatments for itching?

Most itching is not serious. To feel better, you could try

  • Applying cold compresses
  • Using moisturizing lotions
  • Taking lukewarm or oatmeal baths
  • Using over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines
  • Avoiding scratching, wearing irritating fabrics, and exposure to high heat and humidity

Contact your health care provider if your itching is severe, does not go away after a few weeks, or does not have an apparent cause. You may need other treatments, such as medicines or light therapy. If you have an underlying disease that is causing the itching, treating that disease may help.


Avodart Pruritus 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)

Fri, 18 May 2012

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.

night sweats

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.
