Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is dutasteride (Avodart) and how does it work?

Dutasteride (Avodart) is a synthetic 4-azasteroid compound that is often used either by itself or in conjunction with the medication tamsulosin (Flomax).

A dutasteride prescription works by blocking both type 1 and type 2 isoforms of the steroid alpha-reductase. This prevents testosterone from being converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) within the body. DHT can sometimes cause a man’s prostate to grow or become enlarged.

What are the uses for dutasteride (Avodart)?

Most commonly, if you receive a dutasteride prescription online from a Maple doctor, it’ll be to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This condition can affect men who are experiencing an enlarged prostate gland.

As men get older, they may experience a benign enlargement of the prostate, which can cause difficulty or problems while urinating. This is due to the tightening of the tube that transfers urine from the bladder to the urethra.

An Avodart prescription can help minimize these symptoms and reduce prostate enlargement.

How do you use dutasteride (Avodart)?

If you’ve received an Avodart prescription online from a Maple doctor, it’ll only be available as a liquid-filled capsule to be taken orally.

A dutasteride prescription can be taken with or without food, depending on recommendations from your doctor. Do not crush or chew the capsule when taking it. It should be swallowed whole.

Although it’s usually taken once daily, always follow instructions provided by your doctor regarding dosage and frequency of use. Never exceed your prescribed dosage. Take the medication regularly to get the most benefit from it.

You may need to take your Avodart prescription for 3 to 6 months before you notice an improvement in your symptoms.

What are the side effects and risks of dutasteride (Avodart)?

The most common side effects from a dutasteride prescription include:

  • Decreased interest in sexual activities
  • Decreased sexual desire or performance
  • Impotence
  • Inability to maintain an erection
  • Pain or swelling in breasts
  • Discharge from breasts
  • Abnormal ejaculation

Although rare, allergic or severe reactions could occur while taking this medication. If you’ve received a dutasteride prescription online and begin to experience the following, you should seek immediate medical attention:

  • Irregular or difficulty breathing
  • Irregular or racing heartbeat
  • Rash or hives
  • Itching or swelling (particularly of the mouth, throat, and face)
  • Severe dizziness
  • Dilated neck veins
  • Chest pain or discomfort

This medication can also increase men’s risks of developing high-grade prostate cancer. Talk to your doctor about possible risks before starting your dutasteride prescription.

Who should not take dutasteride (Avodart)?

This medication can be absorbed through the skin and can be harmful to unborn or breastfeeding children. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid handling an Avodart prescription. If pregnant women are contaminated by this medication, it can result in birth defects in male fetuses.

Men who are planning to donate blood should not do so until at least 6 months have passed since the last dosage of their dutasteride prescription was taken.

Moreover, dutasteride can impact the results of prostate specific antigen (PSA) tests used to help identify prostate cancer by up to 50%. Make sure to tell your doctor if you’re planning to have this test done and are taking an Avodart prescription, as it may skew your results.
