Is Dutasteride a Generic Avodart?
No. Dutasteride is the active ingredient in Avodart, not a generic version of the drug. Although people often refer to a drug's active ingredient as its "generic name," the generic name of a drug is different than a generic version of it. In order for there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off-patent, and another company (besides the original manufacturer) must have made the product.
