Avodart might not be covered under your health insurance. There are some locations where Avodart is not approved for use in preventing hair loss. As a result, your health insurance might not cover it. Avodart is primarily prescribed for a large prostate, so if you suffer from an enlarged prostate and hair loss (from male pattern baldness) it could be a great choice.
For those who cannot obtain Avodart through their health insurance, the costs can be overwhelming. Generic Avodart is a good alternative and much cheaper. But as always, check with your doctor!
