Rapaflo (silodosin) belongs to a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. Rapaflo helps relax the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.
Rapaflo is used to improve urination in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).
Avodart (dutasteride) prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is involved in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Avodart is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with an enlarged prostate. Dutasteride helps improve urinary flow and may also reduce your need for prostate surgery later on.
