drugs compete with Proscar (finasteride) for benign prostatic hyperplasia

You will eventually see drugs compete with Proscar (finasteride) for benign prostatic hyperplasia.

For example, Avodart (dutasteride) is under consideration by Health Canada. It's similar to Proscar, but it blocks both types of 5 alpha-reductase. Proscar selectively blocks only type 2.

By blocking both type 1 and type 2, Avodart appears to lower dihydrotestosterone levels more than Proscar.
