Dutasteride 0.5mg (Avodart)
Dutasteride is a stronger form of finasteride. It’s not officially approved to treat hair loss, but it’s been shown to be even more effective at regrowing hair. Learn more about it here.

What our patients have to say
Essential Clinic made a sometimes difficult process, easy. I was able to consult online with a doctor who understands hair loss. My prescription was ready for pick up the next business day.
I would have rated it 5 but because of the long window (3 hours), I gave it a 4. Other than that, it was excellent.
Filled out the questions and attached photos of my hairline and crown. Received a message by email from a doctor and they gave me a prescription for 5mg finasteride the next day and was ready to pick up at the nearest pharmacy.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does hair medication work?
Both finasteride and dutasteride work by blocking the conversion of testosterone into DHT, a hormone that causes male pattern baldness. You’ll notice less hair fall and thicker hair within 3-6 months of starting treatment, and increased hair growth with continued use.
Are these treatments effective?
In short, yes, but as with all medicines, they don’t work for everyone. DHT blockers regrow hair in 65% of patients and stops further hair loss in most other patients. If you stop taking the medication, it stops working.
Does the consult cost include price of prescription?
No. Prescription pricing is set by the pharmacies and payable on pick up. Your price also depends on any drug insurance coverage you may have.
How much does the medication cost?
Finasteride 1mg ranges between $30-$50/month, or $6/month if you quarter 5mg tablets. Dutasteride ranges between $10-$20/month.
Is the fee covered by employee health insurance plans?
What is your refund policy?
Your fee will be automatically refunded if you are declined a prescription.
