Avodart

Postby jimmy7 » Sun Nov 27, 2011 9:01 pm

Hi
I wonder if anybody knows if Avodart is available over the counter at pharmacy’s in Spain, it is used primarily for male patent baldness and also as a treatment for prostate cancer.

Not meant to be a daft answer but why don't you ask your local pharmacist?

Really could do without the smart alec answer, if I were in Spain at the moment I would naturally ask at my local pharmacy.
For you information I was asked by a friend if I knew Advodart could be obtained over the counter in Spain if so I would obtain it for him when I was next in Spain (January).
Your answer is why a lot of people stay on the fringes of this forum, I did assume if you didn't know then don't bother to answer.
Also for you information I received an answer from another much more friendly site.

Jimmy7, from your first post you did not make it clear you were not in Spain. Plus your location is Spain!
What a crime for anyone to assume otherwise.

Hi jimmy7
Sorry you thought my response was a "smart alec answer" but as your location says you are in Mijas Costa I assumed you were in Spain.
If you had said you were in the UK I might have gone into my lovcal pharmacology and enquired on your behalf.
Cheers

Avodart is NOT a treatment for prostate cancer. Avodart reduces the amount of PSA measured in your blood, so a PSA test will therefore be useless. Avodart is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia - BENIGN!

You have my genuine sympathy.
I work on an information line in UK and people tend to ask non specific questions without giving the whole story ,and then get really offended when you are not mystic meg or have a crystal ball in answering these requests.
never get a job dealing with the public or answer a question on any forum without realising that most people think you can read their minds.
If he thought your answer was a little rude ,he should look at his own sanctimonious" holy than thou"response !!!!!
