livinthedream,

I don't want to involve myself too deeply here, but vincehair did answer your question. He purchases his Finasterdie at Sam's Club for a very affordable price. I understand you may not have a membership there, but you can get one or just call around the pharmacies in your area and ask about the cost for generic Proscar.

Nobody here will advocate you purchasing Finasteride powder off the internet and trying to mix up your own Propecia like you're Bill Nye the Science Guy.

You are involved since you're throwing in your opinion.
My original question was...


All I'm asking is for someone to
a. tell me a credible site to order from
b. tell me if this stuff is legit
c. tell me another way to get propecia cheap
d. is there anything in propecia other than finestaride
I've searched and I get this and that but nothing that sounds legit.
Please post and I thank you in advance.


Lets see he answered one part of my question and with a solution that was not of use to me being that I don't have insurance. I was simply giving him a hard time about Walmart.
I also wasn't asking your consent to home brew propecia. It was just an example of how ridiculous the misinformation is on this stuff so Merck can make millions.

livinthedream,

Of course we welcome all newbies to this forum and want to do our best to help them. However, just becuse you didn't like Vincehair's answer, he did give you his genuine opinion and provided you with helpful advice. Thus, replying with "shame on you" to people trying to provide you with genuine help isn't going to make you popular here.

Keep that in mind before you disrespect our members for trying to help you.

To offer my input:

a) I'm not familiar with this site. I trust there are a number of legitimate online pharmacies out there, but heed caution as there are just as many that aren't.

b) See A above.

c) Several members gave you some excellent ideas above, including vincehair

d) Of course. Copied from another website:

PROPECIA tablets for oral administration are film-coated tablets that contain 1 mg of finasteride and the following inactive ingredients: lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch, sodium starch glycolate, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose LF, titanium dioxide, magnesium stearate, talc, docusate sodium, yellow ferric oxide, and red ferric oxide.

I expect generic versions of finasteride will contain slightly different inactive ingredients.

Best wishes,

Bill

Simple

As mentioned above .Get the proscar and cut it into fourths. I never did this prior to 1 month ago and was paying out the @ss for propcecia.

since they are both made from Merck , it is the same quality

How did you get your doctor to prescribe proscar for you? I've tried numerous times to request proscar with different doctors and I've been told no each time.

Koala, I've gotten prescriptions from for 5mg of Proscar from every doctor I've asked. My regular doctor as well as my dermatologist. All I had to do was ask. I get the generic Proscar, cut the pill into quarters and take it every other day. Cost me $10 with my insurance and 30 pills lasts me almost eight months.

My experience with 2 online pharmacies has been good for the last 4/5 years

You can take just 1 mg finasteride for around 13 USD / month but you don't need to cut the pills everydays
http://www.4rx.com/online-phar...cia.html?affId=79599">Propecia

The cheapest way is to buy generic Proscar (5 mg finasteride) and cut the pill in 4.
This will cost you around 8 USD / month

Don't forget to add minoxidil. The combination is very good
