So the patent on propecia ends soon. Anyone heard if a generic version will be available and at what price? My pharmacist just raised the price on Propecia by about 20%

As I understand it, today is the day the patent on Propecia expires (June 19th, 2006). Found that date listed on a couple websites after doing a quick search.

this is the patent data about propecia:
http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cder/ob/docs/pate..._No=001&table1=OB_Rx
it seems merck has a patent standing as late as nov 05, 2013. By the by, pharmacia and upjohn apparently approved for yet another minoxidil solution under NDF(new dosage form) with an exclusive patent expiring in 2009 and patent expiration in 2019. New dosage form is supposedly aerosol, foam whatever it means. all the best...

I thought that Proscar had expired? I'm wondering where the U.S. generics for that would be?

Thanks waittosee for the link to the propecia patent and various expiration dates.

Do you or does anyone else know if that means there won't be an FDA approved generic version of propecia until 2013? I guess I don't understand if the 2013 patent was an extension preventing any propecia generics or whether it was some minor change and thus an FDA approved generic may be available soon given the June 2006 expiration of one patent. Not sure if anyone has some insights...

Thanks

What difference does it make... You can already get Proscar, which is the same as Propecia, for a lot less anyway.

You can patent this.

Merck has authorized Indian pharmaceutical giant Dr. Reddy's to manufacture and distribute a Proscar generic. You can view details and links in an article I put up yesterday:

So I guess it wasn't going generic back in '06, huh? Any updates on when Propecia might go generic?
