Default Anyone have a bad experience with finpecia?

Been on 1mg propecia for roughly 3.5 years. No problems, seemed to stop the shedding and appeared to be helping keep what I have. About 6 weeks ago, the pharmacy I normally purchase name brand propecia at switched to stocking only generic. I started receiving 'finpecia' from them as the generic alternative. About a month into taking this generic, I feel like the shedding has increased dramatically, and over the last week or so I have felt constant itching over my entire mid scalp and suspect it has started to thin further in that area. The same itching sensation I had in my crown as that was aggressively thinning before I started propecia. The only other change I have made during this time is started to take a multivitamin made specifically for hair health. Not sure what to do now. Still have 3 months supply of finpecia. Throw it away and find the name brand elsewhere? Or is that panicking too early? Anyone else have a similar experience?
