Hi everyone,

 

I am 25, and will be turning 26 in March. I had pretty bad thinning on my crown that has slowed down at least, and I think stopped over the past 2 years. No side effects or anything. I have been taking propecia every other day, as I have heard that DHT is inhibited for 48 hours. anyway, as i approach 26 I wont be able to be on my parents insurance ( as I am a graduate student and will be till i'm 27). I have been saving my stuff. So to preserve what I have, I will either 1) take .5 mg every 2 days, or 2) take 1 mg every 3 days? Which would you think would be better? I have been taking it every other day for a while, but it was 1 mg. Also .5mg every 2 days will last longer, than 1 mg every 3 days btw.

 

Other option, is to buy propecia online. Which scares me a bit.

 

Advice would be appreciated!

Talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for generic proscar (finasteride). This is the same medication as Propecia but comes in a 5mg tablet. You can quarter it using a $5 pill cutter. 30 tablets (a 4 month supply) will probably cost $20-$60. There is some chatter about the generic finasteride not working as well as brand-name Proscar, but if you get it through a US pharmacy with a prescription it is vetted by the FDA.
