Does Anyone Know Where to Get Low Dose Finasteride Formulated?

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

Curious to ask, does anyone know of a pharmacy/vendor who is able to prescribe/formulate low dose finasteride?  Through some trial and error, I've come to the conclusion I can only take .25 of a standard propecia tablet (1mg).  Quartering the tablets is not so easy as they are already small pills, and doing anything more than halving the tablets causing the pieces to fall apart significantly.  I'm curious to see if anyone has a place to get custom prescriptions?

You can take a full pill on a 3 day split, and it will equal 0.25mg.

Buy a pill cutter online or at a pharmacy.  I use one I got at a CVS.

Takes a bit of trial and error but works much better than a sharp knife.
