The Fin is fine from the shop, it's 5 mg so you will have to cut it into fifths, some people will quarter it, take 4 days in a row, then miss a day, if fifths take it every day.

Hi Phil,
Merck is brand. Finasteride that is sold under different manufacturer is a generic. Generic contains the same active ingredient thus it is the same medication.

Fin 5mg is the generic of Proscar. If you like to try namely 1mg pills, so generics like Finpecia or F-Pecia will work.

Finasteride is not a fast solution for hair loss, however it is effective. The results are visible in 3-6 months, but all these are individual. You should be patient while on finasteride.

Now on the box (ordered from the shop on here)it says take half a tablet monday wednesday and friday on a perscription label with my name on.

Personally I would do quarters as it's easy to cut into into quarters.
