Hi, I was checking inhousepharmacy because I wanted to get Proscar, and found that there are 3 different Proscar choices with different prices.

The thing is, they are all done by Merck, but the boxes look different. So what is the difference between them??


I thought that the one with the closest expiry date would be the cheapest, but it turns out that that one is the most expensive... So what's the difference between them?

Not sure if this is the reason for price discrepancy but it could be due to the fact that they maybe parallel imports.

The cheapest one is imported from Spain I think.

The 3.80 is made in the UK and possibly the $4/tab is from Australia (not sure about this one).

Only had a quick look.

I prefer Dut, I open the soft gells and sniff it. It has the highest bioavailability that way. .1 is equivalent to 1 basically, saving money.

It looks to me like each type is made in a different country therefore has differing packaging. Why not call their free 800 number and ask?
