View Full Version : Propecia to Generic Fin

I just wanted to add my two cents with regards to Propecia versus Generic Fin.

A few years back I switched from Propecia to Generic Fin to save some cash. Immediately I went from no hair on my hands during shampooing to 50+ in one sitting. 6 Months later I lost almost half my density. I went back to Propecia and regained the entirety of my losses.

Recently in Sept of 2014 I gave doctors prescribed Generic Fin another try. As of today I have once again lost nearly 50% of my density on top.

I have no idea what the difference is, as from what I'm aware they're the same thing. In any case I just wanted to give an FYI to anyone using Fin to stick with what works. Obviously there is some slight difference that alters its efficacy depending on the person.

do you know the manufacturer of the generic you were taking?

I also take Finpecia and can tell that it works good for me. I've already mentioned in a thread that finasteride produced by different manufacturers can have different effects. Have you ever tried some other generic product? I mean not Cipla's.
