Has anyone had sucess in using generic fin, Because I have been on generic fin for 8 months with no success. Would swicthing to propecia give me better results?

This uncertainty is why I always go for the real deal even though it costs more. Have you had any other effects from what you've been taking, eg. watery semen? I reckon if the answer is yes then you've been getting good pills, but they don't do much for your hair and switching brands probably won't work. If the answer is no then maybe you've been buying bullshit pills.

Generic or not, it shouldn't matter as long as it is legit.

I have been taking fin for months and not getting watery semen does that mean it's not working?

There is no difference between real legit generics and brand name except money.

How do you define success and when do you expect to experience it it?

Why don't you get your generic fin's purity tested in a lab?
Plus if you get no side effects, it doesn't mean they are fake, it could also be that you do not get side effects on fin.
I think that if you are getting them from a reputable pharmacy, they are the same. Like someone above mentioned already, the difference would be the price.

I too have been taking a generic Finasteride since August 1st 2013 from
'Dr. Reddy's Laboratories' company and Ive been experiencing a positive change to my hair for quite some time now.
Of course, it has not given me a full head of hair back (yet- lol) but it certainly has been improving my hair and had stopped my scalp from continuing to lose hair. Using Finasteride is an ongoing process and when one does start using Finasteride, he must be tranquil and calm.
I have had no serious or bad side effects since its usage in 2013.
As I understand it, some finasteride generics are not good enough but the
'Dr. Reddys' is A-OK.
Spencer Kobren (a great guy) has known of 'Dr Reddys' positive help from quite a few other men as well. Of course, he also knows of other types of generics that do nothing to help!
After using Dr Reddys finasteride for a few months in 2013, I was wondering if I should change to the brand name, 'Propecia'. What stopped me from changing was the fact that that generic fin' was going quite well for me so I have been staying on Dr Reddys since 2013 to this day!
(with good continued improvements)
On a side note, I became Dr Wesley's Pilofocus phase test patient in Nov. 2015 last year!
I cant wait to see if Dr Wesley's phase testings turns out to be a 'new science' for all of us.
In Nov. of this year Ill be going back to Dr Wesley's clinic.

I use Fincar 5mg from Cipla, they are legit in my case, they always have been when ever I bought them in the past. The minoxidil I was using had already slowed my terrible shedding down dramatically but I was still seeing like 4-5 hairs on my hands when I wet it, but that is versus like 50-100 hairs pre-minoxidil. I've been on Fincar for 2 weeks now and there are pretty much 0 hairs when I pass my hand through my wet hair. It could be the minoxidil only, or it could be the fincar and minoxidil working together. But I trust it's both. I have had no visible regrowth or thickening just yet, as i've been on them for nearly no time at all compared to the time i'm supposed to give them to see the full extent of their success. Min i've been on since Feb 4th, Fin since March 2nd, so I have a long way ahead. But it is very positive to see that the drugs actually stopped the nightmarish shedding I was going through. It was so bad and it had me so stressed out and overthinking about hairloss.
