Do they charge in Canadian or USA dollars?

I for some reason think they charge in US dollars but couldn't find anything on their site.

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

They charge Canadians in Canadian dollars. Everyone else is in US dollars.

They take both for hair transplants.

For liquid Finasteride, you can only get that in Canada. They are not
approved in the US, as of this date (10/10/2016).

That's a shame.

Since Brexit the pound has been hit hard.

I'd worked hard and saved enough but with the value of the pound plummeting I doubt I can afford it now and I won't have a window for another two years.

Just my luck...lol

They take Canadian dollars from Non-Canadians?

Really don't know a lot about hair transplants. I do know some about liquid Finasteride, as I
have been taking it for a few years now.

They have a liquid Finasteride that is strong, but is not as systemic (therefore, supposed to
have lots of side effects). However, the dosage is not approved yet in the US, only Canada.

A better way of putting it would be that they charge Canadian prices for Canadians and US pricing for non-Canadians. So yes, if you are non-Canadian and you want to pay in Canadian it will be at the equivalent exchange rate to the US rate. The currency is irrelevant, it's the amount that is the point.

I guess i'll have to explore other options.

Topical finasteride can be bought anywhere in the US where compounding pharmacies exist. Your local doctor need only write a prescription that a compounding pharmacy can accept. Finasteride, or any medication really, can be prescribed as a doctor wishes (usually) for individual cases. The reason why you don't see macro level availability of topical finasteride is because Merck still has the patent on topical finasteride, even though they never released their own version. The version you are getting from Canada is not "approved" per se by the Canadian government. It is simply available in limited batches like any other medication would per the explanation I gave above.

Currently I do take doctor prescribed topical Finasteride. It's .01% and 60 ml per volume. It's supposed to be equivalent to
one milligram.

It has helped my hair. But in my own opinion, the Progesterone has really done a lot more. That is .5% that I currently take.
I take a gram or two a day, and apply it to my scalp daily. Also use thirty percent Minoxidil with it.
