According to the WiKi, the patent of Propecia in US has expired in Nov. 2013. Would you explain updates about generic products of finasteride? Is there any US company that has started manufacturing it?
Generic Propecia (finasteride 1mg) has been available here for about a year and a half, though it was exclusively made by Dr Reddy’s until around mid-2013. There’s a list of Propecia manufacturers at Drugs.com that have FDA approval, and while some of them might be US-based, I’m not sure if the medication is manufactured in plants elsewhere in the world.
Almost all of our patients have started using the generic, but the prices have not come down to levels I expected. The lowest price is still had by dividing a 5mg generic Proscar pill into quarters, though your doctor will need to prescribe this higher dose with instruction to cut the pill.
