the doctor that did my hair transplant told me that i â€œshould notâ€ use proscar because when the droplet of finasteride drips into the 5mg proscar pill, all the finasteride could be on one side. so when you cut the pill into 5th or 4th you might not get anything in a couple of 1/4 pills. is this true??
I highly doubt this is true. If this information is true, wouldn’t there be a chance that a “droplet” of the active medication (finasteride) can also miss the pill, making it a dud? This just goes to show you that have to be very careful about what to believe and what not the believe. Or hope that there is someone out there who is very careful about where they put the “droplet”.
The only concern I have heard about cutting Proscar in to 1/4 pieces is that the dosing may not be exactly accurate and that if you cut more than one in advance, the cut pills may be able to hydrate from the humidity in the air and then become less effective. I do not think this is of clinical importance. If you elect to cut the pill, but sure to store only one cut pill in a sealed small air tight container.
