I currently take Propecia, 1 mg., and am paying $86 at Costco for a one month’s supply. I have been told by a pharmacist that the generic has the same ingredients as the brand name. The generic sells for $22 for the same amount. My question is – are the results the same? If the brand name works better, I’ll gladly pay the extra money. Am I paying too much? I could really use a professional’s opinion. Thank you.
Genetic drugs are same as brand name drugs in its efficacy. The difference is the price and the shape or color of the pill and its packaging. Even the 5mg version which you cut in 1/4s will give you the same results. The 5mg version costs about $6 a month and I believe that Costco will sell you a 3 month supply for $28 which is quite a cost saving.
