I wanted to send a question in about receiving prescriptions overseas. I live in Japan, and have started to notice that I’m going a little thin in the front. My Grandfather on my Mothers side was very bald so I’m assuming it a MPB thing. I’m in my mid twenties, not stressed out, drink a little bit more then I should, but eat very healthily.
My questions is do you know if prescritpions such as proscar are available overseas? And what kind of Dr. should I be going to to get checked out (that way I can tell my Japanese friends what kind of doctor I need to see and they can help me find one). Thanks for any information you have.
I am sure finasteride is available overseas. Finasteride is a generic drug name for Propecia and Proscar. Note that Propecia (which is prescribed for male pattern balding) is finasteride in 1mg strength; Proscar is finasteride in 5mg strength. Any physician can prescribe these medications, including your family doctor.
