Hair Loss Remedy FAQ - What's the difference between Propecia and Proscar?

What's the difference between Propecia and Proscar?

Both medications contain finasteride and are made by the same company, Merck. They differ only in strength. Propecia has 1 mg of finasteride, while Proscar has 5 mg. Proscar has been around for a while for the treatment of prostate enlargement, which, like male pattern hair loss, has been linked to DHT. Because of the price disparity between the two medications, some people procure Proscar and divide the tablets into smaller dosages instead of buying Propecia.
