Weekly summary - 158th week -- Finpecia as a alternative to Proecia?

My expenses on hair loss treatment is about RM 80 per month. It is included RM 50 for Proscar (split in to four) as a substitute to Propecia and RM 30 for Kirkland minoxidil 5% as a alternative to Rogaine. Well, with RM 80, it is not enough for you to have a treatment in Yun Nam haircare per week. Lets not question whether Yun Nam's treatment is effective. If the RM 80 regime is getting result, no one will want to spend money in Yun Nam for obvious reason.
I guess the major cost is from Propecia as it is actually RM 160 per 28 tablets. If you purchase Proscar 5 mg and split into 4 pieces, it is a tedious job and you consume more than 1mg. So, if the patent for Propecia is expired, we can get a generic propecia at a much cheaper price!!! 
Tell you, Propecia is in fact expired 4 years ago, on 19 June 2006 according to sources from internet. Minoxidil has a patent expeired in 1996 as thus we can buy Kirkland at a faction of price of Rogaine. Will you get the generic propecia. Yes, but online. One of the famous generic propecia is finpecia manufactured by Cipla from India. The price is a fraction of Propecia.
However, I am still not dare to try it. If you have use any generic propecia, please share here.

I'm from Singapore and I have been using genetic propecia bought from an online shop. Don't know where in Singapore do they sell generic propecia. They work exactly the same as the real thing, and I am convinced that my hair loss has stabilised over the past few months even after changing from the real stuff to the generics.

Only thing I'm not happy about is that these online shops typically sell you the pills at about 40-50 cents (USD) per pill, but when you receive the pills, you will see that the recommended retail price for sale in India is 30 rupees, or around 1 dollar for pack of 30 pills. So they are making huge margins off you. But can't really complain as I don't want to fly to india for no reason just to buy the pills.

So, the bottom line is, I don't think there is any real difference between the brand propecia and the generic one, but you might be better off if you buy it from india yourself.

Baldness is largely the result of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) interacting with those hair follicles that are genetically vulnerable to their effects.Propecia works by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone into "DHT". By reducing the DHT present in the scalp the thinning process is slowed and some times even reversed.
