What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Chemical Name: FINASTERIDE (fi-NAS-teer-ide)

PROPECIA is the first pill form of medication used to treat hair loss in men, particularly in the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area (receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head). Male pattern hair loss is a common condition when men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp. PROPECIA helps prevent the hair loss by blocking an action enzyme and converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. PROPECIA is available only by prescription.

***For MEN ONLY and should NOT be used by women or children.


Generally doctors will advise to take one tablet by mouth daily. PROPECIA can be ingested with or without food any time of the day. The important thing is to remember to take it. You should expect to take PROPECIA for at least 3 months before you start to see results.


Not all medications work effectively for everybody so it is important to speak to your doctor about any health conditions such as the following:

  • liver disease
  • abnormal liver enzyme tests
  • prostate cancer
  • if you are suffering from a bladder muscle disorder
  • if you are unable to urinate
  • if you have ever had an allergic reaction to a similar medicine called dutasteride (Avodart)
PROPECIA should never be taken by a woman or a child. The key chemical called finasteride can be absorbed through the skin. Women or children should not handle tablets containing finasteride.

Do not give your PROPECIA tablets to anyone else. It has been prescribed only for you.
