Finasteride Storage Methods

Finasteride should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture or heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container. Because finasteride is so dangerous for pregnant women, women should not touch broken or crushed finasteride tablets if they are pregnant or may be pregnant.
 
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your finasteride as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
