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.


Finasteride tablets are available in two strengths:
  • Finasteride 1 mg tablets (generic for Propecia)
  • Finasteride 5 mg tablets (generic for Proscar).
While Proscar and Propecia cannot be used interchangeably, some healthcare providers may recommend cutting the 5 mg tablets in quarters to use instead of the 1 mg tablets (see Propecia and Proscar for more information).

Generic Finasteride

Brand-name and generic finasteride are licensed and available for sale in both strengths (click Generic Finasteride for more information).
