What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Propecia 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.


Propecia tablets are available in one strength -- Propecia 1 mg tablets.

Proscar and Propecia

Proscar®, a medication used for treating an enlarged prostate (also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), contains the same active ingredient as Propecia -- finasteride. However, Proscar is available only in 5 mg tablets, which is not the correct dose for treating baldness.
There is currently no over-the-counter Propecia available.

Generic Propecia

Propecia is available in generic form (click Generic Propecia for more information).
