Buying Proscar/finasteride

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can anyone point me in the direction of a reliable supplier for Proscar?

 

I obtained my previous batch from Dr. Ashcroft, but I'm not getting a reply from him. Has his contact details changed?

 

 

Thanks,

 

WW.

Thanks - what is the best time of day to phone him - does he do texting?

 

 

Thanks.

 

I just called him today to order some proscar. He said they now do a generic one which is exactly the same and fine to use. Saves you about £50 from the origional.

 

I called him at 5:30pm.

After asking the same question on an american forum an english guy gave me some advice and I recently ordered my last batch of propecia from a site called www.Direct-propecia.co.uk it was really good value and it came in two days signed international postage (think it was from Jersey) But none the less good service.

 

When i first got into using fin i was a bit naive and ordered my first batch from one of the really expensive sites that google throws up in the top rankings, only a months worth but i mean with a bit of investigating I managed to get like 4 months worth for the same price. I guess it pays to shop around.

 

Having said that the second batch i ordered from one of the bigger pharma sites, it was cheap but took 3.5 weeks to get here had to ring them up and nearly got them to send out a second batch and it arrived on the final cut off day (Phew) but in the mean time i had a window of about 5 days which i had ran out in, that wasn't great.

 

Never tried Doctor Ashcroft does he do generics or the real Merck stuff ? quite curious.

Hi,

 

Just started looking into Propecia - an Im already confused. Am I right in saying that in the UK I need a prescription (i.e. Dr Ashcroft), or I can get it on line?

 

I was looking at http://www.direct-propecia.co.uk, and they do 2 products:

 

1mg Generic Propecia (Finax) 360 x 1mg (12 month's) Generic Propecia £120.00

 

5mg Generic Proscar (Finast) 360 x 5mg (12 month's) Generic Proscar £160.00

 

 

what is the difference between the two? Can I cut up the generic Proscar into 1/5th, and effectivly get 5 years worth for £160 ?

 

Had anyone used http://www.direct-propecia.co.uk ?

Pianoman, be very careful with internet pharmacies. Many unregulated foreign websites are selling fake drugs that will at the very least be a waste of your money, at worst harm your health.

You used to have to get Propecia on private prescription from a GP, but in the last couple of years some pharmacists have also gained the right to prescribe medicines. Since then, Boots and Lloyds Pharmacy have both started selling Propecia - the former in selected stores, the latter online.

Dr Ashcroft will prescribe you Proscar or a 'generic' version of the same. Proscar is a 5mg dose of finasteride licensed for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia. Propecia is a 1mg dose of finasteride licensed for treating hair loss. The active ingredient is exactly the same. You can split a Proscar tablet into fifths and get the same effect as Propecia, but cheaper.

Hi Pondle,

 

Thank you for that detailed reply.

Lloyds Pharmacy on line is £285 for 6 months!

Looks like generic Proscar, prescribed from a GP is the way to go.
