Generic Propecia (1mg Finasteride) Now Available in the US?

Snippet from the press release —

Drug firm Dr Reddy’s Laboratories today said it has launched its generic Finasteride tablets used for treating male pattern hair loss in the American market.

The company has launched Finasteride tablets in the strength of 1 mg in the US market on January 2 following the approval of its abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) with 180 days of marketing exclusivity, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories said in a statement.

So it sounds like Dr Reddy’s has a 6 month exclusive window to sell their brand of generic Propecia before other pharmaceutical companies can legally make their brands for sale in the US.

I’m not sure if they’ll keep the Finax name they were using to sell 1mg finasteride in other countries or if they’ll go with something new, but if anyone out there has picked up some of their 1mg finasteride, let us know in the comments!

  1. Someone in my office called some Los Angeles area pharmacies (Costco, CVS, Rite Aid, etc) and I’ll post the pricing info we found a little later today. Availability could vary depending on your location, but it’s a start.

  2. Went to CVS today to pick up my Propecia refill and they mention that the generic option was now available. $63 for a 30-day supply. My Propecia script averages about $85 for a 30-day supply.
