I am only 25 but I am starting to see signs of Male pattern baldness and I wanted to be proactive. I asked my doctor about Proscar, because I read that it could be cut into fourths, and he told me that it would look fishy if he prescribed this medication to someone so young. He told me he could only prescribe Propecia for me. However, I’m not sure that the cost of Propecia fits into my budget. Any advice on what I could do would be great.
Really, the only thing I can suggest is to find another doctor who will prescribe what you want. If you came to see me, I would first insist on an examination to determine if you are really balding (miniaturization study).
