Turning finasteride 5mg pills into a powder and then taking it in water 1/5 dose at a time

I wanted to ask you with regards to Finasteride. My GP recommended that I can crush my 5mg Proscar pill into a fine powder, dissolve 1/5ths of the powder in water and then drink the solution. I was wondering what your take is on that, and if that’s a recommended alternative to splitting the 5mg Proscar pill (cutting the pill is something that I’ve had difficulties with).

Your doctor’s recommendation sounds fine. Be careful not to do it more than one pill at a time as the powder will pick up moisture out of the air. Be sure to keep the powder in a tight bottle.
