What are the Alternatives to Propecia ? | Hair Loss & Hair Transplant Surgery Guide

A number of companies manufacture and market products that contain finasteride after the Merck & Co patent expired in 2006.

These include:

  • Ajanta Pharma who markets a product called Appecia
  • Aleppo Pharmaceutical who market a product called Prosteride
  • Cipla who market products called Fincar and Finpecia
  • Dr. Reddy's who market products called Finax and Finast
  • Intas Pharmaceuticals who market a product called Finalo
  • Ranbaxy who market a product called Finara

Some of these other products may offer significant cost savings over a product such as Propecia. However, it is worth remembering that Propecia is the longest established and has the most clinical research to support its claims to success. Sometimes, the extra cost simply means you get a better quality product.
