Costco offers generic finasteride at 33 cents, undercutting Amazon’s price of 42 cents.

One of the most competitive deals available comes from online supplier eDrugstore, which charges $5.06 for a 1 milligram tablet of Propecia and only 56 cents for finasteride. And eDrugstore’s competitive prices are just the beginning of the savings and convenience you can realize by ordering these drugs online.

Propecia and Finasteride: The Facts

Fighting a losing battle against male-pattern baldness, the primary cause of hair loss in men? Propecia and its generic equivalent, finasteride, might be just what you’re looking for.

Recommended by the American Hair Loss Association as “the first line of attack for all men interested in treating their male pattern baldness,” finasteride has been shown in clinical trials to halt the progression of hair loss in the vast majority of male participants.

Impressive Results

In the previously mentioned clinical trials, finasteride — the active ingredient in Propecia — stopped the progression of hair loss in 86 percent of men who took the drug. And 65 percent of the participants in those clinical trials reported significant new hair growth.

This blog post looks at both the effectiveness of Propecia/finasteride against male pattern baldness and the drugs’ current prices at a trio of conventional retailers. 

Stop & Shop is a supermarket chain that operates primarily in the northeastern United States, while Giant Food Stores has supermarkets in the Middle Atlantic states. Costco is a warehouse discount club with stores throughout the country. We’ll also track prices at Amazon as its online pharmacy is commonly compared to retail pharmacies.

For comparison’s sake, this post also reports on currently posted prices for 1 milligram Propecia and finasteride at eDrugstore.com, a longtime online prescription drug service.
