Proscar, which is used to treat an enlarged prostate, and Propecia which is used to reduce male pattern baldness, are exactly the same prescription drug – 100% Finasteride. The only difference is that Proscar is a 5 mg tablet and Propecia is a 1 mg tablet. The 5 mg Proscar tablet costs $4.66 while the 1 mg Propecia tablet costs approximately $3.66. Splitting the Proscar tablet into quarters saves $2.50 per tablet or $910 per year.

Many users have switched from Propecia to Finasteride since it is now available as a generic drug and the 5 mg Finasteride tablet costs $2.66. Splitting the 5 mg Finasteride tablet into quarters saves $2.00 per day or $730 per year.

Drugs.com shows Finasteride tablets from 8 different manufacturers. They are all slightly different in shape, but in general appear to be small and should fit in the pill beds of the Small Pill Cutter.
