Exactly two months ago I went to pickup my normal propecia prescription at Costco. I noticed that the price was about $70 cheaper, and thought the price had simply dropped. When I opened the bag at home, I noticed that it was not Merck propecia, and was Dr Reddy's. I was not really shocked as I keep up on this stuff somewhat, and realized the generic must have finally come out. I was honestly a bit reluctant, being that I have been on propecia for 7 years, and had seen some pretty good results. Thought why switch after all this time, but also realize that generics for this are going to be the norm, and it will be more and more common for pharmacies to fill with generic unless name brand is specified. Now, to be honest, I had been feeling I was losing some ground in the past year or so in my temple/front area. I just kept taking propecia and figuring keeping with it was better than getting off. I have to accept that over the past 7 years I am going to lose some more hair, as propecia is not a cure, but rather an inhibitor. After taking the first Dr Reddy's, I did notice that I had a spaced out feeling, just like I had the first day on propecia many years ago. It is a feeling I distinctly remember. I also noticed that for the past month to month and a half I have been having sexual side effects, that has now mostly subsided. I had the same issue/time frame when I went on propecia. In both cases, I just kept "moving forward" and they eventually resolved themselves. After several weeks, I really started to feel like my hair line was thinning out a bit, but to be honest, I was having the same concern while on propecia recently. Noticing a little thinner "gap" in the front of my hairline when styling it, though it feels like it has only accelerated since getting on generic. Although, it could be that I would be seeing the same results on Propecia at this point. I keep telling myself that it is all in my head, and I would be where I am regardless of which one i am on. Now, I cannot say that I have noticed my shedding or hair fallout being any worse when shampooing or styling my hair, in fact, seems to almost be less with Dr Reddy's. One thing I do notice is I am seeing a lot of the crappy whispy hairs falling out, which is something I had not seen as much on propecia ( of course could be in me head as well). So here are my thoughts, either the generic, given the sexual sides and spacey feeling I felt actually has "jump started" the finasteride effectiveness again, and I am actually shedding crap hairs, and may actually see a turn around in the next few months, the generic is crap and I am really losing ground, or it is all in my head. I have seen a couple of posts about people who have switched, but not much. I would imagine there are a lot of people out there now that have been moved to generic, and likely the vast majority haven't noticed a thing, but of course the ones with issues surely make the loudest noise online. So, can I get people who have made the switch to chime in and give their experience / thoughts after making the switch.
