    There is no real difference as far as I am aware. But cutting a proscar tablet into 4th's is easier than 5ths. I don't personally have problems with making 5ths but others may.

    When I first started - I cut my proscar into 4ths - and then just took Day 5 off (only took the proscar 4 out of every 5 days). No sense in taking more than you have to.

    I went off proscar for about 4+ years - and now that I've started up again I'm cutting them into 5 pieces and just taking 1 piece (1mg) every other day.

    I used to split the Merck brand 5mg Proscar into 4, but have recently started taking Merck brand 1mg Propecia.

    I feel it’s worth the extra money to duplicate the Propecia trials.

    Distressed.

    Using a pill slitter - I just cut one proscar tabs into 4 pieces. Then I take the largest piece and cut that in half.

    You have to play around w/ it - but it's do-able.
