What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Proscar as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.

Available Strengths

Proscar tablets are available in one strength -- Proscar 5 mg tablets.

Proscar Versus Propecia

Propecia®, a medication used for treating male pattern baldness, contains the same active ingredient as Proscar -- finasteride. However, Propecia is available only in 1-mg tablets, which is not the correct dose for treating BPH (see Proscar and Hair Loss for more information).
