Propecia
Good day

My husband heard of the anti-hairloss drug, Propecia. Is this available in South Africa, and how much does a month' s supply approximately cost?

He probably needs to go to the doctor for a prescription, so I just want to make sure it is available in most pharmacies, otherwise he will be going to the doctor unnecissarily.

Thanks!

Yes, it is available in SA, and ALL pharmacies should keep it. Expect to may more or less R310 - R400 for a packet. And yes, he'll need to see the doctor first
