finasteride (fincom 1)
Omg I had to stop taking the Fincom 1 pill it was just making me sick after 1 week, its should have been propecia but they send me Fincom I will not recommend this to anyone. Waste of money. ## Hello, Anthony! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem you encountered. However, that's one of the hazards of ordering medications in such a manner, there's no way of knowing what you're going to receive and what the quality is. That's why the FDA regulates the ones that are available in U.S pharmacies. Are there any other questions or concerns?

Fincom-1
Has anyone tried Fincom-1? I bought this hair loss treatment from Unisule Pvt Ltd's direct sales shop. It was very good deal for 90 tablets of 1mg finasteride. But, I'm sort of hesitant of using this now. Is this safe to take? grateful for any information about Fincom-1. ## Fincom-1? Yes, it is a very popular Finasteride tablets (generic Propecia) here in Japan. I guess we Japanese like this medicine, because we can see the analisis report of the product at the manufactur's page. If you have Japanese friends, you should ask him/her to google fincom in Japanese katakana letter. Then you will find out how popular the med is. And also a very funny discussion is going on at 2channel jp among Fincom maniacs. Fincom maniacs are there to compare with other finasteride tablets or lo...
