A bit off topic, but that's interesting that they don't make a lot on the Jalyn combo. Also, from the patient's POV, it may involve one drug co-pay rather than two if purchased separately. However, by offering the re-formulation, doesn't GSK get to extend their patent on dutasteride? That might be their financial motive.
I think you are raising a great recommendation on free samples. When I had to take an alpha blocker, I got it all free from samples my Uro had on hand (he was involved in its clinical trial.) It can never hurt to ask one's doctor if he has a free sample of anything he prescribes. I saved a lot of money on Cialis that way too.
