What is the cheap alternative for Androanagen tablet ?

Doctor, is there any affordable supplement for ANDROANAGEN tablet/capsule since each tablet is priced around INR15 (90 tabs costing around INR1350) ? My dermatologist is habituated to prescribe costly drugs/medicines & expects people to buy them at a shop he has got ties with, hence I believe there might be an alternative to aforesaid medicine. I ve no qualms in spending more for Minoxidil solutions like Mx-5, Coverit 5%; & hair products like SebaMed, Vichy Dercos Hair shampoos etc., Pls suggest accordingly.
