Should I Take Propecia After a Hair Transplant?September 23rd, 2005
Q: I have heard that you should take Propecia for 6 to 12 months following a hair transplant. Is this correct?
A: I would only use Propecia if you plan to continue the medication long-term.
That said, Propecia — the brand name of the hair loss drug finasteride — is very helpful in preventing further hair loss. I do recommend that patients who have hair loss stay on the medicine for an extended period, regardless of whether or not they decide to have a hair transplant.Related Posts:
