When to Stop Propecia After Hair Transplant

Q:
propecia
I started the Propecia at the beginning of March (8 months ago), prior to the procedure last March. Should I still be on it?

A:

Finasteride was mostly prescribed for prevention of shock loss after hair transplant or losing native hair on the balding areas after a hair transplant. You have significant miniaturization on the front, top and crown area (90%-100%), which makes your preexisting hair on balding areas prone to further hair loss. Now that you had your transplanted hair grown, you can decide to stop Propecia. By doing that, you may risk losing your own hair on the balding area further (transplanted hair does not need Propecia for its growth) or you can continue taking the medication to increase the longevity of your preexisting hair on those areas.
