If one has been on minoxidil for years wouldn’t all hairs at risk of loss be minox dependent? I know they work differently but what does adding Propecia do for those hairs at that point? Since stopping minoxidil will cause you to lose those hairs regardless of Propecia. So lowering DHT appears to not help hair that is minoxidil dependent. And if one has been on Minox for years that could be a lot of hairs, right?
If you add Propecia do the same hairs then become dependent on both?
I really don’t know. The minoxidil dependent hairs are not the permanent hairs, just those vulnerable to miniaturization. The same is true about finasteride (Propecia), but I do not know what happens as the two drugs overlap with regard to dependence.
