Hi Doc, I have to say, this is really nice what you’re doing in this site. My question is this…
I was using minoxidil for a year and I suddenly stopped. I had hair fall immediately and now my hair is very thin. How does someone stop or taper minoxidil treatment?
Currently I am on propecia medication. Do you think I’m still going to grow back my hair with propecia?
Minoxidil and Propecia are medications you need to take for life. If you stop either medication you will lose the benefits that each provided. Patients for one reason or another (knowing these risks) who want to stop taking the medication wean off from them over the course of several months to decrease the perception of sudden hair loss, but make no mistake, you will lose the same amount of hair. It just may not appear as drastic.
Propecia will likely not grow back all the hair you lost. Sorry, I know the news is not good.
