Hi Dr.Rass . I have been under OCD treatment for the past 11 years. I am undergoing SSRIs (Es-Citalopram oxalate) Would you recommend Finasteride in my case.
Shall I try topical minoxidil will it in any way interacts with my OCD medication.
I can’t recommend finasteride to you, since I do not know if you’re even a candidate and it is a prescription medication. Talk to your doctor about a prescription and you can learn his/her thoughts on it. As for minoxidil, that is over-the-counter so you can use it without my input (read up on it and use your best judgment). You shouldn’t have any interaction problems with your OCD meds and minoxidil, but without knowing which medications you’re taking I can’t say for sure.
There have been some reports of some mood / behavioral changes with Propecia, although these changes are very infrequent and it needs to be studied further. That is why you need to have a good relationship with your doctor.
