I consulted a hair transplant doc who prescribes prednisone for post-operative swelling. I wouldn’t want to take this due to its obvious side effects.
Have you ever heard of giving prednisone after a hair transplant and do you prescribe it?
Sounds weird to me (and unnecessary).
The use of short term prednisone following a hair transplant is common to prevent swelling in the first few days. Short term steroids are not usually a problem unless you are diabetic. This is a medical call by the doctor you are choosing. Please address this with your doctor so he/she can better explain the issue and address your particular concerns.
