I was using Rogaine with some moderate success. However, I have just had a hair transplant. If I start back using Rogaine, will it: harm the newly transplanted hair? stimulate the new hair’s growth? have no effect?
If you saw benefits from Rogaine (minoxidil) prior to the hair transplant, you should get back on the drug since withdrawal may cause reversal of those benefits (meaning hair loss). The transplanted hair should not be impacted by minoxidil, but waiting until the scabs fall off is probably the best timing I might suggest. Or you may wish to talk to your transplant doctor about the best timeframe for restarting the medication.
