Below are the most common side effects of Finasteride:

Please dont spread false details about a drug that has left many in distressed state and calling it a mild medicine !!
Just to give you some information, Transplanted hair is not dependent on Fin. The donor hair follicles are genetically different from the follicles that are effected by male pattern baldness. Donor follicles are not sensitive to normal levels of dehydroxytestosterone (DHT). Once transplanted to areas of balding scalp these follicles will continue to produce living hair. Finasteride lowers DHT levels reducing the effect on native (non-transplanted) follicles and by doing so helps to control progression of male pattern baldness.
Hair restoration specialists use Propecia and Minoxidil preparations in conjunction with hair transplantation not to maintain the transplanted hair but to prevent as much as possible loss of native hair from the balding scalp.
Hope you get the point. Fin is not needed for new transplanted hair.
