I've been on minoxidil for about a year and a half, and it's worked, just not as much as I'd hoped... which is why I'm looking to schedule a hair transplant soon.
I'm seeing mixed things online about the use of Minoxidil following a hair transplant. A clinic in Istanbul recently told me I can't use minoxidil for 5 months after the transplant. Well, my question to that would be.. wouldn't the hairs dependent on minoxidil for the past year and a half fall out? Apparently all your minoxidil sheds ~3-6 months after discontinuing minoxidil. At the same time, I see some posts online (even from Doctors) encouraging the use of minoxidil after transplant to prevent shock loss.
What should I do here? Should I wait another 5 months and schedule after the shedding post-minoxidil, or can I use it sooner than 5 months?
