Is Propecia a must before/leading up to hair transplant?

Recommended Posts

It depends on your loss pattern and family history of hair loss. The general rule is to stabilize hair loss if possible with the meds before getting a transplant. Some get side effects from finasteride

I got them but I cut the dose in half and they have gone away. If you are going to be high on the norwood scale of loss I personally wouldn't even consider any kind of surgery without taking meds. You need to keep the hair you have. There are only so many donor grafts available.

I cut it down to half of a 1mg pill every other day. It did stabilize my loss. Doctors won't prescribe under 1mg I don't think. I got a pill cutter and cut it in half. Some people get proscar which is the same drug basically and cut it in fours.
