Who here doesn't take either Rogaine or Fin or any kind of medication post HT?

Recommended Posts

I stopped taking Fin months after my HT due to sides. And now I'm seriously considering skipping Rogaine all-together. I already only take it once a day instead of two. It leaves my hair super-plumb and greasy.

Has anyone stopped taking these post-HT and noticed any negative effects?

I stopped Finasteride 1 month after my procedure, and had not used Minoxidil at least a year prior to my procedure and only recently started using it again about 9 months now, and ht hair grew fine although if you have lots of native hairs to maintain in the recipient area then you may need to maintain some kind of support routine.

I don't take meds but to be honest don't need them. I found minoxidil useless apart from irritating the shit out of my scalp.   Also the hair i lost i lost and replaced with transplants and i don't have miniturisation in the rest of my hair and have high lateral sides with thick robust hair and I'm 40.   Everyones situation is different though so no Yes or No answer.

I stopped minoxidil about 2 weeks before my HT (mid january 2020) and never came back on it. Still taking Finasteride 1mg/day.

Difficult to say if I lost ground because of minoxidil as my head was shaved, but so far I'm happy with what I've got.

I stopped finasteride a few years ago after using it for over ten years. I didn't experience noticeable loss afterwards, but then it didn't really benefit me while I was on it. It possibly slowed my loss somewhat but who knows? I've seen enough good results from finasteride though to conclude I was just one of the unlucky ones.

I took finisteride for about 11 years, but stopped taking it about 11 years ago because it was no longer working for me as my hair started falling out again anyway.
