Hi, I has some questions about Propecia.
1. From what I understand, if you take Propecia it might not last (meaning after anywhere from 5 to 12 years, you go start balding again) is this ture?
2. I read someones post saying that he took Propecia for one year, stopped, started to bald and then his hair grew back again. Can this really happen? Is this possible?
I’ve had some patients on Propecia for over a decade with continued benefits, and I’ve had some on Propecia that saw their hair loss slowly start again after a few years. Each person is different, so I have no way to know how you’ll respond.
Your hair may not be dependent upon Propecia so if you stop it, depending upon the value you got from the drug, your hair may continue to grow. Once you lose your hair from genetic balding, it is usually a permanent effect. Propecia may just slow the process down.
