Finasteride after transplants?

For the post-op users that did the fue transplant and were prescribed finasteride, is the prescription supposed to be taken forever or just for a few month?  I am 90% on board and about to book but I’m hesitant bc I don’t want to take a pill forever and I was reading about the side effects and I that pushes me away from it. I know the answer is probably on here but I want to hear from actual, firsthand users.

Thanks for your replies in advance.

If you don’t get sexual or other side effects, then since genetic hair loss is progressive, I generally advise patients to stay on it for life. It has the advantage when you are older, of reducing the risk of prostate cancer by 25% in addition to slowing down the hair loss that is almost always progressive.

Get a virtual consultation with Dr. William Rassman and Dr. Jae Pak for hair loss options. You can learn more by scheduling an appointment.
