I have been on propecia about 6 years. Over the past 5 months I have probably missed 7-10 days a month. The past month I have noticed alot of shedding and am concerned I am experiencing catch up hairloss. Have I missed enough days that this could be the case? If this is the case, will I recede the point of never having started propecia or to the point of when I first began treatment. If the former is the case, should I quit treatment and accept my fate? Thanks.
I wouldn’t worry about missing a few days of the medication. It generally takes weeks or months of consistently not taking Propecia for catch-up hair loss to be evident. There is tissue fixation at least for a week, if not more. Talk with you doctor regarding your medication and clinical decisions.
