Question: If I were to undergo a course of high strength minoxidil to grow hair – could I maintain that growth with Propecia and or a Laser Comb combination or will the new hair disappear immediately after I stop using the Minoxidil? If the latter is the case… why might this happen?
Answer: Hi, Len. In many cases, cutting down to just one medication will maintain the hair that has been restored from the combination of both medications, but this is something that we usually advise a trial period for. So, after one year you could stop using the high strength minoxidil and see if the results are maintained from the sole use of Propecia – if not, you can restart minoxidil treatment again.
Remember that the combination of Minoxidil + MPG or Azelaic Acid and Propecia is more effective than just one of the medications so it is likely that even if the hair is maintained temporarily when one of the medications is stopped, the speed of hair thinning could increase relatively over a long period of time.
