Hi, I am 27 been taking propecia and Kirkland minoxidil for 3.5 years to good results hair has thickened and sure have had some regrowth. However I am looking at a career in the armed forces, in the naval service. I am guessing I will have to stop using these meds due to the military life style living on a ship etc. Can I expect all my hair to fall out soon after stopping treatment, which I fear will happen

I have no experience regarding being in the military while on hair loss meds, but surely you can take propecia? Rogaine might be inconvenient yes, but I think you can take a pill every day, no? Just take a large supply with you and get a new supply whenever you have a few weeks off.

Hi, I used meds through the last 5 yrs of my military career in the navy. There's really no reason to give up yr hair regime because of life onboard ships or subs
