Brief Answer:
why did you stop the medicine in the first place?

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
Rabipur is vaccine against rabies as you already know.
Finpecia is drug usually used for hair loss.
There is basically no interaction between the two.
So firstly I want to know that why was the medication stopped since you dont need to stop using Finpecia.
Kindly answer my question.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Yes you are overthinking. please continue meds

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for following up with me.
Yes you are overthinking about that. There is no interaction between these two drugs.
One is a vaccine with specific cause and other has totally different action on different receptors. There is no connection in between them.
So do not worry about any interactions and please continue taking the tablet.

I hope I have answered your query well.
If you have any questions kindly ask me back.
Thank you
