Brief Answer:
Proscar can be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for posting in health care magic.
You can continue using Proscar and can be taken 24hrs before surgery.
I think you are taking proscar for Benign prostatic hyperplasia. If you are taking the drug for this condition, there are chances of reversal of the benefits if you stop it.
Nothing to worry.
If you have any queries, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
