Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is advisable to use these medications (finasteride, minoxidil and biotin supplement) for androgenetic alopecia for as long as possible, preferably lifetime. These medications are safe.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
