It varies depending on the doctor and the size of your transplant, but generally you would continue Finasteride and Minoxidil after your transplant, and maybe have one round of antibiotics. Regardless none of these are 'required' and plenty of people don't take these after the transplant.

The only medication I prescribe in young men is the drug finasteride because it will prevent shock loss which is common in young men (see below)

After your procedure, generally antibiotics, anti-inflammatories are required (prednisone), in addition to symptomatic medications for discomfort and sleep.
