While on propecia (finasteride) is it ok to take optimum nutrition 100% whey protein powder without interacting with the propecia (finasteride) or causing more hair loss? thanks.

Proprecia: In all cases you should not take anything until you have the OK from your doctor. I would appreciate having you drop a note about your doctor's answer.

OK: OK to take it. But you are wasting your money. If you eat normal food you get no benefit from this supplement. If you do not eat normal food, change your menu.
