I have read that some doctors recommend the use of minoxidil after a transplant to help speed up growth. What happens if this is then stopped? Does the new transplanted hair that's grown become reliant on the minoxidil and fall out if it's stopped?

It could potentially fall out if stopped. Minoxidil can cause the hair to shed which may have the opposite effect to speedier growth.
