This is certainly not useful advice. It's not up to you to determine
which software is appropriate and acceptable for another user to run.

To the original question, when installing python software using
upstream's methods, it will embed a reference to the path of pip/python
used. Using Guix, unless you register that version as a GC root, it will
eventually be garbage collected and you'll have to re-install.

On a different note however, yesterday a new package was added to guix,
protonvpn-cli, which I'm guessing is the python program you're using. I
suggest updating your Guix installation and trying it out to see if it
works as expected.
