A:   Hello
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
MX5 contains Minoxidil. It helps lesser in stopping hair fall. It helps mostly in regrowth of hair.
First of all it is required to find out the cause of your hair fall.
I would advise you to get your dandruff treated.
Also, get following investigations done:
1. Hemogram
2. Thyroid Profile.
If they come out to be normal, you can consider taking a good hair supplement like Follihair.
Dandruff should be controlled properly.
I won't recommend in your case to use MX5.
You can also go for Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.
I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
