What do you suggest I should do for Hair Loss solution


Q: Hi,
I am a 23 years old guy.I was having this hairloss problem along with dandruff so one of the doctors I consulted suggested me minoxidil 5 % to be used twice daily along with ZcalD tablets(Multivitamins) once a day and ticovate + stiemazole+liquid paraffin(combination of these three on alternate days). Extreme shedding of my hairs started in the 1st week and still continues as I now enter my 4th week of treatment.I am losing 4 times as much hairs as I did before this treatment and now there are many patches on whole of my head where I applied minoxidil. I know minoxidil can cause initial shedding but what if the shedded hairs do not come back.What do you suggest I should do?
Thanks in advancr
