Doctor :  
Sorry I am not aware of it

Doctor :  
While using Minoxidil, you should not use any other oil

as there would be reduced efficacy

User :   but doctor suggested me to use Minoxidil and other one also nite Minoxidil and mornings trident
Doctor :   Are you taking any medications?

Ok, I shall suggest a tablet in addition to the current treatment

Proceed

Doctor :   Yes

User :   but if we search in google or something
User :   while using minox ur hair will be fine after stopping it

Doctor :  
It is nothing like that

Minoxidil is a drug
Doctor :  
to improve blood circulation in the area

and that shall surely help

If the hairgrowth is still not improving, then you should use it again

Initially 2%
Doctor :  
and depending on the response, then next strength shall be decided
User :   oh ok...
