Brief Answer:
Stop Mintop 10, Use Mintop forte/5.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for using XXXXXXX

It is one of the common problem and I too see many patients with similar complaints in my clinic.

Since you have developed more hair fall after starting Mintop 10, and with Mintop Forte your were doing good, I advice you to stop Mintop 10 and continue only Mintop forte. You can try Mintop 5 also.

You should continue the same drug and dosage which shows improvement with less side effect.

Continue multivitamins combination tablets.
I usually advice finasteride in the late stages after trying Mintop due to its side effects. If you get good result with mintop alone then you can stop Finasteride or else you can continue this drug with minoxidil for limited period of time.

Avoid more combing your hairs and comb only in the direction of your hairs. Avoid applying dyes and shampoos with chemicals and you can try herbal shampoos.

Hope this answered your query and will help in management.
Feel free to ask any related query.

Wish you good health.

Hi thanks for followup question.
You can use coconut oil once or XXXXXXX twice a week. This is good for dry skin and dry hairs.

Wearing helmet will definately affect you. Try to avoid it as far as possible.

Mintop requires long term use. As it prevents fall of hair by allowing continuous blood supply to hair roots by causing vasodilation. So i advice you to use for min 3-5 months.

Diet XXXXXXX in protein and vitamins will help you. Eat liver, green leafy vegitables, fruits more. Avoid roots and tubers. Early morning out door exercise will help you.

Hope this clarified your queries. Wish you good health.

Hi thanks for the follow up quety.

Exercise won't affect your hair fall. But if very strenous then it can cause problem. So adjust your XXXXXXX work.

Sleep 6-8 hour sound sleep is required which consists of regular undisturbed sleep.

I advice you to lead stress free life. Then your hair and well being will improve. Hope I clarified your doubts. Feel free to ask if any query.
Wish you good health.
