Dermatologist 's  Response

Tugain contains minoxidil. 2 percent twice a day is the ideal dosage for women and 5 perecnt is for men.
The point to keep in mind with minoxidil is that once started using you have to use lifelong, if you stop with a few months the newly gained hair shed off.
So, you have to make an informed choice about this.
As for your hair loss problem, you need to find the cause for this.which can be anemia, thyroid or hormonal problems - to mention a few.
You can start with anaphase shampoo and follihair tablet once a day.
Please meet your dermatologist to discuss it further
