thanks for writing to us.
From the description it seems you are having male patterned baldness.
treatment is in the form of
Males 5 percent minoxidil solution 1 ml twice in a day applied locally over scalp with or without finesteride tablet
females minoxidil 2 percent solution 1 ml two times in a day.

so depending upon your fender, you any choose concentration if ad hair to be used. tablet follihair is hair supplement and can be continued. Propynate lotion can be of use only if you have dandruff over scalp. if the scalp is clean, you may discontinue its use.
You need to use above treatment atleast for five to six months to see some response. These edict es should be taken under doctor's guidance only
