Thanks for writing to us.
From the description, it appears you are having male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia.
For the same you may continue taking oral supplements but with the same start with minoxidil solution application twice in a day. However for males 5 percent solution is required instead of two percent. Do not expect an early response as at least four to six months of application is required to see results. If results are good, you may need to continue with minoxidil for prolonged period to maintain result.
Hope that answers your query.
Take care
