Hi there Vinod. How long is it since you met these doctors' & how many days/months have you used Mintop so far & what percentage of lotion & how do you use it actually? Also where do you hail from & what is your affordability? What job are you in? Accordingly, I can suggest a treatment regime for you. But by all accounts from what you are saying, it is probably best that you settle for either hair weaving or hair transplantation depending on your expectation, budget & the expertise of the treating dermatosurgeon near you on the ground. Please do continue the Mintop in the interim. Another tablet that may be useful in conjunction may be Finasteride 1 mg taken once daily that can be added to the regime. Good Luck & should you wish a detailed discussion on this & other available treatments (too lengthy for a discussion here), please do use our premium 'ask-a-doctor' feature or get in touch with mois on the ground in Blore should it be convenient or could refer you to someone doing hair transplantation in your area. Cheers!
