Welcome to healthcare magic forum
Thank you for your query
i understand your concern regarding hair problem
You can use minoxidil .
it is only US FDA approved topical solution for hair loss.
it is very safe and effective one.
you need to apply it for very long time.
You should understand that no medication can bring your back to the level what you had in past .
we can maintain the existing hair only .
for new hair growth ,hair transplantation is the only option.
better to discuss all these thing with your consulting doctor.
I hope I answered your query

Dermatologist Dr. Kalpana Pathak's  Response
Thanks for writing to us.
As you are having androgenetic alopecia, I would definitely advise you to use minoxidil 2 percent as it is the only US FDA approved drug for this pattern of hair fall. Your doctor has managed your hair well till date. So follow her advise and start using minoxidil.
Minoxidil maintains hair in growth phase and by causing blood vessel dilation also increase supply if blood, oxygen and nutrients to hair roots or follicles. With regular use of two to three months desirable response may be achieved.

Hope that answers your query.
