Dr XXXXXXX is not available and he has some professional commitments. I am answering on his behalf.

Tricovit is appropriate tablet given for these conditions but the benefits are not too great. Since the condition recovers by itself doctor use it in routine clinical practice as supplement for hair vitamins and minerals.

If you there is not much of hair loss you should not worry and the hair regrows again even without any treatment.

Hope this helps.
