Hi Doc,

I'm having problem of hair fall since last about 1.5 years. Earlier my hairs were quite dense and strands were quite strong and thick. For the same I started taking Homeopathy medicines which helped me but only for the time when I was on medication. Seeing no permanent solution I stopped the medication after about 8 months. Currently my forehead portion has increased, my scalp is visible from outside and hairs have become week.
Kindly suggest some solution.

Hi there XXXXXXX
Have you tried a new derivative of Minoxidil lotion called nanoxidil?
It is currently not available in india to the best of my knowledge & can be got on the net.
Do try it for 3-4 mths & then for best results go in for a hair transplantation surgery.
If you tell me which part of the world/India you are from, can suggest you where to go for the same.
Also for best results, one needs to see you in person & discuss various options & tailor it to suit your needs & financial capabilities & aspirations vis-a-vis hair groth.
Cheers & Good Luck!!

Thanks for the answer XXXXXXX

Can you suggest me any marketed product of nanoxidil which I can get over net. Also is this product already tested for any kind of side effects?
Answered by Dr. Praveen Rodrigues 14 minutes later
2%, 5%, 10% minoxidil are common marketed products in the world & been around Regaine, Neoxidil, Rogaine, Hairgrow (lots of trade names).
Neoxidil is a new/recent developed molecule similar to but supposedly devoid of the side effects of minoxidil while retaining its beneficial effects...hence my suggestion.
Cheers & Good Luck!
