Brief Answer:
Stopping minoxidil increases hairloss manifold.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully thorough your query and understand your concerns. Let me tell you that althogh Minoxidil is effective, stopping it will increase your hairfall manifold. Unless you decide to continue it lifelong, it would be a good idea to stop using it. Foligain contains certain vitamins and supplements, the deficiency of which may lead to hair fall. But in case deficiency is these supplements is not the cause of your hairloss, Foligain would be of no use. It is only in case of those deficiency causes that Foligain is helpful.

There is no shortcut to getting rid of unwanted hair. They occur due to hormonal imbalance which is common at your age. It is no use getting apprehensive about them.
