The drugs you are using are used mainly for alopecia. Please get your thyroid function tests done. You might be suffering from hypothyroidism.
Secondly please see you don't have dandruf.
Avoid oily foods. If you are having any mental strain please reduce it by appropriate measures.

Dear Barvin,
Thanks for coantacting hcm,
Considering your problem I would first like to know the pattern of hair in your family, both from your mother side and father side, especially in the females. In case it is running in the family, we dont have many medicines to stop female patter genetic loss. However hairtransplant is a good option to go in for.
Minoxidil will help you to reduce it to some extent and may delay your hair fall.
you can increase the concentration to 5% in case you feel confortable.
Warm regards...
