hi..thanks for the query!
You seem to have something called Telogen effluvium is a form of nonscarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset. A chronic form with a more insidious onset and a longer duration also exists. Telogen effluvium is caused by a metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications.
My suggestion to you would be to do a few blood tests and an USG of the pelvis to ascertain the cause before you treat any of the symptoms.
Hair Loss is a condition where multiple causes ,deficiencies exist and without doing a complete work up ,it it unwise to start any random medication.As, by doing this, a lot of valuable time(& hair) is lost and a much more amount of time will be lost to regain them.All the above medications are OK and commonly prescribed ones too, however, none of them address the exact cause of hair loss.
Hope this helps..take care!
