Grey hair, hair loss problem, advised Androanagen, Melnora hair gel. Will it help in reversing hair loss ?

I am 29 yrs old and am having grey hair/ hair loss problem for the last couple of years. 70-80% of hair near side burns and also the sides are greyed out now. Even my beard and chest hairs are greyed out to some extent. My dermatologist prescribed me to take androanagen for the next 3 months for hair growth and also to apply Melnora Hair gel(Melitane hair gel from Glenmark) once in a day for the next six months to treat the grey hair.

Does androanagen helps in reversing my hair loss. Also how successful is the Melnora hair gel. Does it really help me to reduce grey hair as suggested by my dermatologist. Will these product cause any adverse effect? Please advice me.

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to HealthcareMagic.

As per your query you have the problem of white hair over scalp and chest with "male pattern baldness".

It is a common phenomenon in all males to have hair fall and a pattern of hair loss because of the hormonal influence. This also depends on the genetical factors form your parent's side.
I can understand your concern for the same. But you should understand that it is quite a natural phenomenon rather than any disease process or any illness which leads to greying of the hair.
Generally the greying begins by the age post 30 years. You are 29 years means you are close to that particular age. There are so many reasons for the white hair problem, but not a single one reason is close enough to tell the exact truth. Generally we consider it as aging process sooner or later.

We usually prescribe Vitamin B complex especially Pantothenic acid to eat by mouth for multiple months. Though three are variable results but is the only oral therapy.
Recently the product containing Melitaine is claiming good results can also be with tried. your doctor has very correctly prescribed the same.
Over all improve your diet with fruits and green leafy vegetables, stop any substance abuse and reduce your stress too!!!

I hope these information's will help you. If you have further queries I will be happy to help.

"Wish you good health and early recovery from the problem"
