Hello sara,
Severe mental stress is one of the cause of getting hairloss.
Minoxin 2% is minoxidil a medicine that helps regrow hair but it also has a side effect of sudden hair loss and is not a complete treatment by it self.
To stop the hair loss you need to correct the disturbance like :-
-Reduce mental stress with help of yoga,meditation,and exercises,
-Take a good balanced diet,
-Get tested for anaemia and if the haemoglobin is low please start on iron supplements,
-Get prescribed some multivitamin and mineral tablets by your family physician.
These things should help to reduce some hair loss.
For a complete evaluation and treatment please consult a Dermatologist(skin specialist ) and he will do the needful for you.
Take care.
